Week 30 Results

AFC BOURNEMOUTH 3 MIDDLESBROUGH 1

Bournemouth enhanced their play-off bid and dealt a blow to Middlesbrough's top-six hopes with a hard-fought win. Nobody got this spot-on, but 21 did have the outcome with 13 going for a 2-1 in what was equally the weeks most predicted score.

BRISTOL CITY 0 STOKE CITY 2
Stoke get their first away win in twelve games, as they sentenced Bristol City to a seventh straight home defeat. Well done to medicine_man for being the only one to have this spot-on, and another 7 got the outcome.

CARDIFF CITY 0 NOTTINGHAM FOREST 1
Forest ended a run of six games without a win to put a huge dent in Cardiff's play-off aspirations. Only 2 got this spot-on, and 1 more had the had the outcome. 20 predicted a win for Cardiff.

DERBY COUNTY 2 LUTON TOWN 0
Derby moved eight points clear of the Championship relegation places as they put an end to a seven-game winless run. 4 had this spot-on, and a further 6 got the outcome.

MILLWALL 1 ROTHERHAM UNITED 0
Millwall boosted their slim Championship play-off hopes with a narrow win over 10-man Rotherham, who missed a late penalty. A far from unlucky 13 got this spot-on, in what was the weeks other most predicted score, and another 7 had the outcome.

PRESTON NORTH END 1 NORWICH CITY 1
Brad Potts got a 95th-minute equaliser as Preston denied runaway Championship leaders Norwich a 10th win in 11 games. Nobody had this spot-on, and only GOSBTS got the outcome. 23 predicted a win for Norwich.

QUEENS PARK RANGERS 3 COVENTRY CITY 0
Queens Park Rangers coasted to their biggest win of the season as they beat struggling Coventry. Well done to Lewis_1 for being the only one to get this spot-on, and a further 18 had the outcome

WATFORD 1 SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY 0
Watford beat struggling Wednesday, who were without boss Darren Moore after he tested positive for Covid-19, to record a sixth successive victory. Just the 2 had this spot-on, and another 23 got the outcome.

WYCOMBE WANDERERS 1 BLACKBURN ROVERS 0
Championship strugglers Wycombe beat out-of-form Blackburn to keep alive their slim hopes of survival. Nobody got this spot-on, though 4 did have the outcome. 20 predicted a win for Blackburn.

BARNSLEY 1 READING 1
Barnsley hit back to draw with fellow Championship play-off challengers Reading. 6 had this spot-on, and 6 also got the outcome.

BIRMINGHAM CITY 1 SWANSEA CITY 0
A 91st minute penalty wins it for Birmingham, after missing an ealier one. Swanea have now lost their last three games without scoring. 3 got this spot-on, and nobody had the outcome. 22 predicted a win for Swansea.

Eleven fixtures from the tough to predict Championship, so it was no surprise they produced a mixed bag of results. As it turned out the easy way to success would have been to go 1-0 all games, with that result producing another four this week, and making it 35 for the season now. That is an incredible 13 more than the next best result, with 0-0, 0-1 and 1-1 all having 22. Going 1-0 all games would have got you 15 points, but unitedwhites almost managed that in a more conventional way. He had three 3 pointers, the wins for Derby, Millwall and Birmingham, and four outcomes, to make him the weeks top scorer with a brilliant 13 points. Another member to have three 3 pointers was sevebalo, the wins for Derby, Millwall and Watford, to give him an excellent 10 points. There were eight members who got two 3 pointers, with the best performance from Sector4 and RSCOSWORTH, who both had the Millwall 1-0 and the Barnsley 1-1, and with four outcomes they got an excellent 10 points.

In the Premier The struggle for supremacy in this division continued, and it was the excellent week from sevebalo that sent him back to the top again, after three weeks away. Juist 2 points further back are basher2010 and mfb_cufc, who both had the Millwall 1-0 spot-on. With just 36 games left to the season, the title could be going to the final game before it is decided. Up a place into fourth after his excellent week is Sector4, Up three places, and into the top half for the first time this season, is RSCOSWORTH, after his excellent week. Two 3 pointers for Daniel, the 1-0 wins for Millwall and Watford, helped to ease him away from the relegation zone. At the bottom two 3 pointers for Tropical_Us, the Millwall 1-0 and the Barnsley 1-1, will give him hope of still escaping, as he reduces the gap to safety by 4 points.

