Portsmouth vs Bolton Preview


Portsmouth lead League One by three points from Bolton, but I'm backing the visitors in this top-of-the-table clash.

  • Head to Head

Pompey have failed to win either of the last two home games - including a 4-0 loss last time, while Bolton are in red-hot form. I'm favouring the Trotters.

  • Portsmouth lost their last home match 4-0
  • Portsmouth are winless in their last 2 home matches
  • Bolton have won 2 of their last 3 matches against Portsmouth
  • Bolton have won 10 of their last 11 matches
  • Bolton are unbeaten in 13 of their last 15 matches

Head to Head


These sides have met six times in League One since 2019 with Portsmouth holding a 4-1 head to head record. There has also been one draw.

Portsmouth Form


Portsmouth are three points clear at the top of League One after back-to-back wins over Burton 2-0 and Northampton 3-0.

Those wins came away from home and were much-needed after Pompey picked up one point from their previous two games in front of their own fans.

Portsmouth drew 2-2 with Charlton having twice led and then produced a horror show in a 4-0 defeat to Blackpool in the last match at Fratton Park. 

Bolton Form


Bolton come into this top-of-the-table contest on the back of 10 wins in their last 11 matches in all competitions.

The Trotters have surged into the top two in League One having won eight, drawn one and lost one of their last 10 matches.

Since drawing 0-0 when last in action in the league two weeks ago, Ian Evatt's side have recorded wins over Harrogate 5-1 in the FA Cup and Port Vale 2-0 in the EFL Trophy.

Verdict

This should be a cracking top of the table clash, but I'm backing the visitors with Bolton flying at present. Take the visitors in the double chance market and to win.
