Here are Adam Drury‘s football tips for the League One play-off semi-final second leg between Portsmouth and Sunderland on Thursday.

Correct score: 1-1

The two previous matches between these sides before Saturday’s first leg finished 1-1, and that sequence would have extended had Portsmouth’s Gareth Evans directed his crossbar-bound free-kick millimetres lower in the second half.

Sunderland have now scored exactly one goal in five consecutive matches, while Portsmouth have drawn 1-1 at Fratton Park five times this season, more than any other result.

Portsmouth to receive over 1.5 cards

Portsmouth average three cards per home game against other top-six teams this season, picking up exactly three in their first three meetings with Sunderland.

Their visitors’ last five opponents have averaged 2.6 bookings per match.

George Honeyman to be carded

Honeyman has picked up 10 yellows and a red this season, including one in Saturday’s first leg.

He has been carded in all three League One meetings with Portsmouth, with five of his cards coming against either top-six or higher-league opposition overall.
