Reason For Coventry vs Portsmouth Predictions

  • Coventry are currently 4th in League One, having gone eight games without a loss, winning six of those.
  • Portsmouth are also in great form, winning their last five and no tasting defeat in 2020.
  • Coventry have scored 15 goals in their last eight games, a shade under two goals a game.
  • Portsmouth have scored 13 in the same period, a rate of 1.625 goals per game.

Can Coventry climb into second place?

A win here for Coventry, combined with Peterborough and Wycombe dropping points, would put them into the automatic promotion places. The side have been in great form recently, not losing since a 2-1 loss to Shrewsbury before Christmas and they look in good shape to be there, or thereabouts, come the end of the season.

Their goalscoring record over the season sits at 1.42 goals per game but they’ve increased this rate in recent weeks, scoring 1.875 goals per game over their last eight games. This run of form in front of goal has come at a good time for Coventry and they’ll be looking to add to their tally against fellow promotion hopefuls, Portsmouth.

Will Pompey pick up another vital three points away from home?

Portsmouth’s route to the automatic promotion places is the same as their opponents this week despite having a point less. If Portsmouth win this match and both Wycombe and Peterborough drop points then Portsmouth will find themselves 2nd in the league. They’ve won their last three away games without conceding a goal so the chance is there for Pompey to take but this game represents a much tougher challenge.

Portsmouth have averaged 1.46 goals per game this season but have also been able to improve on this record in the short term with 1.625 per game on average. These stats seem to set up an exciting match up on Tuesday night and Portsmouth will be hoping to continue their superb away form on route to The Championship.

Who comes out on top in this pivotal promotion game?

Both sides will come into the game full of confidence after a great start to 2020 and there are goals within both teams in recent weeks as they mount their promotion challenges. The thing that looks most assured from this game is goals and we’re backing the 2.5 goal line to be beaten in this game on Tuesday night.

Picking a winner is a little harder but Coventry have only lost once at home this season and we think they just have the edge coming into this game. We’re predicting they will come out on top, but only by a slender margin, and think Coventry will wrap up a 2-1 win.
