Wanderers deserve to be mid-table in League One this season, according to WhoScored.com’s ratings.

The Whites have an average rating of 6.62 rating out of 10, which is based on a comprehensive algorithm that uses a wide range of in-game stats.

This score suggests Ian Evatt’s men have been the 16th best side in League One this term, which is very close to their current league position of 15th.

There are several positive stats Wanderers, who lead the way in the division for average possession figures (58.8%).

The Whites also rank highly for both accurate short passes (336) and long balls (33) per game.

Moreover, Evatt’s men sit fourth in the number of shots per match (14.4) and seventh for shots on target (4.2), yet they are middle of the road for goals scored (29).

This has been a big issue on the road, with last weekend’s 1-0 defeat at Accrington Stanley making it six league away matches without a goal – a joint club record.

They also make the top four in the fair play table, having received 31 yellow cards and just one red this term – that being Ricardo Santos’ recent dismissal at Fleetwood.

However, there are also some concerning stats from a Wanderers point-of-view, with the side bottom of the division for interceptions per game (seven).

Moreover, the Whites have given the ball away 10.3 times per game on average – only Sheffield Wednesday, MK Dons and Crewe have been more wasteful on the ball.

Evatt’s men are also joint-bottom for aerial battles lost in League One this season along with MK Dons, with an average of 15 per match.

This stat is particularly worrying given Wanderers have struggled at times against direct sides since their return to the third tier.

The Whites will be looking to improve on some of these stats when they welcome fourth-placed Wycombe to the UniBol on Saturday afternoon (KO 3pm).

Thanks for the post kp. 
I wonder if the key stats for most teams end up ranking them into their actual league positions. 
In fact. It might be more unusual if they didn't...

Key stats for me are that we've only scored 29 goals but conceded 33.
Possession is irrelevant if most of it is across the back and we don't do anything with it IMO.
