David Dunn has challenged his team to turn promise in to points this weekend as they welcome Colchester United to The Progression Solicitors Stadium.
The Barrow boss was frustrated to see his side come away from Newport empty-handed last time out, particularly after they had registered such an encouraging first half display in South Wales.
Now The Bluebirds have tucked another positive week of training under their belts and return to home soil on Saturday and Dunn is eyeing a first league win of the new campaign.
“I know we were a bit disappointed not to get anything out of the game last week but, as a group, I know we will grow in to this season and get better as it goes on,” he told iFollow.
“I just tell the lads to keep going. A lot of the stuff we’re doing is working – teams are finding us hard to break down, we’ve looked a threat on the counter-attack and we have played some really good football at times.
“But it’s no good playing well and being hard to beat but then coming away with nothing. We understand we need to get points on the board, that’s simple, but there have been a lot of positives to take so far.
“Colchester will be difficult. Their front three is a handful, they will be hard to break down and they try and play football.
“But, again, I am more than confident that if we play to the best of our abilities then we can be more than a match for anyone in this league.
“Three points on Saturday would get us up that league table so that’s what we’re all focused on getting now.”
