The new League One season finally gets underway this weekend.

The opening weekend of the Football League campaign is a special moment for fans all across the country.

With a summer of recruitment behind them and the points columns reset, it’s a time for optimism, hope, and fresh opportunities.

The last thing anybody wants, therefore, is to suffer defeat in their curtain-raiser.

With that in mind, Bonus Code Bets have crunched the numbers to see how Portsmouth have fared in their past 10 opening day fixtures, and how their record compares to the rest of League One.
