Pompey Predictions League - update #8

Pompey Predictions League - update #8

The Pompey Predictions League is very much part of this site now isn't it? Would it be the same without it - I'm not sure it would to be honest with you.

Perhaps it didn't quite work out in the fashion expected but six points from a possible nine proved the end result after Pompey - following a win at Wimbledon and defeat at Northampton - ended a successful enough week with a 4-1 victory over Fleetwood.

Now to build up some proper momentum... then again Scunthorpe will be mighty tough for the Blues at Glanford Park and a point wouldn't be bad at all.

Over to uspompeyfan with his latest update to the 2017-18 season...

Surely a day to celebrate as Pompey clobbered a fancied Fleetwood side who came prepared to play, 4-1 with a brace each to Pittman and Lowe. It wasn`t just the scoreline, but the quality of the finishing that made the game memorable; even Fleetwood's equalizer was unstoppable to be fair. While the score was a little flattering, Pompey were worthy winners on the day.

Predictors were unusually subdued prior to the game with only 9 people predicting home win. This could be due to a removal of the blue-tinted specs, but two regular posters, Ibizan Blue and yours truly, USPF, are still awaiting their first points.

Little change at the top as the top 5 all predicted Pompey's victory (could be a reason why they are top 5) and Steaming jumped into the 6th spot with his prediction of the blues win. Jim still leads Lorna by 5 points and they in turn have a 10 point cushion over the pack.

Keep on keeping on guys.

Anyone can enter at any time remember. Just because you missed out on predicting for the game against the Cod Army it's by no means too late so join in now, for the first time perhaps in the next League One game.

This comes at Scunthorpe this afternoon.
