League 2 timelines, 30 Oct – 3 Nov 2018

Here are the individual timeline graphics for the latest round of matches, using my revised template for the new season. There’s a full explanation of these here for anyone who’s not seen them before.

First of all, there was a rogue midweek match which I’ll tuck in here:

Newport made a spirited effort to come back from the two early goals they conceded at Carlisle and the data suggests they did enough to recover at least a point before conceding a late third. Macclesfield’s heavy defeat looks to have been far closer than the result suggests – it seems as though they could have scraped a point from that performance on another day. Morecambe’s win over Yeovil was a strange one – if they’d converted their first half penalty they’d have scored with every one of their three shots, while the visiting Glovers’ second half dominance could easily have rescued a draw.
