Barrow AFC manager Ian Evatt had no problem with the way striker Scott Quigley reacted to being subbed off against Chorley on Tuesday night, as he looks to get back on the goal trail at Maidenhead United tomorrow.

By Quigley’s standards since he joined the Bluebirds, he’s on something of a goal drought, with the 2-2 draw marking his fourth game without scoring, hence his frustration upon being replaced by Jack Hindle late on.

Despite him not finding the net in a month, Evatt is satisfied with the 27-year-old’s level of performances and has backed him to add to his tally of 12 goals for the campaign before long.

Evatt said: “He’s an emotional character and I have to say that was in no way shape or form aimed at me, it was his own frustrations.

“He wants to win and he wants to score in every game. He’s going through a bit of a barren run at the moment, but he’s still doing so much and the goals will come again.

“People have different characters and you either show your emotions quietly and keep them within yourself or you can be very visual with your reaction and how you’re feeling.

“Scott is a heart-on-the-sleeve kind of guy - he lets everybody know how he’s feeling, so he was disappointed and I expect him to be disappointed because he just wants to win.”

Apart from club captain Josh Granite (broken collarbone), Barrow have largely a clean bill of health for the trip to York Road, where Evatt is hoping they won’t try and force things in attack the way they did in Tuesday night’s 2-2 draw against Chorley.

He said: “We need to work on our pattern of building attacks, especially when teams are sat in and wanting us to play that killer pass too early or cross the ball from deep.

“We have to find ways of combining in the final third, passing and moving it quick, keeping our width, creating one-v-one situations on the edge of their box and taking full advantage.”
