We turn the focus on this evening's action with a full and in-depth preview of Salford City's League Two visit to The Dunes Hotel Stadium.

Barrow v Salford City
Tuesday 25th January 2022, 7.45pm

Sky Bet League Two

In Opposition
Salford City will arrive at The Dunes Hotel Stadium this evening looking to shake off the disappointment of a surprise defeat at the weekend.

The Ammies had been in good form from November through to the New Year but have now lost two of their last three games, including the weekend’s 3-0 humbling at home to struggling Colchester United.

As a result, Gary Bowyer’s men find themselves seven points shy of the play-off places ahead of kick-off and in need of a return to their best form if they are to force a way into the promotion shake-up.

One To Watch
Matthew Lund has made a big impact at Salford City this season since joining the club last summer following his departure from relegated Rochdale.

The midfield schemer has started all but two League Two games for The Ammies for far in 2021/22 and has helped himself to five goals along the way.

A former Stoke City trainee, the 31-year-old now has bags of EFL experience and will be one of the key players for City as they look to drive towards the top seven in the coming months.

Head To Head
Tonight’s fixture will be just the fifth competitive meeting between the two sides and the third played at EFL level after the two encounters last term.

The Ammies did the double over Barrow in 2021/22, running out 1-0 winners at The Peninsula Stadium before repeating that result in Cumbria later in the campaign.

Of course, The Bluebirds have beaten Salford on home turf in the past – the dramatic 3-2 triumph in December 2018 will live long in the memory for Kemy Agustien’s spectacular strike and Jacob Blyth’s glorious winner.

Andy Haines is on the whistle for this evening’s action against Salford City in what will be his first visit of the season to The Dunes Hotel Stadium.

An experienced official, Haines oversaw two Bluebirds fixtures last term as he watched us draw 1-1 with Leyton Orient in October and presided over our 2-0 home defeat to Port Vale in April 2021.

He was in charge at Vale Park last Saturday as The Valiants were beaten 3-1 by Swindon Town, while he was on Fourth Official duty for Morecambe’s 3-2 win over Wycombe Wanderers at the weekend.

Tickets for tonight’s game are available in advance online right now, from Main Reception from 12noon (card payment only) and then from the Fan Zone Ticket Booth from 5pm (cash and card payment).

Report: Barrow 0 Salford City 2

Barrow's Jordan Stevens in action against Salford City

Barrow slipped to a third successive home defeat as Salford City ran out winners at The Dunes Hotel Stadium for a second season in a row on Tuesday night.

Ash Hunter lashed City in front from a free kick early in the second half before Remeao Hutton turned through his own goal in stoppage time to underline another frustrating night for The Bluebirds.

Mark Cooper made three changes to his starting eleven for the encounter, with Kgosi Ntlhe featuring for the first time since suffering a knee injury in August and Josh Kay and Jordan Stevens both restored to the line-up.

Salford City engineered the first opportunity of the night when a well-worked corner saw the ball pulled back to Ryan Watson on the edge of the area, but his low strike was blocked by the Barrow defence.

However, there wasn’t much in the way of goalmouth action during a first half high on work rate but low on chances as both sides battled to find their creative best.

Remeao Hutton slipped an incisive ball in behind to set Jordan Stevens away down the right and, when his cross was half cleared, Hutton ran on to it and drilled a shot on goal which was fizzing toward the far corner before a Salford defender got in the way.

At the other end a cross from the right was met on the dive by City’s mighty striker Matt Smith, but his header bounced up and over Paul Farman’s cross bar.

Ash Hunter, who scored the winner for The Ammies at The Dunes Hotel Stadium last season, tried the spectacular again when a corner was cleared as far as him on the edge of the area, but his looping volley dropped well wide of the post.

City had a great chance shortly after the restart when Donald Love laid the ball square for Smith on the edge of the box, but the Ammies front man blazed his effort wastefully over the bar.

Ollie Banks then decided to try his luck with another long-range free kick only to see his thunderbolt from 30 yards brilliantly palmed away at full stretch by City keeper Tom King.

City then profited from a free kick of their own 25 yards from goal on the hour mark which was struck well by Hunter, and it found its way past Farman and into the bottom corner of the net to make it 1-0 to the visitors.

Farman then had to make a wonderful save to deny City a second when a corner was again worked to the edge of the area for Watson and this time his curling effort was wonderfully tipped over the bar by the Bluebirds keeper.

City could have extended their lead in the final minute of normal time when substitute Stephen Kelly found space to let fly from twenty yards, but Farman went across to his left to parry the shot away to safety.

And Bowyer’s men did make the points safe in injury time when Conor McAleny was freed down the right-hand side and he fizzed a cross into the box which was turned into his own net by Hutton to make it 2-0.
