Week Thirty-Four

It’s Week Thirty-Four of Season 34 and we had no payout this weekend all due to the World Cup qualifying rounds over the weekend. So we have another Rollover for £12 this weekend coming which will be our seventh of the season.
Well done to England on winning their fourth group game out of five and top of the Group F as they win 2-0 against Lithuania. Looks good for England in next years Russian World Cup.

100 MIDWEEK GOALS JACKPOT
We had two players that picked up the highest score in midweek with 3 goals each from Millwall and we had another six players that also picked up some more goals.
But we have added another players name to our list this week at last. DARYL NICHOLLS is still on a total of 109 goals this week and still in front. He has Celtic, Brighton and Newcastle. In second place on 101 goals is LUCIFER the Cat or John Wood. He picked up the goals from Accrington Stanley. His other teams are Brighton and Newcastle.The only other player to score 100 goals in midweek is ANDY EYLES. Andy has Manchester City, Newcastle and Rangers. So we once again are still waiting to see if  Daryl can beat our highest midweek score set by Paul Davey in our 2013/14 Season of a total of 132 goals.       

WEEKEND RESULTS
Due to the International games that have been played over the weekend, we only had the English League’s one and two plus a couple of our Scottish teams in action. The average score which is not surprising fell down to a flat zero.  We had Just twenty-three of our teams in action over the weekend in which eight of the teams failed to score any goals. So in that respect a very dull weekend here at Golden Goals.
The highest score over the weekend came from the English League One SCUNTHORPE and in League Two YEOVIL as both teams picked up the score of three goals each.
Scunthorpe won 3-2 at home to BRADFORD to take their goals tally to 73 while Bradford are on a total of 55 goals and they have now scored in all of their last thirteen games. Yeovil drew 3-3 away to Exeter and that now gives them a total of 47 goals.

LEAGUE ONE
We still have the top team here with SHEFFIELD UNITED still on top as they drew 1-1 away to OLDHAM. United are now on 83 goals while Oldham hit goal number 33.
In the Play-off zone we have SCUNTHORPE up to fourth place with BRADFORD moving down to fifth place. SOUTHEND have remained in sixth place after they won 2-0 away to AFC Wimbledon to take their goals total to 61.
Meanwhile MILLWALL lost 1-0 away to Swindon and that was their twelfth blank of the season and now just three goals in their last four games. BRISTOL ROVERS lost 1-0 away to Coventry to pick up their eighth blank of the season. MK DONS drew 0-0 away to PORT VALE to get their fifteenth blank of the season while Vale get their thirteenth.
PETERBOROUGH are now on 66 goals as they win 1-0 away to GILLINGHAM who picked up their ninth blank of the season.

LEAGUE TWO
We still have the top three teams here this weekend with DONCASTER still on top even though they lost 1-0 at home to second place PLYMOUTH. Doncaster picked up their fourth blank score sheet while Plymouth take their goals tally to 62. In third place is PORTSMOUTH as they win 2-1 at home to Newport. Portsmouth are now on a total of 65 goals.
In the play-off zone we just have LUTON again moving back down to sixth place after they lost 2-1 away to COLCHESTER. Luton are now on 69 goals while Colchester move their ‘s up to 56.
Meanwhile ACCRINGTON STANLEY are now on 56 goals as they drew 1-1 at home to Grimsby. LEYTON ORIENT picked up their sixteenth blank score sheet after they lost 3-0 away to Crawley Town.

SCOTTISH RESULTS
In the Scottish Championship, HIBERNIAN are now ten points clear of second placed FALKIRK as they beat them 2-1 at home. Hibernian are now on a total of 61 goals while Falkirk picked up goal number 53. In League One, STENHOUSEMUIR are still rock bottom of this league as they lost again 3-0 at home to Albion. Stenhousemuir have now had a total of twelve blank score sheets this season and now three games with out a single goal. PETERHEAD after a tow game dry spell for goals, are now on a total of 45 as they drew 2-2 at home to Stranraer.

JUNE TIGHE is now in her fourth weekend at the top as she picks up just one goal for the week.  June’s  single goal came at the weekend from Sheffield United.  Celtic and Newcastle had no game. June is now five goals clear of Stephen Stubbs who has remained in second place. June is still in 33rd place in our Champions League.

At the other end at that dreaded number 136 we have EMMA SAWYER back but only on goal difference. Emma picked up two goals from her combination from Hibernian as her other two teams, Charlton and Leicester City had no games. Emma has now had a total of five weeks at the bottom.
