Keith Hill's thoughts ahead of trip to Barrow

28 December 2020

Manager Keith Hill says there is a lot of good work happening with the TRFC squad as they prepare for their final game of 2020 with a trip to Barrow on Tuesday night. 

Rovers will head to Cumbria looking to end the calendar year with a win, against Michael Jolley's side, with the Barrow boss embarking on his first home match in charge of the Bluebirds. 

In what has been a difficult season for clubs across the country, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, with matches cancelled and players missing from matchday squads, Hill says his team are ready for the challenge awaiting them on Tuesday against an in-form Barrowside. 

The boss said: "It will be a difficult game. The games are coming thick and fast and each match is really important. I need to make sure that I get the right balance and the right output from our squad that represents our values to win football matches. 

"Our performance on Saturday justified more than a loss, and we have got to continue our performance levels but make sure in games, we are better both defensively and in attack, and then that consistency will then return to our results. 

"It is about working hard to get your just rewards and we train every day in preparation for a matchday. We are going up there and fully respecting Barrow, with an opportunity to go and get something from the game. 

"We have to put in a good workmanlike performance and hope that the quality we have got shines through against a good opposition. 

“There is a lot of good work that we are doing which will help us improve our results, so I’ve been really pleased, and it is about moving our performances individually and collectively forward and gaining consistency."​