In Division One There has been very little change in this league for a number of weeks now, and this week there was no change at all from last week. This means leader concordman takes another step to promotion by having the Millwall 1-0 spot-on. He still has a 15 point cushion back to third place ghughes11, but the brilliant week from unitedwhites has really enhanced his automatic promotion prospects, and cut his lead to 9 points. Fourth placed blueeagle is looking good for a play-off spot, but suddenly has a lot to do to make the automatics. The top six has had the same members for ten weeks running, and it shows little sign of changing, as BFG had two 3 pointers, the Millwall 1-0 and the Barnsley 1-1, and durham_exile also got two spot-ons, the wins for Derby and Millwall, as both improved their play-off hopes. Two 3 pointers also for Lewis_1, the Forest 1-0 to go with his good QPR 3-0 pick, to just about keep him in contention for the play-offs. The other member to get two 3 pointers this week was oxfcolu, who was another to have the Millwall 1-0 and the Barnsley 1-1. An unfortunate missed week for gsy163 has put him the wooden spoon mix as Pinault_Noir and medicine_man continue to pick up useful points.

THE TABLES (244 out of 280 played)

Week 29 Results

BLACKPOOL 2 PLYMOUTH ARGYLE 2

Ex-U's Joe Edwards got a 91st minute equaliser for Plymouth, as Blackpool take their unbeaten league run to 11 games. Nobody got this spot-on, and only 2 had the outcome. 23 predicted a win for Blackpool.

BURTON ALBION v FLEETWOOD TOWN POSTPONED Due to International call-ups for Burton

PETERBOROUGH UNITED 7 ACCRINGTON STANLEY 0
Peterborough roared to their biggest win since 2007, as they humiliated Accrington, who suffered their heaviest defeat since returning to the Football League in 2006. With two goals today Sammy Szmodics has now scored 12 in the league this season. Everybody predicted a win for Peterborough, but obviously nobody had it spot-on. 12 predicted Peterborough to win 2-1, and they made it the weeks most predicted score.

CARLISLE UNITED 1 CAMBRIDGE UNITED 2
Cambridge get a 90th minute winner. Earlier Paul Mullin opened the scoring with his 25th league goal of the season, surpassing a 35-year club record set by David Crown for goals scored over a campaign. That late Cambridge winner was good news for the massive 11 who got this spot-on, and the other 9 who had the outcome.

LEYTON ORIENT 2 OLDHAM ATHLETIC 1
Leyton Orient recorded their third win in a row. A magnificent 7 had this spot-on, and a further 10 got the outcome.

MORECAMBE 1 CHELTENHAM TOWN 0
Liam McAlinden's first-half goal earned promotion-chasing Morecambe a vital three points with their only shot on target. 4 got this spot-on, and 4 also had the outcome.

The BBC website were slow to say the Burton v Fleetwood game was off due to International calls, so that left us with just the five fixtures, but they produced a better week than any six game one this season. In fact if it wasn't for the late Plymouth equaliser, it would have been even better. As it was we had a decent 22 spot-ons, and a full house of outcomes from Peterborough, to give most people a reasonable week. There were six members who got two 3 pointers. The best of which came from ghughes11 and durham_exile, who both had the wins for Cambridge and Morecambe, and with two outcomes each, they share the title of the weeks top scorer with a very decent 8 points. The other four all got a decent 7 points. They were mfb_cufc, noah4x4 and RSCOSWORTH who all had the 2-1 wins for Cambridge and Leyton Orient, and unitedwhites, who got the wins for Orient and Morecambe. Best of those to have one 3 pointer was thrillseeker, who got the Orient 2-1 and three outcomes to give him a solid 6 points.
Week 30 will now be an 11 game one to make up for the postponement in Week 29. DON'T FORGET WEEK 30 IS GOOD FRIDAY

In the Premier There are now just 47 games left to the season, and this division continues to be the most conpetitive it has ever been, with everything to play for thrioughout the league. At the top there is only one point separating the top three. It is basher2010 who continues to lead, but for the second week running it is only on the most 3 pointer rule, now from mfb_cufc, who moves up a place into second, with sevebalo a point back in the final Charity Shield spot. A good week for noah4x4 moves him closer to the top three, and every chance of a title hat-trick. The solid week for thrillseeker moves him up a place, and back into the top half. At the bottom, the good week for RSCOSWORTH moves him out of the relegation zone again, as he is replaced by TheFatGooner, who drops into the bottom three for the first time this season. But with only one point separating 7th to 10th, just like the top, this couldn't be any closer. Not the sort of week Tropical_Us was looking for, and time is running out for him to escape now.

