Identify any points of discontinuity, and determine (giving reasons) if they are removable, infinite, or jump discontinuities.

When I graphed this function on my calculator, I found that there was definitely a jump discontinuity at x=4. There is, as far as I can see, one more discontinuity at -1, it looks as though it might be an infinite discontinuity since it is a vertical asymptote. Is this correct?
