Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Following a thrilling 2-2 draw with Stockport County, Barrow will look to return to winning ways in the League Two when they take on Accrington on Matchday 25. The Bluebirds have been impressive in front of goal of late and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Ben Whitfield, who has been scoring goals for fun in recent weeks.
The Accy Stanley, on the other hand, aim to climb to the playoffs berth, but given Barrow’s fine home record, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of grabbing something from Friday’s clash. Even though John Coleman has no fresh injury worries, we are tempted to put our money on the automatic promotion-chasing hosts. It has to be noted that Accrington have suffered three defeats in the previous four away matches.
Highlighted Team (Barrow):
Founded back in 1901, Barrow is an English club that competes in the League two, the fourth tier of the English football system. The Bluebirds are well known for their blue shirts with white details, but yellow is the dominant colour of their away jersey. Barrow play home games at Holker Street, the stadium which can hold up to 5,045 spectators.
The venue was opened in 1909, and it has to be noted that no fewer than 16,874 people attended the FA Cup match between Barrow and Swansea in January, 1954. The Bluebirds have won two FA Trophies (1989/90, 2009/10), with the team lifting the Lancashire Senior Cup trophy in the 1954/55.
The likes of James Bell, Jim Collins, Andy McLaren, Jimmy Mulholland, Jackie Robertson, Barry Diamond, and George King are the most notable footballers who played for Barrow in the past. It has to be noted that the Bluebirds have never competed in the English top flight.
