Football is a game that rarely offers second chances. Portsmouth are afforded one tonight and at 7/5 with Coral, it should pay to back them to take it.

Pompey were within 9 minutes of becoming a high-profile first round casualty in the original tie and despite having to make the trip to The Electrical Services Stadium tonight, they should have learnt from that scare and make their superior quality pay.

Sitting in 13th spot in League 2, it is their away form that is letting Pompey down this season, but if you look beyond the bare results, some of the performances have been much better than the points they have picked up. They were comprehensively beaten by Plymouth on Saturday, but that was very much the exception to the rule.


They are not far from finding their feet away from Fratten Park and against lower league opponents the 7/5 with Coral is a decent price.
