Pre Match Thoughts: Pete Wild

14 February 2023

Barrow boss Pete Wild is wanting his Barrow side to show more killer edge against Doncaster Rovers this evening.

The Bluebirds travel to South Yorkshire to face an in-form Doncaster Rovers in Sky Bet League Two, kick-off 7:45pm.

“We’re looking forward to the game,” said Wild.

“Having reviewed Saturday’s game, we’ve seen that 85% of what we tried to do worked, but we also know when we get into dangerous areas we need more killer edge."

Barrow come into this evening's game after a late defeat at home against Newport County on Saturday, with the visitors netting in the dying stages to snatch all three points.

“Unfortunately, we’ve lost 3 points in past two games due to set pieces in late moments.

“We’ve discussed with the players that they must take more responsibility in those pressure moments. 

“We know Doncaster will impose a real football threat to us, and will be full of confidence due to their recent results.

“My big message to players this morning was that performances are improving and we must not lose sight of this, and try to build on it in two difficult away games this week.”
