Portsmouth prepare to entertain Burnley at Fratton Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Pompey are clearly on top, having won 16 and lost only 6 of the 26 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Fratton Park was just last season, in January 2011, with Burnley inflicting a narrow 1-2 defeat upon the Pompey in a Championship match.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Its not been a very profitable last few weeks for Portsmouth, and I'm afraid the Footymad team cannot see it getting too much better here. Look no further than honours being even at the end of this one. No-score draw
