Hereford are a famous name in FA Cup folklore with their victory over Newcastle in the 1971-72 one of the iconic moments of the competition. The club are now in the sixth tier of the National League North.

Their league position is only 14th but their recent form is good with seven victories and just one defeat in their last nine. Five of their last six in all tournaments have gone over 2.5 goals.

Portsmouth are also a side linked to the FA Cup having won the tournament twice as recently as 2008. They are going well this season in League One sitting in fifth position.

Their recent form has seen them draw each of their last three and lose just two of their last 11 in all competitions. Their road form has been a little shakier with two defeats in three.

Hereford vs Portsmouth: Match Stats

With three tiers between these sides it is hard to make a case for an FA Cup upset in this one. The hosts have showed good attacking intent in recent weeks while Portsmouth are always capable of letting in goals. Backing the visitors to win this and both teams to score looks the play.

The last time Colby Bishop was at this level was in 2018-19 when he was playing in the National League North. He scored 21 in that season and he has eight in League One this campaign. He looks value to score any time and we will take an interest in backing him to get two or more here.
