Match Preview: Barrow

22 April 2021

Tranmere Rovers are in action once again this Saturday to take on Barrow in the third to last fixture of the league campaign.

Keith Hill’s men picked up a hard earned three points on Tuesday night at Bradford and will be looking to take that result into the final three games of the regular season. Rovers sit in 5th position in League Two, four points outside of the automatic positions.

Barrow, back under the reigns of Rob Kelly, are edging closer to safety from relegation with a few games to spare. The Bluebirds are eight points from the drop with a game in hand in their first season back in the Football League.

Team news 

Keith Hill has reported that James Vaughan is out of action for the time being whilst he recovers from a knee injury.

Scott Davies also remains sidelined with an achilles injury.

One to watch 

Striker, Scott Quigley.

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.

This term, he has netted 13 goals in all competitions and has adapted to life back in the Football League quite well. His last goal came in a 2-1 win over Exeter City on the 13th April.
