I’M £25 away from completing my £25 to £250 challenge and today could be the day.
In reality I’m looking at a 1-9 shot and it’s amazing how hard it is to find one. My first thought was to go over 0.5 match goals in an FA Cup game but I needed two for a 1-9 price.
So I’ve decided instead to go with Newport not to lose their FA Cup replay at home to Alfreton. The Graham Westley factor was in evidence again on Saturday when his side ended Carlisle’s unbeaten run and Newport haven’t lost in five under their new boss and should win here.
Anyone who’s been on this since the start should consider taking the money and starting again – especially if they’re going to stop after reaching £250.
Those still doing challenges I wish you luck – this is the place to do them so let’s see what you’ve got.
Newport not to lose (7.45pm)
(1-9, Stan James)
