“IT’S still in our hands,” that was the message from Barrow AFC manager Pete Wild as they chase a play-off berth.

The Bluebirds face Bradford City this evening knowing that three points at Holker Street would seal the deal.

Speaking after the weekend’s disappointing 4-2 defeat away to Doncaster Rovers, Wild told the club’s official website: “It’s been a tough week, it’s been a long week and we haven’t got the rewards we wanted.

“But that’s life, and we go into two home games now, and it’s still in our hands.”

Tonight’s visitors still have a slim chance of making the play-offs. City would need to win both their remaining games (including this evening) and hope other results go their way.

For the Bluebirds they know victory over City or against already promoted Mansfield Town in the final game of the regular season on Saturday gets the job done.

Wild has stated previously that reaching the play-offs would be a superb achievement for the club.

And no doubt he will hoping that the individual errors which surfaced against Rovers at the weekend can be avoided tonight.

When the two sides met at Valley Parade back in November, it was Barrow who emerged 2-1 winners thanks to goals from Dom Telford and George Ray.

Ray misses out again this evening as he serves the final game of a three-match ban for his sending off against Gillingham.