In Division One The 4 points for concordman this week means he has now got more points this season than in any of the previous five since he joined the Happy League. With 47 games left to the season, it goes to show what a good one he is having. He had his lead cut by 3 points, but promotion remains his to lose. A good week for unitedwhites maintains him in the other automatic spot, but for the second week running it is only on the most 3 pointer rule, as the top scoring performance from ghughes11 moves him back up to third, in what was the only change in this league. Even though he dropped a place blueeagle is still well in contention for the automatics, and looking good for a play-off spot if that fails. The top scoring performance from durham_exile consolidated his play-off place, but I am sure he would gladly give 3 of those points to his beloved U's if he could. Having the Morecambe 1-0 spot-on kept burnsieespana in touch of the top six. The only other member to get a 3 pointer in this league was oxfcolu, who was another to benefit from the Cambridge 2-1.

THE TABLES (233 out of 280 played)
(Tie-breaker: Most 3 pointers, and then the first to post)

at 21:03 20 Mar 2021

Week 28 Results

BRISTOL CITY 0 ROTHERHAM UNITED 2

Rotherham moved within three points of safety as they condemned Bristol City to a sixth successive home defeat. Nobody got this spot-on, and only 2 had the outcome. The other 25 predicted a win for City with 11 going for a 2-1 in what was the weeks most predicted score.

MILLWALL 1 MIDDLESBROUGH 0
Grant Hall's own goal delivered a blow to Middlesbrough's fading Championship play-off hopes, and saw Millwall pick up their third win in five games. 3 had this spot-on, and another 6 got the outcome.

GILLINGHAM 2 DONCASTER ROVERS 2
Doncaster's winless run extended to four games despite coming from two goals down, after Gillingham had scored twice in the first 4 minutes. Nobody got this spot-on, but 5 did have the outcome.

NORTHAMPTON TOWN 0 CREWE ALEXANDRA 1
Northampton plunged deeper into relegation trouble at the bottom of League One after losing at home to Crewe, and failing to have a shot on target. Sounds familiar. 4 had this spot-on, and another 8 got the outcome.

BARROW 3 CRAWLEY TOWN 2
Scott Quigley's dramatic 95th minute winner secured Barrow four straight Football League wins for the first time since 1968. Nobody got this spot-on, though 8 did have the outcome.

TRANMERE ROVERS 2 EXETER CITY 1
Tranmere scored two penalties to beat thier promotion rivals. A massive 10 had this spot-on, and 10 also got the outcome.

I thought this weeks fixtures were probaly the toughest ones we have had so far this season, and the results confirmed that impression. With 3 games failing to produce a 3 pointer, It was the Tranmere 2-1 that mainly made sure everybody got at least a point this week. Their popular victory achieved 40 of the weeks total 90 pouints. On such a tough week three members did well to have two 3 pointers. They were Daniel, who had the 1-0 wins for Millwall and Crewe, and gerry_us, who had the Crewe 1-0 and the Tranmere 2-1. They both also had one outcome, and share the honour of being the weeks top scorer with a very decent 7 points. Two 3 pointers also for concordman, who also had the wins for Crewe and Tranmere, to give him a decent 6 points. Best of those to get one 3 pointer was blueeagle. He had the Tranmere 2-1 and three outcomes to give him a decent 6 points. A special mention for Pinault_Noir on getting five outcomes.

In the Premier Just the Tranmere outcome for the top two, so basher2010 still leads sevebalo on the most 3 pointer rule. A couple of outcomes for mfb_cufc moves him a point nearer the top, but he doesn't really take advantage. Someone who take did take advantage of the top three faltering was current champ noah4x4. He had the Millwall 1-0 spot-on to move him up a place, but he still has work to do if he is to get that hat-trick of titles. In fact he is as near to the bottom three as the top three, with those in the bottom half of the table continuing to get good points. The top scoring performance from Daniel moved him up three places, and improved his chances of avoiding a quick return to Division One. The weeks other top scorer gerry_us remains second from bottom, but more importantly is now only 4 points from safety. With the way things are poised at the top and bottom of this division, I think we are in for an exciting final 52 games of the season.

In Division One Another two spot-ons for concordman, has helped to increase his lead to a season high 18 points. The bookies have already paid out on him being promoted. The fight for the other automatic spot could not be any closer. It is still unitedwhites holding on to thet position, but only on the most 3 pointer rule now, from blueeagle who moved up a couple of places thanks to his decent week. Even though he remains fourth ghughes11 closed to within a point of second, as he was another to have the Tranmere 2-1 spot-on. The final play-off places are occupied by BFG, and durham_exile, as the same six members have been in the top six for the past 8 weeks. The only other changes in this league has Lewis_1 moving up a place, and still with every chance of making the play-offs, and TheHappyGooner, who also go up a place, and moved off that unlucky 13 spot, that they had occupied for the previous 15 weeks.

