Charlton vs Portsmouth Score Prediction

Charlton's long wait for a League One victory came to an end last Tuesday as the Addicks came out on the right side of a six-goal thriller against a managerless Exeter City side.

Ben Garner's side were winless in eight League One matches prior to that result, but are now heading back in the right direction. Such is the congested nature of the current League One

Portsmouth head into this Monday night fixture winless in their last three League One outings, but still firmly in the automatic promotion picture following an impressive start to the campaign.

The visitors have been formidable on the road this season, winning three and drawing one of their opening five league games away from Fratton Park. Danny Cowley's men occupy fourth place ahead of their trip to the Valley.

Score Prediction: Charlton 1-1 Portsmouth

Harry Smith's Tip: BTTS - Yes
