Premier Showdown - Jan 1-2

Dale Johnson and Tommy Smyth continue to battle toe-to-toe for the Showdown title. After Dale's comeback to go top on Boxing Day, Tommy hit back straight away to return to the summit.

All hope is not lost for the Rest of the World. A run of wins will make it a three-way battle. But who can start off that run? Well it might just be William Schwartz who is from Manhattan, New York which is of course in the United States. Will William be able to start the new year with a bang?

William tells us: "I am a 14-year-old boy who lives in Manhattan, New York. I am one of very few people who follow soccer in my school, although I do have a couple of friends, who like myself, are avid Arsenal fans.

"I play many different sports, including soccer, baseball and basketball. I am also a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, which i have done since the age of six."

Let's check out those predictions.

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.

William bags a correct score from Wigan right in the last match of the round to go from last to first and claim a vital three points for the ROTW.

Table after Round 21
Tommy: 25.5
Dale: 24
Rest of the World: 13.5

Best week's total of season so far: 13, Bob McFarland.

So do you think you can beat the best of the best? Now is your chance to find out!