THE TABLES (228 out of 280 played)
(Tie-breaker: Most 3 pointers, and then the first to post)




Week 29 Fixtures Time for an International break again, so we have 6 games from League's 1 & 2. An early warning. The Week 30 games will be on GOOD FRIDAY. As there are virtually no games on the Saturday

Week 27 Results

LEEDS UNITED 0 CHELSEA 0

Thomas Tuchel is unbeaten in all 12 of his games in charge of Chelsea in all competitions, the joint-longest unbeaten start by a manager in the club's history. Chelsea have conceded just two goals in their 10 Premier League games under Thomas Tuchel - no manager has conceded fewer in their first 10 games in charge in the competition's history. Nobody got this spot-on, and only 2 had the outcome. 21 predicted a win for Chelsea with 12 going for a 2-1 in what was the weeks most predicted score.

AFC BOURNEMOUTH 2 BARNSLEY 3
Barnsley came from behind to take their unbeaten run to 11 games. Again nobody had this spot-on, but 7 did get the outcome.

NOTTINGHAM FOREST 1 READING 1
Reading get a late equaliser to keep them firmly in the Championship play-offs. Forest's shirts had no sponsor name after Football Index entered administration. A devine 5 got this spot-on, and one more had the outcome.

WYCOMBE WANDERERS 1 PRESTON NORTH END 0
League 1 bound Wycombe bring an end to a losing run of 4 games with this victory. 4 had this spot-on, and another 2 got the outcome. 19 predicted a win for Preston.

IPSWICH TOWN 1 PLYMOUTH ARGYLE 0
Troy Parrott's fourth-minute goal was enough to secure Ipswich a win, as they moved into the League One play off places. A great 8 got this spot-on, and a furtherr 11 had the outcome.

MILTON KEYNES DONS 3 ACCRINGTON STANLEY 2
MK Dons get a 92nd minute winner after they had thrown away a 2 goal lead. Nobody had this spot-on, though 11 did get the outcome.

LEYTON ORIENT 1 SCUNTHORPE UNITED 1
Orient have only won one of their last 11 games after this latest draw. 3 got this spot-on, and 2 more had the outcome.

EXETER CITY 0 CHELTENHAM TOWN 1
Andy Williams came off the bench to snatch a 91st minute winner and give League Two leaders Cheltenham a win at their promotion rivals. 4 had this spot-on, and 4 also got the outcome.

OLDHAM ATHLETIC 2 CAMBRIDGE UNITED 4
Davis Keillor-Dunn gave Oldham a two-goal advantage, then missed a second-half penalty, as Cambridge fought back to get a deserved victory. Nobody got this spot-on, but 17 did have the outcome.

SOUTHEND UNITED 0 STEVENAGE 0
Sothend have now gone five games without a goal and have failed to hit the back of the net on seven of their last eight outings. Stevenage kept their sixth clean sixth in succession. 2 had this spot-on, and 3 more got the outcome.

GRIMSBY TOWN 0 COLCHESTER UNITED 0
Grimsby have now only one win in their last 15 games, and Colchester one in 18, with both also struggling to score goals, it is no surprise this was a bore draw. 3 got this spot-on, and another 4 had the outcome.

The theme of recent weeks has been mixed results, and that continued this week, with five games ending in draws, and three of them being bore ones. Then the wins for Barnsley, MK Dons and Cambridge failed to have a 3 pointer. It was left to the trusty 1-0 and 0-1 to give a boost to the results. The 0-0 took its score to 22 for the season, with only the 1-0 having more at 29. In the end we had a pretty good return of 29 spot-ons, and three members did well to have three 3 pointers. They were BFG and basher2010, who both had the Forest 1-1 and the 1-0 wins for Ipswich and Cheltenham, but with two outcomes, it is BFG who is the weeks top scorer with an excellent 11 points. One outcome for basher2010 gave him an excellent 10 points. That excellent score was also achieved by TheHappyGooner in being the other ones to get three 3 pointers, the 1-0 wins for Wycombe, Ipswich and Cheltenham. There were five members who had two 3 pointers, with best coming from GOSBTS by having the bore draws at Southend and Grimsby, and with four outcomes he also got an excellent 10 points.
Just 7 weeks and 58 games left to the season now.

