Points, Defending and Scoring.

Recommended Posts

As we approach the time where we start ticking off wins required for promotion, how do we stand in comparison to other teams?

Well, we know for starters that our points haul has been fantastic. Let's not forget the really poor run that saw us relegated in extraordinary circumstances of no fans. To then start a new season with no fans still - we've seen much better teams than us struggle to recover first season down. Massive credit has to go to Farke, the coaches and players themselves. Also Webber, I think the players we've bought in have shown a hunger and desire and added that positive attitude where perhaps that may have been struggling due to the previous season. Big credit to the board for holding onto the majority of our best young players too.

Defensively, there's now only two teams who have conceded less than us and they've both played less games than us. We've conceded 25 in 32 games.

For comparison, we conceded 57 in 46 games last time we won this division 

Offensively, only two teams have scored more. The only team that has scored significantly more is Brentford, the rest are within one or two. That's despite our lack of clinical finishing being a topic for most of this season.

We arent there yet but all the signs are very, very good. The side feels much more balanced than both the previous seasons, and had we been more clinical I dont think our goalscoring would be hugely different from our title winning season before.
