Super 6: The ultimate football knowledge test
For most, Super 6 is just a fun free-to-play game as part of Saturday's football ritual, but for one man it has proved the saviour of Christmas.
Fancy yourself as a tipster? Play Super 6 here.
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 Daryll, 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."
Daryll said: "It couldn't have come at better time given that I'm self-employed and likely to be unable to work well in to the New Year."
