Forest result tough on Fanscore users

Only six fans guess correct outcome of Saturday's Griffin Park clash

13 August 2017

It was a low points-scoring week on Fanscore as Nottingham Forest took the spoils at Griffin Park after a seven-goal thriller on Saturday afternoon.

John Egan headed The Bees into a first-half lead but Forest hit back with two goals in three minutes just before the break. Andreas Bouchalakis grabbed his second two minutes into the second-half to make it 3-1. Andreas Bjelland gave Dean Smith's side late hope but Kieran Dowell's deflected effort made the points safe despite Neal Maupay's injury-time goal. 

None of the weekend's 148 entries guessed the correct score of 4-3 to the visitors, and it was the same story with the half-time score of 2-1 to Mark Warburton's side. More than 50 per cent of fans plucked for Lasse Vibe as the first goalscorer with only one fan correctly choosing John Egan. With 20 per cent of the vote, Kamohelo Mokotjo was the Fans' Man of the Match, ahead of Ollie Watkins and John Egan in second and third. 

The week’s top scorer was Tony Rivers with 291 points, 27 clear of David Barnes in second: Phyllis Inman rounding out the top three. Tony and David were both within 30 seconds of the Golden Goal time of 37:43, earning themselves a 200 point bonus. 

After his fantastic midweek prediction against AFC Wimbledon, Jack Anderson still leads the overall league table with 923 points, nearly 200 clear of Nick Outred in second and Mark Allerton in third. David Barnes' second place on Saturday sees him move up to fifth with Tony Rivers and Phyllis Inman in 13th and 15th respectively.
