I doubt Mr O’Callaghan will read this blog post but I think I can be of some help with a simple analytical tweek when Mansfield are at home  which is to be more conservative in the opening few minutes ( high pressing when not in possession ).

Mansfield since 2013-2014 in League 2 have conceded the opening goal at home in 31 games and a whopping 20/31 ( 65% ) of the opening goals conceded were in the 0-20 minutes time band . 

In the table below > GAME PATHWAY >

10/31 <> 1-1  <> 2-4-4

13/31 <> 0-2 <> 0-1-12

8/31 <> 0-1 FT

2-5-24 

Mansfield lost 77%

Last season in league 2 in games where the away teams opened the scoring in the 0-20 minutes time band, 77% ended over 2.5 goals and 49% ended over 3.5 goals.

Both teams scored in 85% and over 1.5 goals was landed in the first half in 70%

The home teams won 17%, 22% ended a DRAW and the away teams won 61%

 

GAME PATHWAY

3/92 0-1 FT

51/92 > 1-1 13-12-26 <> away teams won 51%

38/92 > 0-2 3-8-27 <> away teams won 71%

 

Summary

If you are looking at conceding data from a trading perspective then it is as useful as a chocolate teapot if it does not factor the time of the opening goal added to the effect of the game state ( current score ) as time decays in an individual league .
