Portsmouth manager John Mousinho has to choose a team with limited availability. Josh Dockerill (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Tino Anjorin (Ankle Injury) miss out here.
Portsmouth and Barnsley should both be able to find the back of the net here although it’s difficult to select a clear winner.
A close call, and we think a draw is quite likely. With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a tight encounter with a score draw at the end of the match.
