David Dunn has admitted he is spending every waking moment entirely focused on guiding his Barrow side back to winning ways as they head to Crawley Town this weekend.
The Bluebirds boss has been frustrated by the recent run of three successive League Two defeats but remains confident that things will quickly turn once they get the next three points.
Less than a month ago, Barrow earned plaudits from their performance in the draw at high-flying Cambridge United, which was followed up by a strong display on home soil against Forest Green.
However, things didn’t develop as Dunn would have liked on the back of those encouraging outings and he knows it is now time for the team to start delivering on a more consistent basis.
“I can’t switch off at the moment because I am so committed to turning this around, so I think and ponder every kind of scenario on the pitch,” Dunn told iFollow Barrow.
“We’ve had a good week in training but all that matters now is the result because ultimately it’s about winning games and we need to go on a run soon, that’s for sure.
“We’re all really positive and looking forward to it but the reality is that my job is to win football matches so, as much there has been a lot of good stuff, we need that win on a Saturday and everything else will fall in to place.”
Weekend opponents Crawley Town currently lie 15th in the table but are without a league win of their own in the last six ahead of Barrow’s arrival at The People’s Pension Stadium.
However, Dunn has studied The Red Devils enough to know that they will be tough opposition this weekend, particularly given the form of 12-goal front man Max Watters.
“They’ve got pacey forwards, they have a really good shape and they score goals,” he explained.
“They have way of playing and they’re pretty good at it – and they had a great result against Wimbledon in the FA Cup the other week obviously.
“Like all League Two games, it’s going to be nip and tuck. It will be tight, but we do firmly believe that if we can just tweak a few things then we aren’t a million miles away.”
