Premier Showdown - Jan 19-21

A comfortable win for Darius and the Rest of the World last weekend as he claimed a crucial three points in the pursuit of Tommy Smyth. Joining us this weekend is Brian Gill who comes from Canada. Brian tells us: "I'm a 51-year-old father of two teenage girls. This is how I get away from the drama. Originally from Reading in Berkshire and now living east of Toronto in Canada. Always been a Biscuitman. I guess it's now a loyal Royal. I'm constantly surrounded by NHL hockeyheads that call me soccerman. Beat the drop, Reading." Game on!

For each round of matches we invite someone to represent the Rest of the World and take on Press Pass' Tommy Smyth and ESPN journalist Dale Johnson in our predictions game.

Points are then awarded as follows:
• Three points for a correct result and scoreline
• One point for a correct result

After the weekend's scores are in and the Showdown result has been worked out, the winning pundit receives three points for their season's total. Should the challenger win, the total is added to the Rest of the World tally. In the case of a draw, the points are shared.

Dale claims a much-needed victory, but there's a lot of work to do to get back in the game.
