Burton vs Portsmouth (By: Luke)
Burton is really on a nice form and comes from a 3:0 win over Scunthorpe away from home in a very deserved way. They now have four victories and a draw in last five matches, but won't be able to challenge for the playoff spot being nine points behind the sixth-placed Doncaster.
Portsmouth is in a better form now, coming from their fifth consecutive victory and chasing the direct promotional place. Most recently, they outplayed Rochdale with a 4:1 result at home, showing the dominant side from the first till the last minute. They are now two points behind second Barnsley and a victory here remains a must for them.
The hosts shouldn't change much for this one. They continue to miss midfielder Templeton (28/5). The guests can't count at goalkeeper McGee (1/0), defender Whatmough (26/0) and midfielder Donohue (10/0) due to injuries.
Both teams are near their perfect form and even though Burton has no real competitive motive for this one, I believe they will come up strong trying to get a positive result against one of the best teams in the League One. Both teams scoring and goals in overall an open game remains definitely a must-try for me and represent a real value bet.
