Well a 93rd minute winner by the returning Josh O’Keefe saw a victory over AFC Hornchurch and ensured we are in the hat for the first round which is drawn tomorrow afternoon. But how did you get on in the prediction league? Well it was a DOUBLE POINTS round meaning 10 points were available for those who correctly guessed the 1-0 away win.
Of the 104 predictions we had in for the match, 69% went for a victory for the Bulls, 19% thought that we would be hosting the Urchins on Tuesday night and predicted a draw, the remaining 12% felt the recent poor form would continue and predicted a loss in Essex.
So who scored points? Well, amazingly 90 out of our 104 contestants for this round scored points! 3 predictors correctly guessed the 1-0 win and picked up the maximum 10 points, so a big congratulations to St Albans Bull, Mike From Mike & The Mechanics and for the second week running DannyHUFC. 69 further competitors predicted the away win and got at least 6 points for this. 25 of these competitors picked up a further 2 bonus points for predicting the correct margin of result (+1). Of those predicting a draw or loss, 17 picked up a couple of points each for predicting 1 HUFC goal, whilst only 1 predictor (LoopyLou) got the score the incorrect way around and picked up 2 bonus points as well.
What has this done to the table, well you can go look for yourself on the prediction league page and clicking on the preview table. But to summarise, we have a new leader, Terry Jackins leads the way on 53 points, this competitor leads from Kick in the Bulls on the number of correct score-lines as both are on the same number of points. In third place is former leader Barney Rubble who predicted a draw & subsequently lost the lead position. The top 20 are only separated by just 12 points and any of the top 10 can buy diflucan and take the top spot after Thursday’s game away to Salisbury which is the second part of our what has since become our Treble header of DOUBLE POINTS rounds*. For the second week running DannyHUFC was our biggest mover with 27 positions gained.
In the Monthly Table for October, Terry Jackins is also the new leader with 20 points from the 5 games, just 1 point ahead of ryanhufc & Barry the Hatchet and a further point ahead of Mike From Mike & The Mechanics & LoopyLou. A total of 37 competitors are still in line to win the October Monthly Prize.
Our current end of season Booby Prize Positions are filled by CROMER BULL (19th position), thethinbull & Newent Bull (17 points) & GemmaLou1511 (the least successful continuous competitor) – Will they still be in line for a prize come the end of the season, we shall see in the spring.
