Bet on Portsmouth vs Leicester – Midweek form counts for nothing

| 24.09.2010

Friday night’s Championship game is a repeat of the midweek Carling Cup clash between Portsmouth and Leicester.

Goals from Michael Morrison and Lloyd Dyer game Leicester the 2-1 victory and it’s 8/1 for the same result to happen on Friday night.

Poalo Sousa has no injury worries to compete with and will likely name an unchanged side with Steve Howard and Paul Gallagher leading the line for the Foxes.

The Foxes have won three of the last four against the South coast team and are 6/4 to repeat their midweek success in the Portsmouth vs Leicester betting market.

After being sent off in the midweek game, Pompey midfielder Richard Hughes is suspended which means Michael Brown will feature in the centre of midfield.

Pompey boss Steve Cotterill knows that his side need to start finding the net if they harbour any ambitions of climbing their way out of the relegation zone.

Three points against Leicester would put them level on points with their opponents and Portsmouth are 9/5 to win at home.

Pompey have only scored two goals in the Championship, both of those coming in the first half and the goal in midweek was the first time Portsmouth had scored against Leicester at home in five attempts – they are 9/4 to not score in the match.

Leicester have managed 111 attempts on goal but only manage to put the ball in the back of the net once in every 19 attempts.

Despite the three goals that the Pompey fans witnessed in midweek, a stalemate is a distinct possibility and it’s 8/1 for the game to finish 0-0.

The draw is available at 23/10. See the full the Portsmouth vs Leicester match betting odds market here.
