Barrow AFC will have defender Kyle Jameson and striker Rhys Turner available again when they welcome Dover Athletic to Holker Street tomorrow.

Turner is back from the latest of what has been an unfortunate string of injuries this season – the hamstring strain he suffered in the warm-up before the away game at Wrexham last month.

Jameson’s absence was a slightly shorter one, as he only missed last week’s draw at Dagenham & Redbridge, while his fellow centre-back Sam Hird should be fit to play after sustaining a painful blow during that game.

Manager Ian Evatt said: “It’s something Kyle’s been carrying for a while now, he’s had a bit of a sore knee, but that’s improved and settled down now, so he’ll be back available for Saturday.

“We’ve got Rhys Turner back available again, which his pleasing, while Sam Hird took a bit of a whack to his testicle at Dagenham, so that’s been like a grapefruit all week. He’s been putting lots of ice on that, which isn’t comfortable, but hopefully he’ll be okay for Saturday.”

Evatt believes Hird’s influence will continue to grow after he was part of a defensive performance against the Daggers that saw them limited to very few chances.

“Sam’s going to get better and better - he missed a lot of football over the last 18 months, but he’s a very good experienced player,” Evatt said.

“We haven’t seen the best of him yet, but hopefully that is to come.

“For all Dagenham’s play, they didn’t really create too much and that was down to how well we defended.”

Barring any more injuries against Dover, the Bluebirds should have close to a fully-fit squad available to them for their last few games of the season, with several players on the brink of returning.

Connor Brown (ankle) and Jacob Blyth (hamstring) are both close to a comeback, although they’re not quite ready to face the Whites, while Brian Wilson (calf) and Dior Angus (ankle) will also sit out the game.
