Mike Jones has admitted his frustration that fans won’t be able to enjoy this weekend’s Cumbrian derby at Brunton Park as he prepares to come head to head with his former club.
The midfield star joined Barrow during the summer after four seasons on the books at Carlisle United, where he remains popular with supporters.
However, the 33-year-old is hoping to put one over on his old team this weekend and help The Bluebirds build on their encouraging start to the new campaign.
Jones scored a wonder goal last time out as David Dunn’s men drew 1-1 with Colchester United at The Progression Solicitors Stadium on Saturday.
Now he has eyes on playing his part as Barrow look to clinch their first win at League Two level after returning to the EFL for the first time in almost 50 years this season.
“It’s just a shame fans can’t be there on Saturday because I am sure Barrow would have taken a lot,” he told iFollow Barrow.
“It will be the first time the two clubs have played each other for a long time and I will be really looking forward to it so hopefully we can go there and get our first win.
“It was disappointing not to get the three points last week.
“We’re on two points now and we could probably very easily be sitting on more but there are some good signs and we’re obviously going in the right direction.”
