Jack Anderson extends Fanscore advantage

Late goal costs Fanscore users dear on Tuesday night

16 August 2017

Brentford Fanscore leader Jack Anderson extended his advantage at the top of the the league to 267 points after Tuesday's 2-2 draw against Bristol City at Griffin Park.

Dean Smith's side were denied their first three points of the season as Bobby Reid struck in the eighth minute of added-time to secure a point for City. The Bristolians led inside five minutes through Josh Brownhill's deflected effort but second-half strikes from Ollie Watkins, who was the runaway Fanscore Man of the Match with 76 per cent of votes, and Neal Maupay looked to have secured the win at Griffin Park until Reid's intervention. 

That late goal cost Fanscore users plenty of points with 113 of the 132 entrants predicting a Brentford win and only eight going for a draw. Of those eight, five plucked the correct score of 2-2, earning themselves a 100 points bonus. 

It was a remarkable debut for Finn Peacock as he picked up the weekly prize with an outstanding score of 464 points, helped in no small part by his 350 point bonus for being within ten seconds of the first goalscorer time of 4:26. That score was more than 270 points better than Mark Allerton in second and Ryan Moran in third.  

His correct half-time score prediction on 1-0 to City helped overall league leader Jack Anderson through the 1,000 point barrier as he opened up a 267 point lead over Nick Outred in second with Mark Allerton a further 85 points behind in third.
