Charlton boss Lee Bowyer expects Portsmouth to reach the League One play-off final – despite trailing 1-0 from their semi-final first leg.
The Black Cats won at the Stadium of Light on Friday.
But Bowyer does not expect that slender advantage to be enough.
“I watched the other game,” said Bowyer after the Addicks’ 2-1 win at Doncaster Rovers on Sunday afternoon. “I was a bit disappointed. It wasn’t the best game, was it?
“It’s two teams slogging it out, a bit of a battle. But I’ve got to say I’d fancy Portsmouth now.
“I’ll go to the game, I’ll be at the game Thursday.”
