With less than three days remaining to the start of the season its time for the return of the Prediction League, ran by Dave Randerson. The Prediction League has been running on the Facebook page since the 2013/2014 season and last season saw 98 people take part, with Liam Bowser (263 points) taking the crown by a clear 20 points with Hayley Buck (243 points) and Yvonne Cook (240 points) in second and third.
This year it returns with 7 different teams in the mix but the rules remaining exactly the same:
You score 3 points for predicting the exact score (e.g. Doncaster 2-1 Leeds United) and 1 point if you predict the correct outcome but not the score (e.g. home win).
It’s as simple as that.
New to the League this year will be the additional table being hosted on the DRSG site so you can instantly review your position. All predictions will still need to be made via the thread on the Facebook Page.
The DRSG would like to thank Dave Randerson for his dedication to delivering this to Rovers fans every week. His work is one of the important forces that keeps the Doncaster Rovers Facebook page the Number 1 Rovers forum on the internet.
The opening fixtures are:
Burton Albion v Scunthorpe United
