Barrow AFC will be up against a team made up of locally-based players when they face a Furness Select XI at Holker Street tonight and manager Ian Evatt it represents a different sort of test from the friendly against Blackburn.

Last Saturday's match against Rovers was almost a free hit for the Bluebirds, as they were up against a team three divisions above them and they ended up giving a good account of themselves in the 2-1 defeat.

The Championship side dominated possession in the second half - not something AFC are that used to - but the tables are likely to be turned, with AFC set to have plenty of the ball this time.

You'd never say a team is under pressure to win a friendly, but nonetheless Barrow will be expected to win well.

Evatt said: "Of course we expect to win on Tuesday, there's no doubt about that. Did we expect to win the game on Saturday? Probably not, but I thought we gave a very good account of ourselves and we should have been winning the game at half-time.

"Tuesday is more to give the lads some time in possession, really. It was always going to be difficult to dominate possession against Blackburn Rovers, who are a very good team in the Championship.

"That was going to be tough and Tuesday will give us some more confidence in possession, some more passing patterns and we'll look at that before going to Workington on Saturday."
