Head coach Paul Crarey has encouraged supporters to attend in large numbers for Barrow Raiders' home game against Bradford Bulls on Sunday, which represents Last Chance Saloon for their survival hopes.

The Raiders are on the brink of relegation from the Betfred Championship, as they are three points behind third-from-bottom Widnes Vikings with only four games left.

If they to realistically avoid joining Rochdale Hornets in League One, they are going to need to defeat the Bulls while at the same time hold out for a few favours from elsewhere in the weekend's other fixtures.

With Bradford set to bring a large travelling contingent with them to Craven Park, Crarey is keen for Raiders' fans to contribute what is likely to be a raucous atmosphere due and get behind his injury-hit team.

Crarey said: "We've got a couple of home games left and we'll need the people of Barrow to come and support the lads, who are giving everything that they've got for the town.

"Whether we'll get a side out this week, we'll be lucky, but some of the fringe players will be coming in and be giving it their all.

"Everyone has been good since they've come in, especially when we went to Leigh away [in the 1895 Cup] - Tom Loxam and people like that haven't had a run for a while.

"Then you've got people like Adam Ford - I've promised Fordy a start for the game at Toronto, so he'll make his debut there. There's all to play for and everything to look forward to for the club."

Despite struggling for numbers in some areas of the field, Crarey will be wanting Barrow to produce a performance similar to the one that saw them go down swinging against York City Knights last Sunday.

Raiders lost the reverse fixture against the Bulls 26-14 at Odsal on East Monday.
