Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Stevenage will be aiming to build on a 3-1 win over Carlisle United when they take on Barrow at Broadhall Way. The Boro are on a three-game winning run at home ground, but, as things stand now, they will find it hard to book their place in the playoffs. Boss Alex Revell should stick to the 4-4-2 formation with Norris and List up front. Barrow, on the other hand, aim to escape the danger zone in the League Two standings.
The newcomers failed to impress in a 1-0 loss to Grimsby on Tuesday evening, and given Stevenage’s form in March, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of grabbing something from the Broadhall Way clash. Stevenage crushed Barrow 4-0 in the previous meeting between the two teams at the venue, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
Highlighted Player (Scott Cuthbert ):
Born in Alexandria, Scotland on June 15, 1987, Scott Cuthbert is a defender who plays for Stevenage in the League Two. Cuthbert is a product of the Celtic football academy, but he did not see any game action with the Hoops in the Scottish Premiership.
After ending his loan spells with Livingston and St. Mirren, the Scottish footballer joined Swindon Town in 2009 where he quickly established himself as a first-team regular. After scoring five goals in 80 appearances for the club, Scott Cuthbert moved to Leyton Orient before the start of the 2011/12 season.
After almost a five-year spell with the Brisbane Road outfit, the right-footed defender joined Stevenage in the summer of 2018, and he has been playing for the Posh ever since. He made his Stevenage debut in a 2-2 draw with Tranmere Rovers in the 2018/19 season opener. At the end of the campaign the Scottish footballer was named the club’s Player of the Year.
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.
