Barrow’s Recent Form:

The Bluebirds go into the game on the back of a midweek defeat to Leyton Orient. Despite having a number of fantastic chances, we found ourselves 3-0 down in the second half though a spirited fightback brought it back to 3-2 with 15 minutes to go. Despite pressing for a more than deserved equaliser, it wasn’t to be as the East London side headed home with all three points. We sit in 13th place with 46 points from 36 games.

Last Time Out:

Our games against Aldershot almost always produce goals and excitement, including late drama.

Last season at the Furness Building Society Stadium a hat trick from Adi Yussuf secured all three points for the Bluebirds in a 3-1 win. You can watch highlights of that one here:

Earlier this season the Bluebirds ended a blip in form in style at Aldershot, a perfect away performance giving us a 2-0 win. Watch highlights of that one here:
