Will it be a dream for Nightmare Returns?

Scottish Life is the exclusive sponsor of Sky&#39s pay-per-view Premiership football channel Premiership Plus. To celebrate this new partnership, Scottish Life has teamed up with Money Marketing to offer IFAs some fantastic prizes and the opportunity to win a trip to Japan to see England play Argentina.

Over the past two months, The Fantasy League has mirrored the Premiership table, with the top spot changing hands several times. With just the final Premiership action left, the tension really is mounting for the top managers. Can Nightmare Returns hold on at the top?

We are pleased to ann-ounce the winners of Manager of the Month prize for the past two months. Brian Butcher, manager of Butch&#39s Babes wins the prize for March, and Michael Hough-ton, manager of Locomotiv Lammack wins the prize for April. Both Brian and Michael win two tickets to a Premiership match, a year&#39s free subscription to Sky Sports including minidish and digibox and a season ticket for Sky&#39s pay-per-view coverage on Premiership Plus.
