Premier Showdown - Sept 29-Oct 1

Tommy Smyth held off the challenge from the Rest of the World to go clear at the top, with Dale Johnson languishing down at the foot of the table. But can Tommy build on that and become the first to reach double figures? Looking to put the ROTW back level at the top this week is Neil Thomson. Neil tells us: "I live in Aberdeen, Scotland, and my team is Aberdeen FC. I work in the oil buisness as a service tech offshore in Austrila working 28 days away, 28 days at home. I love watching football and playing golf as much as possible - weather primitting... Thanks & Regards." Game on!

For each round of matches we invite someone to represent the Rest of the World and take on Press Pass' Tommy Smyth and ESPN journalist Dale Johnson in our predictions game.

Points are then awarded as follows:
• Three points for a correct result and scoreline
• One point for a correct result

After the weekend's scores are in and the Showdown result has been worked out, the winning pundit receives three points for their season's total. Should the challenger win, the total is added to the Rest of the World tally. In the case of a draw, the points are shared.

Three correct results for Neil on Saturday mean he surges to victory with two games to spare and gets the top score of the season to date too.
