David Dunn has backed his players to extend their unbeaten run on home soil this weekend – as long as they switch on from the first whistle against Forest Green Rovers.
The Bluebirds have yet to taste league defeat in six outings at The Progression Solicitors Stadium and come in to Saturday’s game on the back of a hugely encouraging performance at high-flying Cambridge United.
With Forest Green’s visit to Cumbria representing the first of at least three consecutive home fixtures in the coming week, Dunn wants his team to set the tone for what lies ahead with a strong display against the Gloucestershire outfit.
“We’ve watched them and I know a couple of their players,” the Barrow boss told iFollow.
“I think us and Forest Green are the two teams that have the most passes in the division so far, so I would think it’s going to be a good football match.
“I always say that if we’re at it and we’re ready, which we should be, then we will give anyone in this league a game and I think you saw that away at Cambridge last week.
“It’s not always black and white, other things in games can stop you performing, but the way we’ve gone about it recently has been pleasing and anyone watching can see what we’re trying to do.
“I don’t want to tempt fate but we’re unbeaten in the league at home this season and that’s a record we want to keep hold of.
“Teams who come here know they will be in for a tough game and we want opponents thinking that – but if they are, we have to make sure that we’re on it from the first minute.”
