Leicester come into this game having not won in the last four matches following a draw with Ipswich on Boxing day. Nigel Pearson knows the key is goals, and although they are winless in four games, they have scored in each game and in fact have scored in their last seven matches.
The last three meetings between the sides have seen a draw at Fratton Park the last time they met, Portsmouth won this game last season 0-1, and of course had an amazing 6-1 victory last season at home. Portsmouth are not at home today though, and with one of the worst away records in the division, they have picked up just 6 points on the road this term. 80\% of Portsmouth’s points tally has been earned at home.
Leicester have not lost in four matches at the KP Stadium, and Valuechecker does not expect them to lose today. Appleton does seem to have his Portsmouth side well organized though, and despite the Boxing day defeat to Millwall can hold on for a point.
