Walsall v FGR: EFL Trophy

Postby The Old TomCat » Sun Nov 10, 2019 10:35 am

The top two teams in EFL Trophy group stage tables progress to next round [knockout stage]
As long as FGR avoid defeat at Walsall they will progress to the knockout stage which remains on a regional base.

Walsall are 22nd [15 points] in League 2.

Now that FGR are within touching distance of competing in the knockouts with better cash rewards, I don’t think the club will be taking this match lightly.
[£10,000 win & £5,000 draw.]
FGR are currently playing good winning football and I expect to watch an away win.

C’mon you Rovers.

So if our match against Walsall ends up as a draw, and Walsall win the penalty shoot-out, there will be 3 teams on 6 points, so what happens then? Would it be FGR and Walsall going through on goals scored?

The EFL will utilise the traditional ‘AB, AB, AB and so on’ format.

(x) If two or more Clubs are equal on points on completion of the group Matches the following criteria are applied in the order give to determine their rankings:

(A) goal difference;

(B) higher number of goals scored in the group Matches;

(C) number of wins (after normal time i.e. not the result of any drawn match followed by penalties);

(D) the record against each other in the group Match, taking into account in order of precedence, points gained, goal difference, higher number of goals scored;

(E) if the Clubs still have an equal ranking after the application of (A) to (D), by the drawing of lots.

maybe a win is important to secure top spot to ensure a home tie in next round.

second in the group means an away tie .

i think the format of this competition is very well thought out

If we draw and get 1 point we win the group, and get the home tie.

Having cleverly waited for the team news on Saturday, I then not so cleverly forgot to post my prediction. Apologies for that OTC.

Anyway having seen the team tonight, I'll go for a 3-1 loss, Collins to score.

Hopefully I'm wrong, but at least this will be a great experience for all the young lads and some useful minutes for the rest.

Should have looked at the team sheet first, Collins to score, McCoulsky must be well out of favour

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