In the Premier The 10 week reign at the top for sevebalo comes to an end, but only on the most 3 pointer rule, as basher2010 continued in his rich vein of form that has seen him get 42 points in the last 4 weeks, and deservedly take him to the summit. By having the Cheltenham 1-0 spot-on mfb_cufc moves a point nearer the top, even though he drops a place. After dropping into the bottom half for the first time this seaso last week, thrillseeker moved back into the top half again. There is suddenly an 8 point gap back to the fourth place. With those in the bottom half continuing to get good points, that included Blue4U2 and Daniel both getting two 3 pointers, the draws for Orient and Southend for the former, and the Wycombe 1-0 and the Orient 1-1 for the latter, anybody from that fourth place downwards could be in danger of being relegated.

In Division One By having the Ipswich 1-0 spot-on concordman was able to increase his lead to a decent 14 points. As we are fast approaching the end of the season, promotion is his to lose now. Back up into the other automatic spot after three weeks away is unitedwhites thanks to having the 1-0 wins for Wycombe and Ipswich spot-on. The top scoring performance from BFG moves him to a season high third place. But only on the first to post rule from ghughes11, who drops to a fourth place he last held in Week 16. The other play-off places are still held by blueeagle and durham_exile, with the latter having the Forest 1-1 and the Ipswich 1-0 spot-on. The excellent week for GOSBTS moved him up a couple of places to a season high eighth place, and within sight of the play-offs. In what has been a disappointing season for TheHappyGooner, they showed they still have what it takes with their excellent week.

Happy League 2020/21 Week 27 (of 34) - Deadline Saturday 13th March 12.30
at 00:04 7 Mar 2021

Week 26 Results

BURNLEY 1 ARSENAL 1

Burnley have drawn five consecutive home league games for the third time in their history, 3 got this spot-on, and nobody had the outcome. 21 predicted a win for Arsenal.

BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION 1 LEICESTER CITY 2
Daniel Amartey scored an 87th minute winner, his first goal since 2016, as Leicester came from behind to beat Brighton and boost their bid for Champions League qualification. A devine 9 had this spot-on, and a further 11 got the outcome.

BARNSLEY 1 BIRMINGHAM CITY 0
Daryl Dike smashed home the only goal of the game as Barnsley claimed a seventh straight Championship win. A magnificent 7 got this spot-on, and a further 18 had the outcome.

COVENTRY CITY 1 DERBY COUNTY 0
Maxime Biamou's clinical finish was enough to give Coventry victory and moved them six points clear of the Championship relegation zone. A sublime 5 had this spot-on, and 5 also got the outcome.

HUDDERSFIELD TOWN v CARDIFF CITY VOID This game was moved to Friday, so to be fair to those who had not posted their predictions, I had no option but to void this game. It ended as a bore draw, with no 3 pointers at time of game being made void.

NORWICH CITY 3 LUTON TOWN 0
Teemu Pukki grabbed his 19th and 20th goals of the season as runaway leaders Norwich got a seventh successive Championship victory. A sublime 5 got this spot-on, and another 21 had the outcome with 13 going for a 2-0 in what was equally the weeks most predicted score.

HULL CITY 2 BRISTOL ROVERS 0
Hull moved top of League One, as they win with their only two shots on target. A massive 13 had this spot-on in what was the weeks other most predicted score, and 13 also got the outcome.

WIGAN ATHLETIC 3 MILTON KEYNES DONS 0
Wigan gave their League One survival hopes a major boost with this comfortable victory. Nobody got this spot-on, but 9 did have the outcome.

COLCHESTER UNITED 0 NEWPORT COUNTY 2
Newport win for the first time at Colchester since 1973 and they had only scored one goal since 1974 and that was last year. Only 2 had this spot-on, and another 5 got the outcome.

OLDHAM ATHLETIC 0 SOUTHEND UNITED 0
Southend came closest to breaking the deadlock in a dismal bore draw. Nobody got this spot-on, though 4 did have the outcome.

