Preview - Bromley (h)

Bromley come to Meadow Lane on Tuesday night with the best away record in the league as they look to make it 7 games on the road without defeat.


But with no goals conceded in over 350 minutes by the Magpies the visitors will hopefully have their work cut out.


A quick look back at the xG overview for the Weymouth game and despite Notts having more attempts on goal Weymouth had the best chances, both in the second half by McCarthy and both dealt with by Slocombe.


Interestingly having assessed the difficulty of Sam's goal which would have included the fact he picked the ball up on the half way line, beat three defenders and avoided a last gasp sliding challenge from the last man as he "shot", it was concluded the likelihood of him scoring was just 1% . . . an xG rating of just 0.01.

xG and xPTS match overview below and on the face of it you might suggest Notts were lucky to come away with the 3 points but the ratings are probably outweighed a little by the two very good chances Weymouth had.



On to Bromley now and we'll start as usual with the current form radar and its the Bromley attack and away form that might ring a few alarm bells for Notts.

Goals by time segment for Bromley and with 28 goals in the 'for' column they are in the top 4 in the attacking table but have shipped 21 goals which suggests their games are pretty open affairs.

By contrast Notts have not conceded a goal in the league for 351 minutes but still have a way to go begore they start threatening the top of the attack table.


Bromley are averaging 1.65 goals per game and average 11.06 goal attempts per 90 minutes meaning they score on average every 6.70 attempts on goal.


Notts are averaging 1.29 goals per game and average 11.12 goal attempts per 90 minutes meaning they average a goal every 8.62 attempts.


Bromley are shipping 1.23 goals per game on average from compared to Notts who are conceding just 0.76 goals per game.


Notts are top of the possession charts averaging 53% per 90 minutes whilst Bromley maintain just over 45% possession per game.


Lead status for both clubs and Bromley have held the lead in games longer than Notts but Notts continue to have an exceptionally low trailing figure.


With Hartlepool away at Halifax and Stockport hosting Sutton there is an outside chance that a win for Notts could see them as jump up to 2nd whilst a defeat might still see Notts cling onto a top 7 spot.


Notts are slight favourites with the bookies where you will only get circa 13/11 for the home win, 9/4 for the away win and 13/5 for the draw.


Despite being threatening in attack Bromley will have their work cut out trying break down the leagues best defence. Hopefully Notts will try and impose their own creative threat and take the game to Bromley early on, failure to do so will likely see the two teams start to cancel each other out and another low scoring or goalless game could be on the cards.


COYP!
