Two League One clubs with play-off aspirations face off at Home Park when Plymouth Argyle host Portsmouth in what promises to be an entertaining clash on Monday evening.
Buoyed by a string of four straight victories at home, the Pilgrims will take to the field ready to attack from the off against Pompey, though Portsmouth are potent counter-punchers, and Kenny Jackett’s charges are targeting their fifth away win on the bounce.
Argyle’s games at Home Park have been a thrill a minute since early October, with an average of 3.5 goals scored across their last quartet of assignments on their own patch, while goals were notched at either end in the most recent three of those gripping tussles.
Portsmouth meanwhile, saw goals plundered at either end in three of their last four matches on the road – games that averaged a coupon satisfying 4.0 goals per 90 minutes.
Monday’s game between confident Plymouth and Portsmouth teams has all the makings of a proper slugfest, and the over 2.5 goals and both teams to score combination is favoured as a result.
Neither side look ready to end runs of positive results however, and that in turn makes a high-scoring 2-2 draw a correct score prediction worth backing.
