Competition: League One
Market: Portsmouth win
Odds: 17/20 @ Bet 365
Looking to extend their advantage at the top of the League One table, Portsmouth will welcome playoff hopefuls Charlton to Fratton Park on Tuesday night.
Starting with Kenney Jacket’s Portsmouth side, enjoying an incredibly bright start to the season and already holding a six-point buffer at the top of the League One table, the Blues are almost universally regarded to be the leading contender to book a return to the Championship. Picking up a 2-0 win over Southend on Saturday, Jacket’s men are now enjoying an eight-match winning run across all competitions. One man to watch for the hosts will be their leading goalscorer Jamal Lowe. Putting in a Man of the Match showing and finding the net against The Shrimpers over the weekend, the 25-year-old now has eight goals for the season.
As for Lee Bowyer’s side, while Charlton will have their sights set on securing another playoff position this season, the visitors have struggled with their consistency. Despite winning three matches on the bounce last month, the Reds could only slump to a 2-1 defeat away at fellow top-six hopefuls Blackpool on Saturday. Now losing their last two matches on the bounce, Charlton have also struggled when up against Pompey in the past. The Addicks have lost two of their last three meetings against Jacket’s side, failing to score in both defeats.
Bet: Portsmouth 17/20 to beat Charlton in Tuesday’s League One showdown @ Bet 365
