James Jones is set to miss Barrow AFC’s remaining games of the season but boss Rob Kelly expects most of his other players to be fit and available.

Jones has a hip injury and caretaker manager Kelly admitted he is unlikely to feature against Southend and Exeter.

“James has had a scan, and I think the next two games will be too soon for him,” Kelly said.

The Bluebirds boss said there were some other 'bumps and bruises' in the squad but he expects plenty of options to pick from against the Shrimpers tomorrow.

A few knocks may give Kelly the opportunity to rotate, particularly in light of Barrow’s survival, but he said he would assess his senior ranks closely.

“We’ll have a look at them,” he said. “We’ve got Jamie Devitt, who’s had an ongoing thing with his hip, but he’s done well to come through and I’m hopeful that’ll be ok.

“Brad Barry tweaked a muscle in his leg but I’m optimistic. He got through a big chunk of the game on Tuesday.

“With Tom Davies, we’ll see how he is – he’s been better this week so will come into contention.

“Patrick Brough took a knock but I’m hoping it’s just a game knock and not so sore.

“We’ve got nothing else in there that’s leading me to say, ‘He’s definitely out’.

“Where we are in the season, you do get things that players play through.

“Southend will be the same, they’ll have players with a couple of games to go, they might have knocks, but they can get through it.”
