The game of the weekend in League One is unquestionably taking place at Fratton Park, as two former Premier League outfits meet, with Portsmouth and Hull City facing off in a top of the table clash on Saturday.
With the sides separated by just a point, it should be a tense battle and may well be a very gritty encounter with both teams desperate not to lose. Hull enter the weekend in first position, as they returned to winning ways in midweek with a 3-0 win over Accrington Stanley, after winning just one in seven before Tuesday’s fixture.
Portsmouth are close behind with a game in hand over their upcoming opponents, so Kenny Jackett may adopt a slightly cautious approach to ensure they definitely do not lose the match. They have kept six consecutive clean sheets in League One, winning five of those games, including a 2-0 win in the reverse fixture in December, a win they achieved without having a shot on target, as Hull scored two own goals.
It was a very low-key affair when they met last month with just one shot on target in the whole game, so a repeat may be on the cards with what is at stake, a bore draw or a slender win is the most likely outcome here.
Our tip is for Portsmouth to win with under 3.5 goals scored in the game at 2/1 with Sky Bet.
