Barrow AFC are still confident they can pick up a positive result against Leyton Orient, according to striker Jacob Blyth, as they look to claim another National League scalp.

Despite currently being becalmed in mid-table, Ian Evatt’s side have repeatedly shown this season that they are capable of giving the teams at the top of the table a run for their money.

This was first displayed during a 2-2 draw against the O’s at Brisbane Road last August and since then they have defeated Solihull Moors and Salford City, whilst also doing a league double over Sutton United.

Orient arrive at Holker Street tonight five points behind leaders Wrexham, albeit with two games in hand, as they look to return to the Football League after a two-year absence.

Blyth said: “We fancy ourselves against anyone in this league – we feel like we can beat everyone, so it’s one that we’re really looking forward to.

“The last Tuesday night game at home [against Wrexham] was a brilliant performance from us.

“Again, it was another goalless draw, but we build on these and we always say that if you have a clean sheet then it’s the best way to win a game.

“We’ve just got to start making better decisions in the final third, myself included, and hopefully soon it will click.”

After taking too long to get going in their 3-1 defeat at Barnet last Saturday, the Bluebirds will need to start on the front foot this time and avoid a repeat of their sloppy opening at The Hive.

It was only after Kyle Jameson pulled a goal back with ten minutes left that they showed that they showed what they are capable of and they threatened to narrow the deficit further.

Blyth believes they can take confidence in how they finished that game and has urged his teammates to begin their clash with Orient in the same manner.

He said: “I still think we had a fair few chances after we scored on Saturday and it gave us a real big boost.

“I thought for the last 15 minutes we were brilliant, we moved the ball really well, getting crosses in, but obviously we’d given ourselves a mountain to climb, going three goals down.

“Any little spells in games where you’re playing well will always give you a boost, so now we’ll dust ourselves off and get ready for Tuesday.”
