One to watch 

Striker, Scott Quigley.

Quigley comes into this fixture, like Barrow, off the back of an upturn in form. He has netted four goals so far this season however three of those have come in the last three outings.

The forward began his career at TNS in Wales, scoring 25 goals in 86 appearances spanning over five years. He earned himself a move to the EFL and signed for Blackpool in 2017 where he only made nine appearances for The Seasiders but enjoyed a loan spell at Wrexham in the National League.

The 28 year old moved to Barrow in the Summer of 2019 and helped them gain EFL status as The Bluebirds were top of the league when the season was curtailed.

Rovers will have to be wary of Quigley to deny him adding to his tally during this purple patch of form.
