Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After dropping two points in a goalless draw with Shrewsbury Town, Portsmouth will be looking to give fans something to cheer about when they take on Rochdale at Spotland Stadium. The Pompey have big ambitions for the 2020/21 League One campaign, but it seems as if they are once again making a slow start to the season. Rochdale, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 3-1 defeat to Swindon Town.
The Dale experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the season opener, meaning that they face an uphill task in Sunday’s showdown against the promotion-chasing side. Anyhow, away win should be considered as Portsmouth failed to turn their dominance into goals in the goalless draw with the Shrews. In their last encounter in the League One Portsmouth rolled over Rochdale 3-0, and you should bear in mind that the Pompey are eyeing their sixth consecutive win over the Pompey in all competitions.
