Bonus HBI Shares ++ First Goal Scorer + Correct Score Comp. No 390: EFL Cup - Leicester v Brighton - October 27th 2021 - 7500 + 5000 Sports Tokens
So in last night's Carabao cup games, two out of three ended in penalties with Chelsea holding their nerve to put out a brave Southampton and Sunderland beating QPR.
I'm not going to talk about it
Tonight we see the other final 5 games in this round of 16 including Manchester City and Liverpool, but looking down the fixtures, I chose this one as being a possibly great game and difficult to predict...
I'm not going to talk about it
Despite the differing league positions, I'd suggest that both Leicester and Brighton are playing at a very similar level of football this season.
Leicester had a good win at the weekend against Brentford to add a little solidity to their league position which was a very hard fought win but their form still seems to be consistently inconsistent!
If Brenden Rogers decides not to tinker with that team, then another quality performance from Belgium midfielder, Youri Tielemans could be the key to stopping Brighton play their free flowing game.
We all saw Brighton get destroyed by City at the weekend and to bookend this midweek cup game, they will be facing Liverpool next weekend so I'd thing that Graham Potter will be resting key players and trying to rebuild shattered confidence before Saturday.
The aim of European football next season trumps winning the league Cup so I fully expect to see a second string turning out for Brighton tonight!
Prediction: Leicester 4 : 1 Brighton - First goalscorer: Vardy
Simply write the name of the FIRST GOALSCORER and the CORRECT SCORE as a comment. The competition closes 5 minutes before kick-off which is 19.45 BST
The Small Print
In the first goalscorer competition, own goals do not count. In the correct score competition, it's the score after 90mins. Extra time and penalties do not count and the pot for each competition will roll over if there is no winner. If more than one person chooses the same first goal scorer or correct score, the prize is shared, and everyone gets a little upvote! It seems I also need to add, one entry per person. Don't forget the new rule that only people with a rep of 50 or above are eligible to enter unless they have been approved. The bonus will be added to any winnings ONLY if Leeds United win and/or Man U lose and all pay-outs will never exceed 50% of post-pay-out. Other bonuses are paid out at my discretion.
I still don't want to talk about it
And the winners were...

The random HBI shares, strangely all went to the people who predicted a win for Leeds! What a coincidence and that was, so an HBI share each are on their way to my BFFs, @anderssinho, @jersteemit, @yeckingo1 and @hirohurl
That's your lot for today! First goal-scorer pot is growing nicely but are we going to see an influx of Vardy picks tonight?
As always, best wishes and thanks for playing along guys.
