Due to the teams that both of us should have been playing are involved in the EFL Trophy Final this weekend, we now welcome Barrow to Fortress Bescot for a Friday Night Football Fiasco.
Caretaker vs Caretaker
18th vs 22nd
A relegation six pointer?
Barrow have dispensed with the services of two managers this season in David Dunn and Michael Jolley and are now led on a caretaker basis until the end of the season by Rob Kelly who is vastly experienced within football.
They currently find themselves 22nd in League Two with 29 points from 31 games and have scored 35 goals (Walsall have 36) and have conceded 41 (just like us!). They are scrapping for their league status and are going to be fully motivated to beat us to aid their potential survival.
Barrow’s last six games have been:
16th Feb - Salford City (a) - Lost 1-0
20th Feb - Morecambe (h) - Lost 2-1
23rd Feb - Oldham Athletic (a) - Won 2-1
27th Feb - Bolton Wanderers (a) - Lost 1-0
2nd Mar - Harrogate Town (h) - Lost 1-0
6th Mar - Mansfield Town (h) - Won 2-0
6 points out of 18.
Due to work I didn’t see us play on Saturday but based on numerous comments it appears that although we didn’t make a breakthrough, we were playing better than in recent games. Will this continue?
Please post up your predictions for the score, starting line up, and how you see the game being. Personally I think we always struggle with the lower placed teams and I’m not looking forward to this game one bit.
Any links between the sides, give us some info below!
This is quite possibly the BIGGEST GAME FOR MANY YEARS for Walsall. Defeat, and i fear the worst.
- Walsall Win
- Goalless Draw
- Score Draw
- Barrow Win
