A League 2 blog with an overwhelmingly pro-Torquay United bias
I’ve updated my surprisingly popular analysis which ranks each League 2 side according to the ease of their remaining fixtures on 3 measures: the average points tally of their remaining opponents, the number of games they have remaining and the proportion of these which are at home. It’s fairly rudimentary stuff but I think it’s quite instructive.
Accrington still have the easiest run-in, having 6 of their 9 remaining games at home. It’s arguable how much benefit Burton’s fixture backlog confers, as playing 2 matches per week will surely erode their fitness levels. The good news for those who enjoy a good promotion battle is that all but 3 of the teams currently in the top half of the table are also in the top half of this table. Chesterfield probably won’t care about the toughness of their run-in as they’re all but up, but Torquay and Oxford fans will be somewhat discouraged. At the other end of the division, Stockport and Barnet still have a torrid end to the season on paper.
