Form guide: Steve Gabb looks at Bracknell Town’s Hellenic League credentials

With Bracknell Town playing their eleventh game of a thirty-four game Hellenic Premier League season, now is a good time to take a look how they compare with their Hellenic League rivals from a statistical point of view.

Only Highmoor-IBIS and Thame United have played as few league games as Bracknell Town this season. Their eleven games is a league low in comparison with the sixteen league games that top of the table Thatcham Town and bottom of the table Burnham have played so far this season.

Looking at the Hellenic Premier League table we can see that Bracknell Town lie in a very creditable fifth place.

However, many of their rivals in the top half of the table have played more games. While Thatcham Town are currently sitting at the top of the Hellenic Premier, they have played more games than other sides around them.

It is Thame United who have earned the most points per game this season with Bracknell Town following closely in second place. While it’s always vitally important to get points on the board, Thatcham have played five games more than both Thame and Bracknell.

Despite Bracknell Town’s last two fixtures ending as 6-0 and 9-0 routs, it’s Thame United who have scored the most goals per game so far in the Hellenic Premier. Helped along by the goals of Andrew Gledhill who has netted a frankly ridiculous 20 goals in 10 league games, Thame United have scored an average of 4.091 goals per game.

Goals primarily from strike duo Adam Cornell and TJ Bohane have helped propel Bracknell into second place in this table.

Bracknell had a slow start to the season. Of the three losses they have experienced this season (two in the league and one in the FA Cup), all of them came in August.

Since the Egham Town cup loss, Bracknell Town have gone from strength to strength, only drawing once in September and have currently recorded a perfect October, winning all five games in the month.

The last three games have been especially pleasing with clean sheets kept in the last three games against Burnham, Wootton Bassett and Brackley Town Saints. Incidentally these are Bracknell Town’s only three clean sheets of the season.

Perhaps one of the stranger aspects of Bracknell Town’s season is that they have only played three league matches at “home” and have played eight away.

As Larges Lane is being re-developed most of Bracknell’s early season fixtures were scheduled away from home. Most of the clubs in the division have played at least five games at home, whilst Burnham have played nine games at The Gore.

One thing that is worth noting is the form table from the last 6 games..
