Premier Showdown - Jan 30/31

Dale Johnson extended his lead at the top of the table with a convincing victory at the weekend. Now the ROTW must again regroup and tried and build a title challenge!

And for the next round of games, which takes place in midweek, we're making a first time visit to the tiny country of Guam!

Joining us is Brett Maluwelmeng, who lives in the town of Toto. And he's not any old Tom, Dick or Harry.... He's the number one goalie for the Guam national team. Now there's an accolade!

He explains: 'Hi, I'm from the beautiful Pacific island of Guam! My name is Brett and I'm a 21-year-old journalism student. I am a sports reporter for the local newspaper and editor of the university newspaper (ed - stay away from our jobs!).

'Most recently, I've made the jump from the Under-21 national team to becoming the No.1 goalkeeper for the senior men's team. My goal for our humble team (ranked last of 207 teams along with seven other teams) is to simply move up a solitary spot in the FIFA rankings.

'Why did I decide to challenge Dale and Tommy? Largely for the fun of it.

'After three years of waiting, I'm ready to see the mighty Manchester United return to the top of the table.'

Each week one of our readers, or an ESPNSoccernet Press Pass viewer, will get the chance to challenge our two experts. They, along with the challenger, will cast their eyes over weekend's top flight fixtures in England and predict how they think each game will turn out.

Soccernet's Premiership Editor, Dale Johnson, and Press Pass pundit Tommy Smyth take up the challenge from our team.

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 result has been worked out, the winning pundit will receive three points for their season's total. Should the challenger win, the total will be added to the 'Rest of the World's' tally. In the case of a draw, the points will be shared between those level on points.
