Post “Boxing Day” statistics
The attached table shows the current Sky Bet League 2 table at the half way stage of the season. It also shows the results gained against each team. This highlights the outstanding results gained against Northampton and Plymouth, given their current league position.
The last column shows what effect a 1 goal swing to the U's has on each result compared to the reverse fixture.
The U's gained a total of 33 points from the first half of the season. A 1 goal swing in each game would mean they gain 50 points from the second half of the season. This would give a total of 83 points and be enough for the Amber Army to dream of Automatic Promotion well into the second half of April.
