in Sports Talk Social2 months ago

So the magic of the cup never materialised for Exeter yesterday and it turned into a fairly straightforward day at the office for Wednesday despite their current Covid, managerial and form crisis.

A lot of us were hoping that they would be the upset of the day but that honour went to Chorley who beat Derby 2-0, couldn't happen to a nicer team!

We are staying with FA Cup action today and NO, we are not using Leeds as the featured game but instead travelling to Wales for another potential upset as League 2 Newport host Premier League strugglers, Brighton...

@nathen007's Prediction

I keep looking at this and I can't see any feasible way Newport will win. I would suggest that Brighton will not be playing their strongest team, but even so, they should have enough to take this game.
I will though, suggest a draw after 90 minutes. Not just any draw but a super boring no-score draw. Brighton aren't the most exciting team at the best of times so I can see them making hard work of this and needing extra-time and possibly penalties to put it to bed.

Simply write the name of the FIRST GOALSCORER and the CORRECT SCORE as a comment. Competition closes 5 minutes before kick-off which is 19.45 GMT.

The Small Print
In the first goalscorer competition, own goals do not count. In the correct score competition, it's the score after 90mins. Extra time and penalties do not count and the pot for each competition will roll-over if there is no winner. If more than one person chooses the same first goalscorer or correct score, the prize is shared and everyone gets a little upvote! It seems I also need to add, one entry per person. Don't forget the new rule that only people with a rep of 45 or above are eligible to enter unless they have been approved. The bonus will be added to any winnings ONLY if Leeds United win and/or Man U lose and all payouts will never exceed 50% of post payout. Other bonuses paid out at my discretion.

And the winners were.....

No one! No one (including myself) fancied Wednesday's chances and so both first goalscorer and correct score rollover until today.
