Erskine Cup Round 2 Preview

For the fourth round in a row, the crowd wasn't too wise last week with just three winners and a loss of 4.56 points bringing the season's total into the red by 2.76 points. This week again sees a bias to the home teams, with Newcastle United (v Liverpool) perhaps a little surprisingly, the nap selection. The crowd like the draw in the West London derby between Chelsea and Queens Park Rangers and the Midlands derby between Leicester City and West Bromwich Albion.  West Ham United are the sole away selection at Stoke City (not a derby) while lay Southampton at Hull City (also not a derby) is the only other non-home decision.

The second round of group games in the Erskine Cup is this weekend, and a few dustbins are out there to be beaten. Daily 25 is still changing nappies, Talkies Tips has missed the deadline before and appears to have done so again, Betcast is sitting this one out and we will be missing @ValueBankFooty and his accumulators.

Making up for all those absentees is the news that Skeeve has a woken from his summer slumber, and is in action with seven FTL selections. With Skeeve one of the four Bounty Boys, there will be a lot of interest in his numbers.

Paul Watson is not distracted by Erskine Cup action, dwelling in 33rd place as we enter the weekend, but he is attempting to steal the limelight with the big accumulator of the week going for a five-fold featuring  Chesterfield, AFC Bournemouth, Celtic, Arsenal and Grimsby Town.

Here are the Erskine Cup match-ups again:
Good luck this weekend to everyone but Trend to end, Abromo, Club Havana and Daily 25.

I would award a walk over in March ups where there is a no show. Two walk overs is a draw.
