Portsmouth have played 5 matches so far this season in the League One 20/21. Out of those games they have managed to win 2 of them. This has given them a win percentage of 60.00%.
This shows that their excellent performances have been rewarded with the wins that they deserve. Sitting in 9 they are in a strong position to have a good finish to the season.
Part of the reason for their success is their ability to outscore the opposition. This is shown with their goal difference of 2. The ability to keep out the opposition is a vital part of winning football matches but it does require the ability to score goals at the same time. Portsmouth have managed this with aplomb and it shows with the number of goals conceded sitting at 5 and their goals scored column showing 7.
With a goal scoring record of 1.40 it is no wonder that Portsmouth have managed to make the season such a successful one. They have managed to achieve more than what their fans expected at the start of the season and if they keep up their current performances then they are likely to keep it up.
Over their last five games Portsmouth have had a little bit of a blip. They have won 2 out of their last five. However, they have had them before during the season and managed to come out strong on the other side so they should manage to do the same now and get back to winning ways.
They have managed this while still being relatively porous in defence. They have conceded 5 goals in just 5 games. This shows that success if not always built on a solid defence, and sometimes teams are just able to outscore the opposition, like Portsmouth do.
Their goal scoring prowess is a vital cog in the machinery that has put them into such a good league position. So far they have managed to score 7 in just 5 games. That means that they score 1.40 per game. Their regular ability to score goals means that they always have the ability to win games, no matter who they are up against.
Taking all of these stats together explains why Portsmouth are currently having an excellent season. Barring any catastrophic injury worries there are no reasons why they shouldn’t continue their excellent form and have a strong end to their League One 20/21 season.
