IAN Evatt is convinced Barrow AFC should have taken all three points when they entertained Bromley in the Vanarama National League on Saturday.

In the end he was left a rue a goalkeeping error which gave the visitors their equaliser and proved enough to ensure it finished 1-1 at Holker Street after Dior Angus put the Bluebirds ahead.

“I thought we really moved the ball well at times, In the first half and the last 25 minutes of the second half,” said Evatt. “We started a bit slow in the second half. We were against the wind and they went on high pressure, playing direct football.

“It took us a while to get to grips at what they were doing.

“A goalkeeping error cost us, but Joel Dixon has had a fantastic run of form so we can’t put the blame at anyone else.

“We probably should have scored in the last 20 minutes when we had taken over but, at least, it is another point. I thought the crowd really backed the lads in the second half and boosted us on towards the end.

“We tried to play the best we can but we just couldn’t quite get that second goal. We were denied a stonewall penalty in the first half and at 2-0 the game would have been over

“We huffed and puffed but it was a decent performance.”

Evatt hopes to have more options for this Saturday’s trip to play-off contenders Sutton United, with up to four members of his squad expected to be available again.

“A load of players will be available – hopefully Reece Norrington-Davies will be back, Brian Wilson definitely back, Lee Molyneux available again, Kyle Jameson available again," said Evatt.

"All of a sudden the squad looks a lot stronger.”
