Excel-lent: The Championship in graphs and charts
Things can get a bit text-heavy on The Seventy Two and a change, so they say, is as good as a rest. So here, instead, are a few graphs for you showing some of the trends and quirks in the Championship so far this season. If anyone’s interested, League One and League Two will follow…
Since last home draw
The huge splodge of purple in the bottom right of this pie chart shows how unusual Ipswich Town’s current run of 12 games without a draw at home is. Portman Road’s first league game of the season ended in a draw, with Burnley the visitors. Since then, Ipswich have won six and lost six at home.
Teams ordered alphabetically clockwise from top.
Since last away draw
That huge spike on the right-hand side represents Scunthorpe United’s 14 games without registering a draw away from home so far this season. Six wins, eight defeats for Scunny on the road.
Teams ordered alphabetically from left to right.
Points distribution between the Foxes and the Rams
Next weekend sees the meeting of Derby County and Leicester City at Pride Park. This graph demonstrates the switch in fortunes between the two teams over the course of this season.
Derby County points distribution shown in white, Leicester City in blue. Season represented from left to right in chronological order (Leicester have played one game more).
This graph shows the goal difference of each side from top of the table Queen’s Park Rangers on the left through to basement boys Preston North End on the right.
