Barrow Battle On After A Same Day Double Fixture Blow

6 months ago By Sam Elliott

Barrow believe they have enough quality and character to beat their fixture squeeze.

The Bluebirds have had no luck in recent weeks - a high number of postponements have left them playing catch up.

There was a double blow on Tuesday. First their cursed match at Guiseley was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

Then, next Tuesday’s game at Bromley was cancelled due to a postponement at Spennymoor in the FA Trophy an hour before kick-off.

Sympathy of course for their supporters in the north east but it’s more bad new for Barrow who not have 13 games to fit in to the final 50 days of the campaign.

“It’s a challenge, that’s for sure,” said manager Pennock, whose team are fighting for National League survival. “But we have enough about us.”

Managing director Paul Casson said: “It has been a weird last couple of months, weather-wise. You just have to roll with the punches.

“It presents a unique challenge to play so many games in the run-in, but at the same time I think we're also looking forward to relishing that challenge in terms of playing a game every three or four days.

"If you can get some momentum and get some good results, then that will hopefully feed the next match and you can go on a bit of a run and collect a few points if things go right.”
