Dons to dent Pompey’s playoff push
AFC Wimbledon looked doomed to suffer relegation from League One just a few weeks ago, but a six-match unbeaten, which includes four wins, has seen them pull clear of the drop zone.
Indeed, a point against Portsmouth on Saturday would guarantee survival for Mark Robinson’s side and the omens look good, as the Dons claimed a 1-0 victory the last time they played host to Pompey.
Robinson has certainly impressed since taking charge at Plough Lane in January, as Wimbledon have lost just five of his 18 matches at the helm, while only champions-elect Hull have collected more points over the last six games.
A run of one win in six has seen Portsmouth’s playoff push faulter over recent weeks, but they will still head into the weekend occupying sixth place.
New boss Danny Cowley has won five of his 10 matches since taking charge last month, but he is yet to solve Pompey’s problems on the road.
Portsmouth have failed to win any of their last four away games and just two of their previous nine, a run of form that could ultimately cost them their playoff place.
We are predicting Portsmouth’s poor away record to be extended on Saturday, with our overall prediction being for Wimbledon to claim a 2-1 victory which would guarantee their League One status for another season.
