A correct result is worth ONE point, while a correct score earns THREE points.

Last week, Lawro took on IBF super-middleweight boxing champion and big Nottingham Forest fan Carl Froch.

Lawro got five results right, with two perfect scores, and his score of nine gave him a knockout victory over Froch (one correct result, with no perfect scores).

Froch goes bottom of the guest leaderboard but there has also been change at the top - Leeds Rhinos' and England rugby league captain Kevin Sinfield is now the outright leader because he correctly guessed the result of Sunderland's win over Reading, which was played this week after being postponed in August.

This season, we will also be keeping a record of the total scores for Lawro and his guests (below), and showing a table of how the Premier League would look if all Lawro's predictions came off (also at the bottom of the page).
