London-listed pool betting operator Sportech said Thursday that trading for the seven-week period ended November 9th was in line with management expectations, with revenue from its Football Pools business benefiting from growth in revenue and player numbers in the digital channel.

The company explained that it continued to make good operational progress after posting a 4.5 per cent drop in revenue to £48.7m during the first half of 2016, with its financial performance in line with expectations.
