Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Barrow play host to Notts County at their Holker Street on day 12 of the new League Two campaign. The Bluebirds aim to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Grimsby and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-oriented strategy against the promotion hopefuls. Experienced midfielder Sam Foley should be recalled to the starting XI after scoring as a substitute in the midweek defeats, while there are no fresh injury concerns in the home team.
The Black and Whites, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 3-1 win over Swindon, with the team quickly bouncing back from a 5-4 loss to Colchester. David McGoldrick is not getting any older and we are positive that the former Sheffield United man is going to prove a handful for the opposition back-line. Notts County are more of a team than Barrow and we predict that the visitors are going to pick up all three points from the match.
