Tape up the floodlights, issue a no-fly zone and prepare for a battle. Barrow are up next at Prenton Park.
In our joyful two year existence in the non-league abyss, we have come to know Barrow as a physical and competitive team. In fact, they’ve been very effective when it comes to executing a bruising game plan that causes the best of teams some head aches.
That’s why it was somewhat surprising recently when Paul Cox left his position as Manager of the club, he’s now gone to Guiseley. So what do we expect of Barrow this weekend?
They’ve managed just two wins this season, not that we’re in a position to brag. They also won last time out, beating Boreham Wood 2-1. Their other win came against Woking.
Micky Moore will be in charge of the game, assisted by Marcus Bignot who arrived in the wake of Cox’s departure. Bignot was well-known as a defender in the Football League, playing for the likes of QPR and Port Vale among others.
Barrow have scored four more goals than Rovers this season, with most of those being spread around. Jordan White is top scorer with three. Other players to watch include gangly defender Moussa Diarra who scored FOR Tranmere last season with a wonderful own goal, while fellow defender Dan Jones will also be a threat on set-pieces having found the net a couple of times already this season.
As for Tranmere, well who knows how Micky will line-up. We’ll consider that tomorrow.
It won’t be pretty. Again.