With no fans at games, kick-off times can be changed at short notice, and that is what happened with the Huddersfield v Cardiff match. If everybody had posted their predictions before the Friday kick-off, the result would have still counted, but that was not the case, so Week 27 will now be an 11 game one. The nine games left were a bit hit and miss, but the wins for Leicester, Barnsley, Norwich and Hull produced some big points, and we ended with an impressive 44 spot-ons. In my 7 seasons of administrating the Happy League that is the most 3 pointers we have had in a week. Achieved in only nine games as well. It has been bit of a hit or miss season for basher2010, that has seen three blank weeks, but when he hits it is big, and he got four 3 pointers for the second time this season. They were the Burnley 1-1, and the wins for Coventry, Norwich and Hull, and with three outcomes, he is the weeks top scorer with a brilliant 15 points. That feat of getting four 3 pointers has also been achieved twice this season by sevebalo, and he came close to doing it for a third time, but had to settle for three, the wins for Barnsley, Norwich and Hull, and with three outcomes, he got an excellent 12 points. Two more members also got three 3 pointers. They were medicine_man, who must have taken his Happy Cup medication, to get the wins for Leicester, Hull and Newport, and four outcomes to give him an excellent 13 points, and oxfcolu, who got the wins for Leicester, Norwich and Hull, to get him a very decent 9 points. Eight members did well to have two 3 pointers, the best of which came from Pinault_Noir, who had the 2-0 wins for Hull and Newport, and five outcomes, to give him a superb 11 points.

In the Premier After leading on the most 3 pointer rule last week sevebalo has a 4 point lead this one, after his decent week. Having the wins for Leicester and Barnsley spot-on made sure mfb_cufc remained second, but only just as the brilliant performance from basher2010 moved back into the final Charity Shield spot for the first time since Week 4. Two 3 pointers for noah4x4, the 1-0 wins for Barnsley and Coventry, but he remains fifth. Two 3 pointers also for TheFatGooner, the wins for Barnsley and Hull, and he moves up a place. The only other change in this division saw Daniel move up a place. Even though the bottom three remains the same, there is only 4 points separating 6th to 10th.

In Division One Even though everybody got at least 5 points, there is no change in positions from last week in this league. Leader concordman got the Hull 2-0 spot-on, to help him increase his lead by a point. Having the Norwich 3-0 spot-on made sure ghughes11 remained in the other automatic spot, but unitedwhites and blueeagle both moved closer, thanks to getting the Leicester 2-1 spot-on. durham_exile remains in the final play-off place, but it is now only on the most 3 pointer rule from burnsieespana, after he had the wins for Leicester and Coventry spot-on. Further down the league two 3 pointers for GOSBTS, the Burnley 1-1 and the Barnsley 1-0, and gsy163 the wins for Barnsley and Hull, will give them hope of making a late play-off bid. But along with oxfcolu, they have shared positions 10th to 12th between them for the last 14 weeks. A welcome two 3 pointers for TheHappyGooner, the 1-0 wins for Barnsley and Coventry. They were needed as the good weeks for Pinault_Noir and medicine_man has added spice in the battle for the wooden spoon.

Week 25 Results


LUTON TOWN 3 SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY 2

Luton came from 2-0 down to win it with an 86th minute winner. Nobody got this spot-on, but 20 had the outcome with 12 going for a 1-0 in what was the weeks most predicted score.

MIDDLESBROUGH 1 CARDIFF CITY 1
Middlesbrough ended Cardiff's run of successive wins, but they have still got 21 points from the last 9 games since Mick McCarthy took over as manager. Only 2 had this spot-on, and 2 also got the outcome.

CHARLTON ATHLETIC 0 BLACKPOOL 3
Charlton's home horrors in League One continued as they were comprehensively beaten by Blackpool and had two players sent off in the process. Nobody got this spot-on, though 9 did have the outcome.

SWINDON TOWN 2 NORTHAMPTON TOWN 1
Swindon came from behind to beat their fellow League 1 strugglers. A magnificent 7 had this spot-on, and a further 14 got the outcome.

MANSFIELD TOWN 1 MORECAMBE 0
This result also ended a run of three successive defeats and a five-match winless run for Mansfield. A sublime 5 got this spot-on, and another 4 had the outcome.

WALSALL 2 BRADFORD CITY 1
Bradford moved to within 4 points of the play-offs after their fourth straight victory. A sublime 5 had this spot-on, and a further9 got the outcome.

After the hectic high scoring one last week, we were back into the calmer waters of a standard 6 game one this week. I thought they looked a tricky batch of games, so to get a total of 19 spot-ons was not a bad return. Two members did well to have two 3 pointers, they were RSCOSWORTH, who had the 2-1 wins for Swindon and Bradford, and Lewis_1, who got the Middlesbrough 1-1 and the Mansfield 1-0. They both had one outcome to give them a decent 7 points, and a share of the honour to be the weeks top scorer, along with basher2010, who did best of those who had one 3 pointer, the Mansfield 1-0, and four outcomes to give him those decent 7 points.
The Mansfield 1-0 means that result is now a clear leader as the one we have had most of this season with 25. That is 6 more than the next best 0-1.

