What Great Britain's men need to do to finish in the top four

Adam Dixon celebrates in the FIH Pro League
With two games left to play, Great Britain's men's team are in with a shout of reaching the top four in the inaugural FIH Pro League.

If they do finish in the top four, they will progress to the Grand Final in the Netherlands and will then be in with a chance of winning the first ever FIH Pro League trophy.

The table is determined firstly by points, then games won, followed by goal difference, then goals scored. If those are all tied, it will be on the aggregate of the games between the teams, then field goals then cards shown.

Britain are currently fourth in the table if determined by points to date, but both Argentina and Germany have games in hand, so we are looking to stay ahead of them first and foremost.

Here are the permutations for the final two weeks of the league:

If Britain win both games, we would make the top four if:
Argentina take six points or fewer from their remaining two matches.

Or Argentina take seven points AND Britain's goal difference remains superior to Argentina's.

There are also permutations that could involve the Netherlands, Belgium or possibly Australia but these will become clearer after the next round of matches, particularly as Britain face the Dutch on Friday night in a crucial match at Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre.

If Britain take five points from their two games, we would make the top four if:
Argentina take five points or fewer from their three matches.

Or Argentina take six points, but they would need to have only won one game in normal time AND for our goal difference to remain superior.

If Britain take four points from their two games, we would make the top four if:
Germany take two points or fewer from their remaining game AND Argentina take five points but we maintain our superior goal difference

Or Germany take two points or fewer AND Argentina take five points or fewer.

If Britain take three points from their two games, we would make the top four if:
Germany take one or zero points from their remaining game AND Argentina take four points but we maintain our superior goal difference

OR Germany take one or zero from their remaining game AND Argentina take fewer than four points. However if Argentina win a game in normal time but Britain do not, they would progress on games won.
