Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Portsmouth will be looking to build on a 2-0 win over Sunderland when they take on Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park on Matchday 32. The Pompey did not make a flying start to the season, but they have been making progress week by week, and, as a result, they are now seen as one of the main favourites to secure automatic promotion to the Championship. Portmouth are eyeing their ninth consecutive win in all competitions, and they are likely to take advantage of the fact that Tranmere Rovers do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment.
The Rovers are on a three-game losing run in the League One ahead of the visit of the Pompey, meaning that the lack of confidence should prove to be a big problem for the relegation strugglers. January signing Steve Sendon has already started paying off, and we predict that the former Birmingham City full-back is likely to keep his place in the starting XI. Recco Hackett-Fairchild, on the other hand, has yet to make his Portsmouth debut.
