Reading vs Peterborough – Over 1.5 goals
- Of all the games I look at, Norway lower tiers, the Dutch second division, few games in recent memory have looked more goalsy than this one
- Reading have played 6 games so far this season and there’s been 26 goals in them! TWENTY SIX!
- A 3-3 draw at the weekend was pretty indicative of how The Royals have been playing
- John Swift’s hat trick was enough to gain a point, only their 4th of the season so far
- Only sides in the top 8 have outscored Reading so far, however they have the league’s leakiest defence
- Their games average 4.3 goals per game and of course they’ve got a 100% record for over 1.5 goals, in fact they’re 100% for over 2.5
- Speaking of leaky defences, the Championship’s second worst defence are the visitors this evening
- Posh come in to this after being smashed 6-2 by Sheff Utd at the weekend
- That took them up to 14 goals conceded and 6 scored in 6 games, an average of 3.3 per game
- Yes that games had a huge affect on those averages but they’re still a side who produce gold regardless
- Their expansive football means that they go toe to toe with every opposition, rather than sitting in and trying to grind out points
- That’ll inevitably lead to results like the weekend, where Darren Ferguson’s side tried to keep playing and pushing regardless of the consequences
- They’re bristling with attacking talent too, so attacking games is realistically the way to go
- With Jack Marriot, Siriki Dembele, Johnson Clarke-Harris & Sami Szmodics, they have some true quality that can cut it at this level and give them a chance of survival
- After a whopping 14 combined goals in these two’s matches over the weekend, I’ve high hopes for a goal fest here
Chesterfield vs Barnet – Chesterfield to win
- The time is now for Chesterfield, after several seasons stuck in the National League, promotion is imperative
- There’s stiff competition, as always at this level, with other big names like Wrexham, Notts County & Grimsby just a few vying for promotion
- Chesterfield have started very, very well and look incredibly solid
- 5 games, 3 wins and 2 draws, a league low 2 goals conceded and 8 scored
- They’ve kept a clean sheet in 4/5 games so far and would expect to do the same again here
- There is a lot, and I mean a lot of football league quality in this Chesterfield side
- Gavin Gunning, Danny Rowe and Curtis Weston to name just a few
- Rowe will lead the line this evening, his record at this level is quite astonishing, against a leaky defence here he could really kickstart his season
- Alongside him is star man Kabongo Tshimanga, he scored 19 last season for Boreham Wood before making the switch here
- 3 in 5 so far and a great opportunity for his first home goal
- What better chance for some goals than against the one of the league’s worst defences too
- Barnet sit 3rd from bottom, they’re winless in their first 5 and have conceded 13 goals already
- They’ve really struggled against the stronger sides in the league too, conceding 5 to Notts, 4 to Grimsby and 2 to Dag & Red
- As a similar level of side, Chesterfield should be comfortable here
- Barnet have the worst xG in the entire division at just 0.46 per game, which shows they’re really struggling to create chances
- Their xG against is 1.21 too, again an indicator of their frailties at the back
- For comparison, Chesterfield’s xG for is 0.89 (1.08 at home) and their xG against is just 0.58
- That’s near enough double the output and half the xG against, in comparison to Barnet
