Goal Rush: 6th January

A preview on this weekend's Goal Rush with a chance to win our £1 Million Top prize!

League Two leaders Luton have plenty of goals in them and can trouble the net when they take on Newcastle at St James’ Park. Struggling in the relegation zone of the Championship two of the lower scoring teams in that division, Birmingham and Burton, meet for what could be a very cagey affair. The third round of the FA Cup makes up the majority of fixtures in our Goal Rush competition this weekend.

Who’s Hot:

6 - Brentford v Notts County

Eight of their last ten meetings have featured both teams scoring, five of those games finished in 1-1 score draws.

Brentford are unbeaten in their last nine home matches and they only failed to score in one of those games, a 0-0 draw with Barnsley in mid-December.

Notts County beat Bristol Rovers 4-2 and Oxford City 3-2 in the last two rounds of the FA Cup.

10 - Doncaster v Rochdale

After a 1-1 draw Rochdale won on penalties when they met Doncaster in the League Trophy competition in November. Doncaster won 2-0 in their League One meeting last Friday.

Doncaster beat Ebbsfleet 6-2 and Scunthorpe 3-0 to reach this round of the FA Cup.

A 4-0 win over Bromley and another 4-0 win over Slough got Rochdale to this stage of the competition.

13 - Ipswich v Sheffield Utd

Five of their last nine meetings had both teams score. Sheffield won 1-0 at home when they met for their first league encounter this season in October.

Ipswich come into this after back to back defeats of 2-1 to Derby and 4-1 to Fulham.

Sheffield have only drawn a blank in one of their last five on the road, they drew the last two 2-2 and 1-1 visiting Aston Villa and Derby.

16 - Newcastle v Luton

Newcastle have only won three of their fifteen matches over the past three months. One of which was a 1-0 victory at Stoke on Monday.

League Two leaders Luton are that divisions top scorers this season with sixty-two goals in twenty-six league matches.

20 - Watford v Bristol City

Bristol City had a narrow 3-2 win visiting Watford in the League Cup competition back in August.

Watford have only failed to score in two of their last twelve matches. They were beaten 3-1 visiting Manchester City on Tuesday night.

Who’s Not:

2 - Birmingham v Burton A

Burton came from behind to score two second-half goals and win 2-1 over Birmingham in their league encounter in August.
