Pete Wild has weighed in with his thoughts ahead of Barrow’s clash with Colchester United in Sky Bet League Two, a game that is a "chance to right the wrongs".
Barrow come into the game fresh from a 5-1 defeat at Carlisle United on Tuesday night, a game that the boss is keen to keep in the rear view mirror, but ensure that his side learn valuable lessons from the loss.
“We obviously had some soul searching to do over the last few days, both mentally and tactically,” said Wild.
“It’s been a mix of reflection and honest conversation, along with a few honest truths delivered by myself to the group.
“The players have fully bought into what has been said, and hopefully now we can drive forward in this last part of the season.
“The good thing about football is that there’s always another game right round the corner to right the wrongs from the previous game.”
After defeats in the last two outings, the Bluebirds boss affirmed that his side have a desire to ensure this campaign doesn’t just fade away, and to ensure Barrow have something to fight for right until the end.
“There’s a determination in the group to not let this season fizzle out.
“We all are all fully aware we have to be the best version of us against Colchester, and hopefully what comes with that is a positive result.”
He is also is reflecting on a positive January in terms of transfer activity. The Bluebirds welcomed Elliot Newby, Rory Feely, Jake Young and Ged Garner to the Club; moves that Wild is very happy with.
“First of all I’d like to thank the Board for their support through the January transfer window.
“We’ve been able to add some real quality to the group, which we hope will make us stronger at both ends of the pitch.
On a final note, Wild has confirmed that goalkeeper Scott Moloney’s season has been cut short due to injury.
“Scott Moloney has unfortunately broken his wrist, which means unfortunately his season is over.
“He’ll stay around the group supporting the lads and doing his rehab.
“We’ll fully support him and ensure he regains full fitness.”
