Leaders Portsmouth have been shaky lately (W3 D1 L2) but despite all that they continue to top the table and remain very high on confidence. Northampton are also enjoying a solid first season back in League One with the Cobblers established in the top 10 even if their away form is far from great (W5 D1 L7).

Our first Portsmouth vs Northampton prediction is that the majority of the goals in this match will be scored in the second half.

Pompey so far scored 60.9%, or 28 out of 46, of their league goals after the interval. The Cobblers also tend to come to life mainly after the break with 65.7%, or 23 out of 35 goals, for them scored in the second half.

Goalscorer anytime prediction: Colby Bishop to score anytime

Pompey’s star striker Bishop has 15 goals in 28 league appearances this season. He scored in 2 of Portsmouth’s last 3 home league matches and also in the last 2 rounds. This is why with our next Portsmouth vs Northampton prediction we back Bishop to get on the scoresheet again.
