Another struggle but for once one that inflicted the kind of performance and result Notts have succumbed to on several occasions this season.
Key match stats.
On reflection the match stats, other than xG, look pretty even.
Points needed and as it stands Notts are still projected to finish around 7th/8th place, but of course this doesn't take into consideration the difficulty levels of games still to play..

Progress updated, as with points needed above, could do with a decent run of games to make sure top 7 is achievable.
National League results tracker updated.
Goal segment chart:
Six game segments updated. 1.333 goals from the first 3 games of this segment.
Player stats updated: Harry Arter making an impression in his first 62 minutes in a Notts shirt, including an assist and a yellow card.
As usual this is the new table that is also available to view on the player stats page of the website here. There will also be separate tables for the two cup competitions.
Goals and assists chart. Amazing to see Alex Lacey is on 5 goals with 3 of those in the last 4 appearances.
Goal scatter charts updated.
You can hover on the dots (tap if on a touch screen) to view details for each goal.
Expected goals and Notts second best in xG for the 4th time in 5 matches. What should be considered is that there is no xG value given for the own goal. Also worth noting a few big chances for Dagenham but also credit to Vitezslav Jaros who made some very good saves.
Match xG stats:
Player xG Stats: Just 7 attempts on goal from 5 players. Lacey with the goal was Notts' biggest chance, Kyle Wootton with a chance late on.
National League goal scorers includes cup games, penalties and own goals.
Ian Burchnall's record updated after 60 games:
The fixture's don't get any easier with Boreham Wood the visitors tonight (Tue 22 Mar).
The Wood are having a bit of wobble and including the loss at Everton in the FA Cup have won just 1 game in the last 8, recording their last league win at home to Eastleigh on the 26th February.
Threats will come from Scott Boden and Tyrone Marsh up front with attacking midfielder Josh Rees also one to keep an eye on.
One thing that is clearly a strong point for the Wood is their defensive record, however Jamal Fyfield, Jacob Mendy and Will Evans also pose a physical threat at set pieces.
With 11 games to go Notts really need to get a decent run going, let's hope that the win at Dagenham was the start of one and they continue in the same vein tonight . .
As always thanks for reading.
