📏 Form Guide

Portsmouth LDDDDW

Portsmouth will want to continue from where they left off last time out with a 2-0 EFL Trophy victory vs Colchester United.

It’s not been often in recent games that Portsmouth have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. In fact, Pompey have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 9 goals along the way. That kind of pattern might not be sustained into this next game, though.

Shrewsbury Town LWLWLL

Following on from being beaten in their last game against Middlesbrough in EFL Cup action, Shrewsbury Town and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.

For Shrewsbury Town, the goals were scored by Scott High (13'), Jason Cummings (60') and Rekeil Pyke (73'). Marvin Johnson (21'), Ashley Fletcher (31', 53') and Marcus Tavernier (65') scored for Middlesbrough.

Indicating their fondness for action-packed matches, the back of the net has been hit 21 times in the prior 6 matches in which Shrewsbury Town have played, yielding a mean average of 3.5 goals per meeting. Opposing teams have got 12 of these goals.

👥 Head to head

An aggregate of 10 goals were scored between the two sides during those clashes, with 5 of them from Pompey and 5 for The Shrews. The average number of goals per game works out to 1.67.

The previous league match between these sides was League One match day 34 on 15/02/2020 which finished with the scoreline of Portsmouth 2-0 Shrewsbury Town.

💡 Prediction

In this match, Portsmouth look likely to score a couple of goals when they line up against Shrewsbury Town, who could well struggle to score themselves.

We therefore think that it’s going to be a comfortable 2-0 margin for Portsmouth at full-time.