In the Premier Having the Mansfield 1-0 spot helped to keep sevebalo top for the ninth week running, but it is only on the first to post rule, as mfb_cufc closed in, thanks to getting the Swindon 2-1 spot-on. Having the Bradford 2-1 spot made sure Sector4 remained in the final Charity Shield spot. Up two places into fourth is basher2010, after his top scoring performance. A struggle for 3 pointers means noah4x4 drops a place to fifth. Despite getting the Swindon 2-1 spot-on thrillseeker also drops a place to sixth. The lowest position he has been in all season. Also benefiting from having the Swindon 2-1 spot-on are TheFatGooner and Blue4U2, and along with Daniel, who had the Bradford 2-1 spot-on, their 5 points mean they remain unchanged from last week. The good weeks for RSCOSWORTH and gerry_us keeps them in the bottom three, but moves them that bit nearer to safety. At the bottom Tropical_Us suddenly has a bit to do if he is to escape being relegated.

In Division One Four outcomes for the leader concordman, but his lead is cut by 2 points, thanks to ghughes11 having the Swindon 2-1 spot-on, who in turn has opened a 7 point gap to the pursuers. The play-off places remain the same as last week, with the only change being BFG moving up a place, thanks to getting the Mansfield 1-0 spot-on. Having the Bradford 2-1 spot-on, has moved burnsieespana to within 3 points of the play-offs, and the top scoring performance from Lewis_1 has moved him up a place, and every chance of making the play-offs. The rest of the league remains the same as last week.

THE TABLES (202 out of 280 played)
(Tie-breaker: Most 3 pointers, and then the first to post)

BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION v LEICESTER CITY (20.00)

Week 24 results

BURNLEY 0 WEST BROMWICH ALBION 0

Burnley fail to beat 10-man West Brom. The last two occasions West Brom have received a red card and avoided defeat in a Premier League game have both been against Burnley. Nobody got this spot-on, and only Blue4U2 and Tropical_Us had the outcome

LIVERPOOL 0 EVERTON 2
Everton earned their first derby win anywhere since 2010, and their first win at Anfield since 1999. Liverpool have now lost four successive home matches for the first time since 1923. Again nobody had this spot-on, and just concordman and Pinault_Noir got the outcome.

FULHAM 1 SHEFFIELD UNITED 0
Ademola Lookman's goal boosted Fulham's hopes of Premier League survival. They remain 18th but have cut a 10-point gap to Newcastle in 17th, to just three points inside a week. A massive 10 got this spot-on, and a further 8 had the outcome.

COVENTRY CITY 2 BRENTFORD 0
Coventry ended a five-game winless run, as this loss means Brentford, who had gone 21 games without defeat, have now lost three times in six days. No points for anybody from this game, as 25 predicted a win for Brentford, and the other one predicted a draw.

MILLWALL 0 WYCOMBE WANDERERS 0
Draw specialists Millwall extended their unbeaten run to eight Championship matches after being forced to settle for a point against league 1 bound Wycombe. Well done to Pinault_Noir for being the only one to get this spot-on, and nobody had the outcome. 25 predicted a win for Millwall with 13 going for a 2-0 in what was the weeks most predicted score.

NOTTINGHAM FOREST 1 BLACKBURN ROVERS 0
Brice Samba made a superb penalty save from Blackburn's Adam Armstrong to ensure Alex Mighten's first-half strike was enough to earn Forest victory. A sublime 5 had this spot-on, and another 10 got the outcome.

QUEENS PARK RANGERS 2 AFC BOURNEMOUTH 1
Todd Kane snatched a late winner as QPR clinched their fourth consecutive Championship victory. Well done to Blue4U2 for being the only one to get this spot-on, and 3 more had the outcome. 20 predicted a win for Bournemouth.

BURTON ALBION 0 SUNDERLAND 3
Sunderland moved back into the League One play-off places with a crushing win over 10-man Burton. 4 had this spot-on, and a further 17 got the outcome.

GILLINGHAM 2 BRISTOL ROVERS 0
John Akinde scored twice and also missed a penalty in Gillingham's hard-fought victory, as Rovers suffered their first defeat under interim manager Tommy Widdrington. 3 got this spot-on, and another 17 had the outcome.

IPSWICH TOWN 0 OXFORD UNITED 0
Ipswich and Oxford fought out a bore draw but the home side will be frustrated that they failed to convert some gilt-edged chances. Nobody had this spot-on, but 5 did get the outcome.

MILTON KEYNES DONS 4 NORTHAMPTON TOWN 3
MK get an 88th minute winner, as they twice came from behind in this 7 goal thriller. Not a surprise there was no 3 pointer, though 19 did have the outcome.

