Portsmouth vs Northampton Predictions

Portsmouth’s inconsistencies will be highlighted by many fans as the reason they have not played a more pivotal role in the title race and that was evident again a few weeks ago after their shock defeat to bottom of the table York City. With their playoff position long since secured Pompey have now won three in a row and appear to be gathering momentum ahead of the end of season shootout. With Plymouth Argyle already set to be their opponents, manager Paul Cook will be wary of complacency as the only thing left to be decided is the order of the playoff fixtures.

Despite several teams being in contention in the first half of the season it was Northampton Town who emerged from the pack to ease to the title. The Cobblers have not tasted defeat in the league since Portsmouth beat them just before Christmas 23 games ago. After making the shock move from Oxford last season, manager Chris Wilder and his team have never shown any sign of nerves on their way to the title. With the season all but over, Town have maybe taken their foot of the gas, although no team has yet had the quality to break the undefeated streak.

In a bit of a dead rubber it is hard to predict who has the most to play for. Although their season is over Northampton will be keen to avenge the loss from earlier in the season. Portsmouth will also want to ensure they enter the playoffs on a high and in a meeting of two of the best attacks in the league you can get both teams to score at 7/10 with Betfair.
