IT was a good night in the Betfred Cup and hopefully we get more of the same on Saturday.
Well done to all Friday's winners and a special mention for @hunter who has been in great form and is picking up followers.

Apart from the Betfred Cup there's not too much on the go – we have Gent v Mechelen in the Belgian Super Cup, some matches in Scandinavia and loads of friendlies.
I don't like betting on friendlies but it's difficult to turn down West Ham at 21-20 against Newcastle in the third-fourth play-off for the Asian Trophy in Shanghai.
Steve Bruce will be watching but not taking charge of his new team who were hammered 4-0 by Wolves in the semis. The Hammers were well beaten 4-1 by Man City but I watched some of that match and they played all right against the treble winners.
Both teams will make changes and are allowed 10 changes so there's a risk but West Ham should win it and I'm going for them as a Super Single. If they are successful – and it's not looking good at half-time – I'll add another one from the Betfred Cup but in the meantime my only bet from those games in a treble on Hibs to beat Alloa, Inverness to beat Raith and Stranraer to beat Berwick.
I've posted a separate Betfred Cup preview here. And I've had a twoball treble from day 3 of The Open.
