League One Alternative Table

A visual league table of League One to provide a clearer indication of the actual points gap between teams. Number in brackets is no. of games played.

With 2 wins in a week, Tranmere Rovers show what a difference back to back wins can do to League position. Swindon’s position now 4 points off the bottom also hasn’t been helped by the recent good form of Dagenham & Redbridge and Walsall taking 11 and 10 points from the last 18.

Following the midweek postponement at Exeter, even a sorely needed win against Carlisle tomorrow might not see Swindon escape the relegation zone…

56 Brighton & Hove Albion (28)

53 AFC Bournemouth (30)

One comment

  • With about a third of the season still ahead of us, I am starting to look at the teams we can and have to beat to make it to safety.
    Whilst a win tomorrow would do no harm, we should pick up at least a point.
    It is crucial though, we win the first 3 games in March as the teams around us will have their Tuesday games and psychologically it’s of course better to be ahead than having to make up ground.
    One of the 3 games includes a games away to Plymouth, one of the teams that are relegation candidates at this stage. It will be difficult to leave Huddesfield, Brighton and Southampton with any points, but would not be surprised if we would.
    That then leaves a number of games where we should be able to gather sufficient points.
    Looking at the teams the other relegation candidates still have to play, we are quite well off.
    We still have the 3 mentioned above from the current top 6, whilst in-form D&R still have 8 encounters with the top 6 of which both Brighton and Peterborough twice! BR and Notts County still have 5 games against top 6 teams, Yeovil, Tranmere and Brentford 5, Walsall and Sheff W 4 and Plymouth 3.

    And then there are the various battles around the bottom of the table as well. Either way, 9 points from the first 3 games in March are crucial to set us up for a run in form that should lead us to safety.

    My prediction today: Town end up 19th, with Yeovil, Plymouth, D&R, Walsall & BR below us……..
