Barrow vs Salford City
Tuesday 28th February, kick-off 7:45pm

SO Legal Stadium
Sky Bet League Two

Formed in 1940 the club reached the Football League system for the first time in 2018-19, following the takeover of Project 92 in 2014. Salford would then have a documentary that displayed the route to bringing the club up the divisions. 

The Ammies' era of success in the 1970s saw them become a major force in local divisions, winning the Manchester League Premier Division on four occasions, the Lancashire FA Amateur Cup three times, the Manchester Challenge Cup twice, and the Manchester FA Intermediate Cup twice also.

Under the guidance of Graham Alexander, Salford would enjoy Wembley success, beating AFC Fylde 3-0 in the final to achieve Football League Status, becoming the first club to gain back-to-back promotions in achieving this milestone.

They would be back in 2021 for the delayed 2020 EFL Trophy Final, where they would win their first trophy as a Football League Club, defeating League One Portsmouth on penalties.

Head To Head
Within the Football League, Barrow and Salford have only faced each other on 5 occasions, with The Ammies taking 3 wins from 5 EFL matches.  A late Jordan Stevens strike from the edge of the area salvaged Barrow a point at the Peninsula Stadium on Boxing Day.

The man in the middle this evening at the SO Legal Stadium will be Scott Oldham. He’ll be joined by Peter Gooch and Paul Newhouse on the lines, and Simon Mather will be on the touchline as Fourth Official.

Oldham’s last assignment involving Barrow was against Doncaster Rovers in September, when The Bluebirds convincingly dispatched Donny with a 2-0 victory.
