The Swans managed to correct the blip that was a home loss to Bristol City by beat ‘Boro and Portsmouth can provide another maximum for the Welsh outfit.
Portsmouth, as big as 9/2 at Betdaq, have seen a fantastic run of 6 wins in 7 collapse to 1 point from 12. This could simply be a bad patch or it could be the beginnings of a tiny squad starting to fade as the players become more and more fatigued. At this stage it’s hard to tell.
A loss to Derby and a draw with QPR are no major worries but Pompey can be dismayed at losing to both Doncaster and Barnsley and the high flying Swans can fully expect to capitalise on their nerves and the players from Fratton Park must again be thinking of relegation.
Swansea are typically involved on low scoring encounters but Pompey’s open nature could play into their hands; over 2.5 goals is 6/5 at Paddy Power and Sinclair is 7/5 (bet365) to get a goal at any stage.
