Out to up­set odds at Frat­ton

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH -

MAC­CLES­FIELD take a break from the Na­tional League on Satur­day and make the long jour­ney to Frat­ton Park where they’ll hope to pull off an FA Cup up­set.

The Silk­men are clear un­der­dogs for their clash against Portsmouth, with bet365 of­fer­ing 15/2 that they re­turn home with a vic­tory.

The draw is a 7/2 chance (Stan James) and it should be noted that Pom­pey have been strug­gling to win at home this sea­son de­spite their rel­a­tively lofty po­si­tion in League Two.

Paul Cook’s side have found op­po­nents dif­fi­cult to break down and Town will set out with a sim­i­lar game plan in the hope of land­ing at least a re­play.

As you might ex­pect, Portsmouth are the 4/11 favourites (BetVic­tor) to win the game, with the Hamp­shire side sit­ting in the au­to­matic spots in League Two al­though they have tri­umphed in just two of their eight games on home soil.

Mac­cles­field have lit­tle to lose and have bat­tled gamely in re­cent away matches at Dover and Brain­tree, los­ing by the odd goal on both oc­ca­sions.

Odds of 7/1 (Paddy Power) are avail­able that they land a 1-1 draw and you can get 11/1 (Win­ner.com) that there is No Goalscorer in this game.

Kris­tian Den­nis will be look­ing to snaf­fle any chances that come his way, with the striker 11/1 (Lad­brokes) to break the dead­lock, while a 2-1 win for the vis­i­tors is on of­fer at 25/1 (Sky Bet) which would be a mem­o­rable cup shock in the first round.
