Saturday 18th
At half time in League 2 games, securing leads early was crucial as the 3 sides with the best first half records all finished in the top 3. Swindon lost out badly. After being on course for 69 points and 19 wins, they fell away to finally secure 14 wins and 54 points.
From all goals scored and conceded after half time, those in Stockport's games would have secured them 78 points with them leading 20 second halves. Grimsby, as the division's worst side after the break, would secure 45 points compared to the 63 (8th best) in the first halves.
