Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Carlisle United and Barrow go head to head at Brunton Park on Matchday 4. The start of the season has been a mixed bag for the Cumbrians, who defeated Southend at home, while suffering back-to-back defeats to Cambridge and Scunthorpe on the road. Carlisle United did suffered the loss at Sands Venue Stadium at the weekend, but it has to be noted that they failed to turn their dominance into the equalizing goal.
Barrow, on the other hand, are eyeing their first win of the season, and they are likely to leave their hearts on the field in Saturday’s football game. Nonetheless, away win should not be considered as the visitors will be without injured defender Kgosi Ntlhe in the Brunton Park showdown. Taking everything into account, the Cumbrians are likely to keep their 100% record in the 2020/21 League Two season at home ground intact.
Highlighted Player (Gethin Jones):
Born in Perth, Australia on October 13, 1995, Gethin Jones is a professional footballer who plays for Carlisle United in the League Two as a defender. Jones is a product of the Wrexham football school, but he played for Everton at youth level as well.
The pacey right-back made only one appearance for the Toffees as he played against Krasnodar in the Europa League 2013/2014 season. Gethin Jones played for the likes of Plymouth Argyle (loan), Barnsley (loan), Fleetwood Town, and Mansfield Town (loan) as well before joining his current club Carlisle United. Jones is eligible to play for Australia and Wales despite playing for the Wales U17, U19, and U21 teams in the past.
He made his League Two debut with Carlisle United in a 3-2 win over Stevenage on September 14, 2019. Jones’ main position is right-back, but he is used as both right midfielder and left-back as well. His preferred foot is right.
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.
