Match 36 - Barrow AFC (a)

Barrow 0 - 2 Notts County

Crawford 67'

Roberts 72'


Notts make it 3 wins in 8 days with victory over the league leaders at Holker Street. Ardley and Cox surprised everyone with a 532 formation for the first time this season and it seemed to do the trick.


Again the world of football statistics has decided the National League has very little importance so match data is quite scarce.


Notts' PPG has increased slightly again to 1.58 and now sees a season total prediction of just under 73 points, now just 2 points adrift of the 75 point target I had set to guarantee a play off place, though it seems that is now a little higher than what will be needed.


The win and 3 points ensured Notts held onto 6th place, now just 3 points behind 3rd place Yeaovil with a game in hand.


Points needed for third place has now dropped further again to 75 points and Barrow are still predicted to finish first their points forecast has dropped slightly to 87 points. Harrogate missed out on a chance to close the gap on Barrow to 2 points after failing to beat Bromley at home in the live TV game.


Current PPG for 7th remains at 67 points.
