Pompey to put pressure on high-flyers

With a massive 35 goals last week, it’s odds on for another action packed weekend for Sky Bet League 2 teams. Read on for title sponsor Sky Bet’s take on Pompey’s chances this weekend.

The Blues travelling to Mansfield would have been an unlikely league fixture a few years back, but it took place last weekend and Pompey were unfortunate to not take all three points as two goals within five minutes from Andy Barcham and David Connolly respectively gave them a 2-1 lead.

But last year’s Conference champions managed to score a equaliser on 72 minutes and the points were shared.

All of Pompey’s games since getting promoted have had more than 2.5 goals and they’ve scored in all four games.

It promises to be an enthralling encounter against high-flying Chesterfield on Saturday and you would expect Both Teams to Score at 4/6 and Over 2.5 Goals at 5/6. 

Guy Whittingham’s side can go into this game with confidence as given their scoring record, it is interesting to note that Chesterfield have lost eight of their last 11 away matches when they have failed to keep a clean sheet. Pompey are 11/8 to beat the Spireites on Saturday.

Other reasons to bet:
- Pompey have had over 2.5 goals in their last three matches
- Pompey have been winning at half-time in two of their last three games
- Pompey have drawn two of their last three matches
