Week 5 Results
BARNSLEY 1 WALSALL 1
An 88th minute equaliser for Walsall means both sides remain unbeaten this season. That late goal was good news for the 3 who got this spot-on, and the 2 who had the outcome. The other 27 members predicted a win for Barnsley with an incredible 18 going for a 2-1, in what was the weeks most predicted result.
GILLINGHAM 0 AFC WIMBLEDON 1
Joe Pigott's fifth goal of the season was enough to earn AFC Wimbledon their first league victory since the opening game of the campaign. Nobody had this spot-on, and only 2 got the outcome. There were 23 who predicted a win for Gillingham.
SUNDERLAND 1 FLEETWOOD 1
Sunderland remain unbeaten in the league despite going behind for the fifth time this season. Well done to Stupid_Gooner for being the only one to get this spot-on, especially as the other 31 members predicted a win for Sunderland.
NORTHAMPTON 1 CHELTENHAM 3
Cheltenham claimed just their second victory of the season, as Northampton remain with just the one, against you know who. No points for anybody here, with 25 predicting a victory for Northampton.
OLDHAM 0 NEWPORT 1
Newport won their second away game on the bounce as a single goal was enough to see off Oldham. Well done to thrillseeker for being the only one get this spot-on, though 7 did have the outcome.
STEVENAGE 1 MACCLESFIELD 0
Danny Newton scored his first goal of the season as Stevenage beat a Macclesfield side still without a win this season. There were 5 who had this spot-on with a further 22 getting the outcome.
Another week where all the home teams were well supported, with a number of members going for all home wins, but only Stevenage read the script, and saved the week from being a complete disaster. Their 1-0 win produced 37 of the weeks 63 total points achieved, and saved 16 members from having a blank week. On such a tough week RSCOSWORTH did well to be the only one to have two 3 pointers, the Barnsley 1-1 and the Stevenage 1-0, and he is the weeks top scorer with a decent 6 points. Best of those who had one spot-on was Stupid_Gooner, who was far from that with the good Sunderland 1-1 pick, and two outcomes gave him a very good 5 points.
A reminder of a rule. If any member post two lots of predictions in a week, I will go with the first ones posted unless it is stated the second ones are to replace the first ones. In that case there is no need for a second lot, just edit the first ones please.
In the Premier That top scoring effort from RSCOSWORTH enabled him to increase his lead at the top by a further 2 points. By having the Barnsley 1-1 spot-on gsy163 made sure the deficit was not any more than 4 points. Another to benefit by getting the Stevenage 1-0 spot-on was Tropical_Us, and he moves back into the final Charity Shield spot. A horse named Noah And The Ark won at 14/1 today, but our noah4x4 didn't have the same luck, and he drops out of the top three for the first time this season. That Stevenage win gave TheHappyGooner a "mrhappy 1-0", and moves them up two places. Also going up two places is thrillseeker thanks to that good Newport 1-0 pick, that gave his first 3 pointer this season.
In Division One After his blistering start to the season, just the two outcomes for Colukev, but it was still enough to increase his lead by a point. With the five behind him all getting one point each ghughes11 takes advantage, and having the Barnsley 1-1 spot-on, moves him up five places, and back into the play-off spots. The other main mover in this league was Daniel, and getting the Stevenage 1-0 spot-on helped him go up four places.
After missing his fourth week in a row i have no option but to expel Colu_Lancahireexile from all Happy League competitions. Again I hope that nothing serious has happened to them, and they are welcome to come back again in future. I don't have a problem with anybody dropping out, but please let me know if you don't want to carry on, rather than me having to expel you.
