There have been a total of 106 matches across different venues this season, with 200 goals scored in the league so far. There have also been 14 away wins this season so far.

Which further signifies a average away victory of 13.2% and a approximately 1.88 goals per game..

Significantly, the most worrisome stats is the set piece aspect which comprises of penalties , corner kicks , throw ins and indirect /direct freekicks …Among the 200 goals less than 10 came from direct or indirect freekicks ..depicting a lack of dead ball specialists in the league….

Technically, freekicks (direct/indirect) are major sources of goals especially in tight games and enhancingly NPFL coaches need to do more in motivating ,discovering and strategizing practice session to inprove the out come of goals from freekicks .

Purposefully, with a 13.2% away game percentage this can be improved more when coaches set up more attacking formation’s in away games and focus less on defensive strategies….

Futuristically, with the right balance the NPFL would attain major hieghts of development and productivity .
