Pompey Make Case For Defence

Notts Forest are a tough call in the Championship and are perhaps best left in favour of in-form Portsmouth at 8/13 (Betfred).

Victory for Nottingham Forest in their game in hand would thrust Billy Davies’ side right back into the automatic promotion race in the Championship but having registered back-to-back draws against Preston and Millwall, they’re a touch risky at 17/10 with William Hill to get the better of unpredictable Middlesbrough.

Paddy Power’s 23/10 marked against the draw is arguably the best bet at the Riverside, where offer 4/6 for the match to produce fewer than 2.5 goals but stakes should be kept small ahead of this tough-to-call Teesside encounter.

A safer bet are rejuvenated Portsmouth. Steve Cotterill’s charges have won four on the spin, keeping clean sheets in all of those victories and they’re a home banker at 8/13 (Betfred) to get the better of Scunthorpe at Fratton Park.

The Iron have lost their last five on the road, failing to score across that quintet of defeats and up against Pompey’s stout defence, Ian Baraclough’s goal-shy travellers ill find it tough to snap that sequence. The hosts therefore look set to prevail ‘to nil’ an outcome available with 888Sport at 7/4.

Derby meanwhile, are Coral’s even money favourites as they host Doncaster but as both teams have only just started picking up positive results after dreadful runs, this is one punters would be well advised to steer clear of.

Recommended Bets:
Portsmouth to beat Scunthorpe ‘to nil’ – 7/4 (888Sport)
