Football League sponsors Sky Bet have installed Portsmouth as clear favourites to beat Peterborough United in today’s final Sky Bet League One clash of the season

Portsmouth -Vs- Peterborough United
Venue: Fratton Park
Date: Saturday, 5th May, 2018
Kick-off: 17:30pm

It’s the final match of the season and instead of what could’ve been a play-off decider is now nothing more than a glorified friendly!

Pompey and Posh were both in the hunt for a play-off place but with poor results in the last few weeks, they’ve both dropped away from that challenge and are now faced with a final match with only pride (and League places) on offer.

While Posh can’t get any higher than the eighth place they now hold, they could drop down to 11th depending on the final day results. Pompey could leapfrog Posh though if they win today but they could also end up in 12th place should results go against them!

Pompey are on a three match losing streak and lost to basement side Bury one-nil last weekend while they last enjoyed victory six games ago when they beat Champions-elect Wigan Athletic two-one.

Posh stopped a rot of four defeats on the bounce last weekend when winning their final home League match of the season two-nil against Fleetwood Town.

Although both sides have been in a poor run of form, it is the fact Pompey are the final days hosts that the bookies believe will give them the edge and beat Posh. Pompey have odds of 19/20 to end their home campaign with a victory with Posh given odds of 11/4. The draw priced at 13/5.

Posh came out on top of a two-one scoreline at the ABAX earlier in the season but what do you think the score will be this time? PREDICT THE SCORE HERE.

Many fans feel the match will be very tight though with three draws being heavily voted for. They are 0-0, 1-1 and 2-2!
