Recent respective form guides
Portsmouth's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Pompey have scored 4, a worringly large 7 have been leaked at the other end.
Everton's away form is none too clever either, losing only 1 of the last six, but drawing 4 of them. These low-scoring games have seen just 3 goals scored and conceded.
Portsmouth are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 29 points from 28 matches. Everton find themselves in a respectable 6th position, courtesy of the 48 points they have accumulated from 29 games.
