Portsmouth vs Luton
League One action for me for tomorrow in a game that will see Portsmouth host newly promoted Luton Town. The game will be played at Fratton Park and will kick off at 15:00 UK time.
Portsmouth were one of the favourites to gain promotion last season and started the season very well, however, the middle and end of their season didn't go to plan and they didn't fully live up to their standards of expectations. It wasn't too long ago that Pompey was a solid Premier League side and competing in cups. :)
Manager Kenny Jackett is very experienced and seems to have settled his squad down. They don't seem to have lost many players, especially any key ones. their squad for me is one of the strongest in the league and I would expect them to finish in a playoff place this season after just missing out on a place last season.
I've seen that in preseason games, Portsmouth has scored 23 goals and have looked dangerous on the attack. I expect them in-front of home fans on an opening day to really make a push for a good start and I expect a comfortable game for Pompey. Jackett has been impressed with the start they have had preseason, he has expressed that they are focused on having a good start to the season.
Luton Town has recently been promoted from League Two and will be looking to adapt to life in League One. they have also looked good in preseason and I think they will have a good season themselves. Will they finish in a playoff spot, I don't think so. The difference between League One and League Two is minimal in my opinion and I think Luton do have the capabilities as a club to do well this season.
I think Portsmouth will win this game in front of their own fans and will be backing them to win at a price of 2.20 with Unibet. Good Luck all.
Luton actually beat Pompey in the cup last season and I think Pompey will be looking for revenge.
