Daryll Hescott predicted five out of six of the correct scores from this weekend's action to win £5,000 plus the additional 'Get5' £2,000 bonus, only missing out on the £100k jackpot due to Aston Villa's shock win at Liverpool.

The winnings come as a much-needed boost for Daryl, who recently became unable to work after breaking his leg in a Sunday league football match so badly that he will never be able to play the game again.

The triple-break will prevent Daryll from plying his trade as a roofer for the foreseeable future, leaving him and his young family facing a difficult period and prompting his football team to search for ways to raise money to help him out.

However, as team-mate Karl Clarke explains, things are looking up thanks to Super 6.

He said: "We are delighted for him as the £7,000 will go a long way to helping him finance the next few months with his young family and also turn a bleak looking Christmas into a great one.

"Daryll has a good eye for score predictions, certainly better than his eye for a goal on a Sunday morning.

"In all seriousness though, it proves that good things do happen to the people who need it, and Daryll certainly is a great guy who deserves this."

Play Super 6 every week for the chance to win the £100k jackpot by correctly predicting six score, with £5000+ guaranteed for the person who scores the points points of each round.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
