The Opposition:

The Bluebirds will be more than happy with the start to their season as they currently sit on top of the pile with a game in hand on Bromley who sit level on points with them in second. The hosts have a number of talented players who have more than impressed so far this season which has helped in their ascent up the league.

Despite having lost seven games, Ian Evatt’s side have only drawn once and have taken three points in 12 fixtures this season, the most recent coming in an impressive 3-0 away win over Notts County who were a League Two side last year.

It is likely Barrow will prove to be a tough test for Darren Currie’s side who will hope to be able to kickstart a run of form that can see them climb back up the table once again.

 

The Gaffer: Ian Evatt

Ian Evatt, the central midfielder turned central defender, had a career spanning 19 years playing for teams such as: Derby County, QPR, Blackpool and Chesterfield and amassed over 500 appearances in that time.

Five years on from his return to Chesterfield where he had previously played earlier in his career, he was made caretaker manager of the side following the departure of Jack Lester but inevitably, his side were relegated. In June 2018, he was announced as the manager of the Bluebirds and officially retired in July 2019 after making an appearance, solicited by fans retweeting a tweet 1,000 times, in a friendly against his former side Blackpool United. 

 

One to Watch: Scott Quigley

Forward Scott Quigley has played an important role in where Barrow currently sit in the table having scored 12 goal in his 16 appearances for the club. Quigley’s career started off at The New Saints before being brought by Blackpool United where a series of loan spells followed at Wrexham, Port Vale and Halifax Town.

This summer however, Barrow were able to secure the forward on a three-year-deal having impressed at other National League rivals. His style of play has been noted as someone who despite being 6 foot 4, has a lot of pace and prefers to play with the ball at his feet.

Match Reports

Match Pack: Barrow 2-1 Barnet

23 November 2019

The Bees suffered defeat at the hands of league leaders Barrow AFC in an intense contest at the Progression Solicitors Stadium.

HOW IT HAPPENED: 

The Bees started brightly and almost opened the scoring as Ephron Mason-Clark flashed an effort just wide of the far post. 

Meanwhile up the other end, Dior Angus forced Scott Loach into a save as he tipped his low effort round the post. 

But it was the hosts who took the lead midway through the half as Josh Kay was found in space, before sweeping past Loach and into the corner. 

The Bees almost got straight back into it and will be kicking themselves that they didn't, Jack Taylor rose highest to win a header six yards out, but it went wide of the post. It was a chance that could only be described as guilt edged. 

30 seconds later John Rooney unleashed a superb effort from the corner of the box that flew into the back of the net, leaving Loach with absolutely no chance. 

The second goal was a real kick in the teeth for the Bees and they struggled to get going again from there on, as the hosts knocked the ball around with confidence. 

The second half saw a golden chance for Vilhete after a superb pass by J Taylor, however our number 20 fired wide on the volley. 

Up the other end Quigley had a number of efforts well saved by Loach, our number one making a string of fine stops to keep his side with a chance. 

With 12 minutes to play Loach was back at his brilliant best as he made a great stop with his boot to deny Kay a second goal.

Five minutes from the end J Taylor took advantage of a defensive mistake to slot home and give us hope. 

With six minutes added on the Bees threw everything at the Bluebirds, Callum Reynolds fired an effort that was stopped well with Dixon. 

That proved to be the last chance for the Bees and they make the long trip to London empty handed. 

Barnet: Loach, Alexander, Johnson, Reynolds, Dunne (Fonguck '68), J Taylor, H Taylor, Elito, Walker (Akinola '45), Sweeney, Mason-Clark (Vilhete '21)

 

TEAM NEWS: 

Darren Currie made one change from last weekend's bitter defeat to Stockport County, as Jack Taylor came in for David Tutonda as the Irishman returned from international duty.
