League One Goal and xG Tiers 12.02.2024 | BlueArmyBlog | A Carlisle United Blog

Following the defeat against Pompey at the weekend, I thought it would be interesting to have a look at the goal and xG numbers to see how we're stacking up against the rest of the division.

We're in and around a cluster of the four worst-rated teams in the division when it comes to goals and xG. The other teams are Burton, Shrewsbury and Cheltenham.

Us and Cheltenham are where we deserve to be, but, interestingly enough Burton and Shrewsbury are riding their luck and 35 and 34 points each.

Fleetwood's good attack has made their results improve in the last few games. They look on paper to be the team who could beat the drop from the teams in the relegation zone, currently.

Northampton have similar xG and goal stats as Port Vale, but, find themselves in 11th on 41 points while Vale are in 21st on 31 points.

Towards the top end, Peterborough's defence is letting them down.

It looks like the top two will be decided between Bolton, Pompey and Derby.

The last playoff place will be between Stevenage, Blackpool and Oxford.
