How did the Potters draw at Bolton affect the Prediction League table
Matt Taylor's penalty, after Danny Collins crazy tackle, saw four of the fifteen prediction league players have a twenty five point haul to compensate for the two league ones the Potters had just lost, whilst another predicted the draw but not the right score.
On the other hand Buxtons picks and Northend Stokeys were doubly disappointed by the late equaliser as they had 1-0 Stoke wins as predictions and six other players all had even more reason to lament Jaaskelainen's brave point blank save from Lawrence in the last seconds as they had 2-1 victories.
Had the game finished 1-0 Buxton's Picks would now top the table, but instead sit 7th and the top three all took maximum points with the big movers being Ghostface, who flew from 10th to 6th at full time.
Penn United took themselves out of the bottom three and into 14th after a 2-2 prediction brought them points for the draw.
Heerweege Whammers led the table after last week but, after being the only player to predict a Potters defeat(0-1) they slipped to 4th, 21 points off top placed Peckham Pouncers.
Six players made no prediction and with no prediction for cup games, 'Beat The Manager' attentions turn to Saturdays big clash with Manchester United.
