PREVIEW: Barrow AFC (A)

5 March 2019

It’s another road trip for us as we travel to The Furness Building Society to take on Barrow AFC in the National League this evening 19:45 kick-off.

Head Coach Justin Edinburgh oversaw a 1-2 win away at Havant & Waterlooville last weekend with a goal in each half from Jordan Maguire-Drew and Josh Coulson ensured the O’s took three points back to E10.

Barrow come into tonight’s fixture on the back of a disappointing 3-1 defeat against Barnet last weekend.

Kyle Jameson’s late consolation wasn’t enough to spark a comeback for the Bluebirds as Elliott Johnson, Shaq Coulthirst and a Dan Janes own goal had set the Bees up for victory.

The last time the two sides met, the game produced four goals. Jack Hindle’s opener saw Barrow take the lead before Macauley Bonne’s second-half brace gave the O’s the advantage.

Five minutes from time, the visitors snatched a point through Raul Correia who poked home from close range following a scramble inside Dean Brill’s box.

TEAM NEWS

Following Saturday's victory at Havant & Waterlooville Justin Edinburgh revealed that Myles Judd will be out for the remainder of the season with a Hamstring injury which he sustained in training.
