how can I solve this challenge?

Challenge Task 1 of 1

We're back in the sports team database. There's a results table with the columns id, home_team, home_score, away_team, away_score and played_on . Find all the matches in the results table where "Hessle" was playing away as the away team and if they played on or after October 1st 2015. Date format is "YYYY-MM-DD".

Check your date format.

In future questions, remember to always show your code so we can get a better idea of what might be going wrong.

But as a guess, a common issue is to forget to enclose the literal date in quotes.

SELECT * FROM results WHERE away_team = "Hessle" AND played_on >= "2015-10-01";

Thanks Steven got it right?
