MATCH FACTS: Warriors need to be on song to beat Bros

Match Facts is a weekly column that dissects the numbers from the Wide Bay League: attacking and defensive milestones, and other random stats.

United Warriors will need to produce their best defence if they are to stand a chance against Brothers Aston Villa.

The Bundaberg club has smashed all before it, and remain the only undefeated team in the Wide Bay League. Brothers have won their five games by an average of 5.6 goals.

The powerhouse has scored 27 goals in its last three games, but conceded only three goals all year (two courtesy of KSS Jets).

United has conceded a minimum of two goals in each game so far.

The Warriors have scored only seven goals (1.16 per game) but let in 21 (3.5 per game).

Across The Waves' game against Bingera should be the tightest game this weekend.

ATW boasts the third-best attack and second-best defence, while Bingera is second in terms of attack and third in defence.

Both teams have lost just once this year, though ATW has played one more game.

KSS Jets' Hervey Bay Sports Club clash with Sunbury is a battle between the two best-performing Fraser Coast clubs in the competition.

The Jets painted Hervey Bay red after their first-ever win over the Warriors last week, and now have their sights set on the region.

Sunbury Blues boast better attacking, defence, and win-loss records, and a win could ensure the Maryborough club stays in the top four.

Fellow Maryborough club Doon Villa hopes the boys at Blues win as they aim to keep pace with the top four.

The Magpies fell one goal short of ATW last week, but they boast the fifth-best defence in the competition, conceding just 2.8 goals per game. UPE have the worst defence, conceding 30 goals in six games.
