There are four football teams in our league, each playing each other once in a season. At the end of the season I worked out the league table (with teams in alphabetical order) and consistently replaced digits by letters in some of the entries to give the table below.
Unfortunately I was a bit confused and the points for Albion were based on two points for a win (and one for draw) whereas the others were based on the correct three points for a win.
Which team was top of the league and which was bottom? And which of those two teams (if either) won when they played each other?
