Barrow go into today’s game against Bradford City on a high following their 4-2 win against Mansfield Town on Tuesday.

After their first league in the Football League since 1972, The Bluebirds are now looking to make it two wins out of two against The Bantams, which could move them into 15th, ahead of today’s visitors.

Ahead of the three o’clock kick-off at Holker Street, manager David Dunn has revealed some players are hoping to make their return from injury.

Dunn said: “We have got a couple back.

“Scott Quigley is nearly back.

“Kgose Ntlhe will be touch and go.

“Obviously the lads who have been out a little longer, like Lewis Hardcastle and Tom Beadling, will take more time, but generally it is all good.”

The visitors come into today’s game without a win in three games.

On Tuesday night, Stuart McCall’s side were beaten 1-0 away at Bolton Wanderers, managed by former Barrow boss Ian Evatt.

Despite this, Dunn insisted that he was expecting a difficult game.

He said: “I don’t look at Bradford not picking up points in the last couple of games.

“They have got some good experienced players and they are going to be dangerous so we will have to be right at it.”

However, top scorer Lee Novak, alongside Zeli Ismael, will be unavailable for the away side as the two continue their recovery from injury.

McCall’s side will have Reece Staunton available, whereas Gareth Evans and Levi Sutton could both feature after their injuries.

Despite this, Dunn is confident of securing a result.

“I am always confident, if we turn up and we do what we have been doing the last couple of weeks, we are capable of beating anyone," he said.

“It will be a tough game. They are a good team in transition, as are we.

“It will be a big challenge for us as a lot of these games are for us.

“But one that if we play the way that we know we can, we will be more than capable of beating anyone if were right.”

The two sides last met on 8th April 1970 in Division Three, when Don McEvoy’s Barrow side drew 3-3 at Bradford’s Valley Parade.

Bradford’s last two visits to Holker Street have seen them leave Cumbria with all three points, recording 1-0 wins in March 1967 and December 1969.
