Okay for those who haven't yet entered their forecasts, I've just checked out the Barnet numbers:

Most poplar scoreline is 2-1
Most popular goalscorer is Doidge, although six players were nominated
Highest attendance forecast is 2972 and lowest is 1850.

Hope that helps in planning a forecast.

I've left the calculations to you this time OTC as I'm unsure as to whether your using the 90 minute score (as bookmakers do) or the final score

I'll do it in morning.
Yes the scores will be on 90 minutes. I had a nightmare during game when I realised that I had not covered that exact eventuality.

Blimey, that's a pleasant sight at the top of the league.

Having predicted defeat at Colchester I hope I'm not there this time next week.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