WIGAN ATHLETIC 1 LINCOLN CITY 2
Lincoln cemented their position at the top of League One, as they came from behind to win. A superb 6 had this spot-on, and a further 14 got the outcome.

BARROW 1 MORECAMBE 2
Morecambe were the only side in the top nine other than leaders Cambridge to win on Saturday as they ended their frustrating four-game winless run to jump from eighth to fourth. A superb 6 got this spot-on, and another 11 had the outcome.

CHELTENHAM TOWN 0 BRADFORD CITY 2
Cheltenham's eight-match unbeaten league run came to an end as Bradford made it 7 wins in 11 for interim bosses Mark Trueman and Conor Sellars. Nobody had this spot-on, and just sevebalo and burnsieespana got the outcome. 22 predicted a win for Cheltenham.

CRAWLEY TOWN 1 COLCHESTER UNITED 0
Substitute James Tilley struck a 93rd-minute winner for Crawley as they ended a nine-game wait for a home league win. Colchester are now winless in 12 games. In the present climate has any manager got a record like that without being sacked? Only mfb_cufc got this spot-on, and 10 more had the outcome.

NEWPORT COUNTY 0 FOREST GREEN ROVERS 2
Goals from Josh Davison and Jamille Matt moved Forest Green to within a point of League Two leaders Cambridge. Newport, who have just one win in 13 games, failed to threaten throughout. The final one this week with no 3 pointer, but 5 did get the outcome.

The freezing frustrations of last week have melted into a fantastic 16 game one this week. This is likely to be the last time we have this many games in a week, as it has been suggested we have a midweek 6 to make up for postponed games, and I think it is a good idea. With virtually no matches being lost to the pandemic, and spring on the way, hopefully there will not be many more postponed games this season. With 16 games there was a chance the record score of 18 in a week could be beaten. Well considering there was 7 games without a 3 pointer, and also 8 that produced virtually no points, two members gave it good shot, and fell just short, but still got a brilliant 15 points each, and a share of being the weeks top scorer. They were gerry_us, who was the only one this week to get four 3 pointers, the wins for Forest, Sunderland, Lincoln and Morecambe, and three outcomes, and also Blue4U2, who had three 3 pointers, the wins Fulham, QPR and Morecambe, and six outcomes. Three other members also got three 3 pointers, they were concordman who had the wins for Fulham, Gillingham and Morecambe, and ghughes11 who got the wins for Forest, Gillingham and Morecambe. They both also had four outcomes to give them an excellent 13 points. Also Daniel who had the wins for Fulham, Forest and Lincoln and three outcomes to give him an excellent 12 points. There were five who got two 3 pointers, the best of which was mfb_cufc, who had the 1-0 wins for Fulham and Crawley, and seven outcomes, to give him a useful 13 points.

In the Premier A decent seven outcomes were enough for sevebalo to remain top for the eighth week running. Back up into second is mfb_cufc after his good week. A decent seven outcomes also for Sector4, and he is in the final Charity Shield spot. Even though noah4x4 is struggling for 3 pointers, he remains well in contention in fourth. An impressive eight outcomes for thrillseeker but he remains fifth. Up a place into sixth is basher2010, as he did best of those of got one 3 pointer this week, the Forest 1-0. Last week Blue4U2 dropped three places. He redressed the balance this week by moving up three places with his top scoring performance. The excellent week for Daniel was not enough to stop him droping a place. Also down a place and back into the relegation zone is RSCOSWORTH, despite getting two 3 pointers, the wins for Fulham and Morecambe. The top scoring performance from gerry_us only moved him up a place, but 5 weeks ago it was 17 points to safety, now it is only 5.

In Division One Another excellent week for concordman has seen him stretch his lead back to a decent 14 points. After three weeks away, ghughes11 moves back into the other automatic spot, thanks to his excellent week. That means unitedwhites drops a place to third, despite having the Lincoln 2-1 spot-on. The Lincoln 2-1 spot-on also for blueeagle and he remains fourth. Two 3 pointers for durham_exile, the wins for Gillingham and Sunderland, though he remains fifth. The final play-off spot is still held by BFG, and he was another to get the Sunderland 3-0 spot-on. It is a 6 point gap to the nearest pursuer burnsieespana, who along with wessex_exile, both moved up a place. After a quite few weeks for 3 pointers, GOSBTS got two again this week, the wins for Sunderland and Lincoln, to take him up a couple of places. A seasons best score for Pinault_Noir that included having the Forest 1-0 spot-on, to go with his good Millwall 0-0 pick.
