Steve Rimington, from Horsforth, was on course to become the fourth jackpot winner of the free-to-play football prediction game in the last 12 months when Leeds conceded a late spot-kick in their opening Sky Bet Championship clash.

Steve had already correctly matched the results involving Derby v Rotherham (1-0), Middlesbrough v Birmingham (2-0), Nottingham Forest v Blackpool (2-0), Watford v Bolton (3-0) and Wigan v Reading (2-2) and had picked a 1-0 win for the Lions against Leeds.

However, with time running out, Millwall were awarded a penalty and Shaun Williams slotted home from the spot.

Despite missing out on the jackpot Steve still netted himself a £3,000 consolation prize, sharing the weekly prize with David Hoey from High Wycombe, who also got five correct scores.
