It was oh so close to landing the acca again on New Years Day. MK Dons ran riot over Cambridge with a 6-0 win, Bury came back from an early goal down to take care of Crewe 3-1, while Portsmouth won by the odd goal in 3 against AFC Wimbledon.
As the final scores started to come in from around the country, it just needed Lincoln to hold on to their slender advantage over Port Vale. Alas a 90th minute Vale equaliser foiled the bet:-(
The betting bank now stands at -£86.10.
Attention switches to the FA Cup this weekend , where 3 of this weeks selections come from, while I give Colchester 1 last chance to get it right at home in League 2. The WBA game is a 12:30 kick-off, so hopefully the bet is still alive by the time the other matches kickoff at 3:00pm.
Selections for 5th January 2019
English League Two – Colchester to beat Notts Co
English FA Cup – WBA to beat Wigan – 12:30 kickoff
English FA Cup – Brentford to beat Oxford
English FA Cup – Derby to beat Southampton
