Today we are giving you another sporting chance of an instant win.

In Saturday's paper, and Sunday's Independent on Sunday, there was a Questions Of Sport multi-choice scratch card each of which, if you answer three sporting questions correctly, gives you the chance of an instant cash prize from pounds 1 to pounds 1,000.

You don't have to be an obsessive fan to play - a good general sporting knowledge should suffice. But remember, you only get one chance to answer each question, so if you are in any doubt, check it out.

The card contains eight games so you can play daily through to Friday 12 January

And as well as the daily instant cash prizes there is a weekly accumulator prize of pounds 5,000


Today we are playing the section of the card dated Tuesday 9 January. Below are three sporting questions, each with three possible answers coded as A, B and C. Scratch off your answer to Question Thirteen, either A,B or C in the Q13 column then repeat for Q14 and Q15.
