Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Portsmouth and Swindon Town, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table, face each other at Fratton Park on Boxing Day. The Pompey are eager to secure automatic promotion to the Championship, and they are leading the standings ahead of Matchday 20. Portsmouth defeated Hull City 2-0 without taking a single shot on target as the Tigers scored two own goals in the League One derby, but, no doubt, the triumph gave Kenny Jackett’s men a confidence boost.
The Pompey aim to move one step closer to return to the Championship, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Swindon. The Robins do not seem to be at their sharpest ahead of the Fratton Park clash, and seeing that they suffered six defeats in the previous seven league fixtures, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the league leaders.
