We are still 9th in the xG league table (P21 W7 D9 L5 = 30 Points (+7 points). Only 4 points off the play offs! Our win over Port Vale was our best xG attacking performance of the season (3.4) and our second best defensive xG performance (0.4) after Tranmere Rovers(H) (0.2). 5 out of our 6 best attacking xG performances have come under Nigel Clough; and 6 out of our best 9 defensive performances.
Yesterday’s xG includes the two penalties @ 0.8 each so from open play we scored 3 goals from an xG of 1.8 from the remaining 17 shots (4 on target). The Clarke goal (including Charsley’s initial shot) accounted for 0.5 of these points.
Despite the excellent result and performance we are still not producing many clear chances with lots of the shots being from around the edge or outside the penalty box which is why many of them are off target.
This sounds critical but it’s not meant to be, I’m just stating facts. I’m very happy that we are getting in the box and creating chances or making their defence make errors for cards and penalties.
Good point Halifax.
The best attack in the league (Newport) average an xG of 1.77 per game, so that would have been average performance from them.
There are different ways of getting to the same xG. For example, on Boxing Day Harrogate had twice as many shots as Oldham but they ended up with a similar xG. The stat means nothing without some context.
