The club is going through a continuous streak of two successive defeats and could not reach a victorious outcome in any of its last five games. The home crowd, usually referred to as the “12th player”, have failed to significantly impact Portsmouth’s recent ten meetings, as they ended in 4 home triumphs and 3 away wins. Looking at their previous five clashes, it becomes apparent that two featured over 2.5 goals and two witnessed goals at both ends. Throughout these, Portsmouth managed to prevent goals in their net one time and failed to score on their own in three. Over the course of the team’s previous five outings, the sides scored an average of 2.2 goals.
