"Let's Be Positive" - Wild

17 February 2023

Pete Wild is sending out a message of positivity ahead of Saturday’s trip to Bradford City.

“I think moving on from the second half at Doncaster, we are going into game really positive,” said the Barrow boss.

“Hopefully we’re seeing that we turned corner on Tuesday, and we can build on how we go about business tomorrow.

“It’s important that we continue to be fresh minded and don’t let recent setbacks get us down.”

Despite a resilient second half showing, The Bluebirds suffered a 1-0 defeat at Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday evening. The result in South Yorkshire now leaves The Bluebirds without a win in six games, something that the Barrow boss stated he is dedicated to turning around.

“We know, working hard it will change.

“If we throw towel in, it won’t change. That’s the message we’ve been talking about to the players this week.”

Wild says that his side go into Saturday’s game with no pressure, and can play with freedom and the ability to express themselves.

“All the pressure is on them.

“We can play will freedom and express ourselves, and we know when we express ourselves we are at our best.

The Bluebirds were 3-2 victors over Bradford City at the SO Legal Stadium in August, a game which Barrow overturned a late setback from Andy Cook to take all three points from the fixture.

“We want to show Bradford that we are the team that they played earlier in the season.

“It’ll be great to get all the backing we can get from the fans, too. Stick with us, there’ll be times with our backs against the wall, which is where we need fans to stick and drive us forward.

“I’m hoping it can be a collective effort at Bradford."
