BARROW AFC manager Pete Wild will be looking for his side to show their character once again this weekend.

The Bluebirds were left without a midweek game, when their clash with Bradford City at Holker Street was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

That was a missed opportunity to bounce back from their home defeat to Swindon Town last Saturday.

But they will have another chance when they make the long trip to face Gillingham at Priestfield this weekend.

And Wild will be expecting them to try grab it with both hands.

He said: “For the most part when we have suffered a defeat the lads have bounced straight back.

“We have a lot of experience in the squad, which I think really helps.

“It means that they have been here and seen it before, so they know what to expect.

“They know how to deal with these little bumps in the road as we call them.

“And they know how to make sure we learn from those bumps.”

Meanwhile, as expected the cancelled game against the Bantams, has been rescheduled for Tuesday, April 23.

This is the second time the game has been rearranged. The original clash was due to take place at Holker Street on February 24, but was called off just one hour before kick-off by referee Tom Nield.
