Premier Showdown - May 2-4

Another victory for Dale Johnson last weekend, and it's now all but over for our intrepid band of challengers.

Dale leads the Rest of the World by 12 points with just four rounds left to play. It's a comfort zone of Burton Albion proportions.

Trying to keep the dream alive for the ROTW is Gary Brower who hails from Johannesburg in South Africa.

Gary tells us: "I am 22 years old and have been a Manchester United fan all my life. However my love for good football is not far behind.

"I am lucky enough to be able to watch all the Premier League games every week and also the games in Europe and around the world.

"I am working in the real estate business and I now have the oppotunity to find places for all the FIFA deligates that have come through!"

Let's get it on.

Soccernet's Premier League Editor, Dale Johnson, and ESPNsoccernet Press Pass pundit Tommy Smyth take up the test.

They, along with the challenger, cast their eyes over weekend's top flight fixtures in England and predict how they think each game will turn out.

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 receives three points for their season's total. Should the challenger win, the total is added to the 'Rest of the World's' tally. In the case of a draw, the points are shared between those level on points.
