Cheffy007 and myself join Barlow Boy in the last 8.

Brighouse White "£92" loses to Cheffy007 "£159.50"

MOT1964 "£0" lost to Selby White "£253.36"


With a deficit of only £6.25 Big Jon still looks good for the play off.

Brighouse White deficit £67.50 - could still make the play off

MOT1964 deficit £253.36 - can concentrate on the league.

Thanks BW I think going first is a bit of a disadvantage. Hoping for another away draw in the next round.

Well done SW, I was garbage, but full marks to you for predicting all four games correctly.

My bets for this Sat, Selbs:

£25 draw @ 12/5 (Bournemouth/Everton)
£40 win @ 7/5 (Fulham to beat Burnley)
£15 draw @ 12/5 (Blackburn/Brentford)
£20 draw @ 13/5 (Bolton/Sheff Utd)

Tough fixtures to predict them, Selbs. Thanks. Good luck, KK :)
