Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Cheltenham will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Exeter when they take on Barrow in the League Two round 25. The Robins aim to retain top position in the standings, and bookies see them as favourites to win the midweek clash. Veteran forward Andrew Williams should once again start from the bench despite scoring a late winner at the weekend. You should bear in mind that Cheltenham are eyeing their ninth home win of the season.
Barrow, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Mansfield and Walsall. The relegation-threatened visitors have been showing signs of improvement of late, but Cheltenham are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the visitors than their previous rivals. Defender Bradley Barry, who suffered an injury in the win over Walsall, is unlikely to feature in Tuesday’s clash.
Highlighted Player (Chriss Hussey):
Born in Hammersmith, England, Christopher Hussey is an experienced defender who plays for Cheltenham Town in the League Two. After spending his youth career at the likes of Woking and AFC Wimbledon, Hussey continued playing for the Dons at senior level.
He played for a number of English clubs in the past, but, no doubt, the most notable one is Sheffield United. Chris Hussey made seven appearances for the Blades in the League One, but nowadays he is a League Two player. His main position is left-back, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a left midfielder as well.
It has to be noted that he was called up for the England C team as a standby. Christopher Hussey made his Cheltenham Town debut on August 21, 2018 in a 1-1 draw with Macclesfield Town. He scored his first goal with the Robins in a 4-2 loss to Mansfield Town.
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.
