DARREN Edmondson has indicated that he will make changes to his Barrow AFC side at Altrincham tomorrow as he seeks better fortunes in front of goal.

Winger Dan Pilkington has trained all week and is in line for a recall after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Full-back George Williams was also ruled out of AFC’s 1-1 draw with Kidderminster last weekend after picking up a foot problem.

The defender was rested yesterday but it is hoped that he will train today when he will be further assessed.

If Williams is declared fit, Edmondson must decide whether to recall him or keep faith with playing Dave Symington at right-back.

AFC have only managed a total of 14 goals from their 13 National League games this season, the joint-17th worst record in the division.

Barrow boss Edmondson said: “I think there are big (selection) decisions all over to be honest.

“Pilks coming back is obviously a plus for the squad, and if George is also fit then that’s great.

“As it stands we have decisions to make because we’re not scoring enough goals. There are a lot of people pushing for starts at the moment, which is very good.

“If there are any changes I don’t think anybody can have any qualms because we are still conceding at the moment, plus on the flip side, we’re not scoring enough.”

Leading goalscorer Andy Cook has bagged more than half of AFC’s goals this term having scored on eight occasions in league action.

Edmondson added: “We’ve got to get goals from elsewhere, whether that’s from defenders coming for corners, wide players coming inside and taking chances or midfielders and other forwards scoring goals.

“The whole squad has got to start pitching in with goals.”

Altrincham can certainly be classed as banana-skin opposition having bloodied the nose of some of the National League’s big guns this season.

Lee Sinnott’s men have secured wins against top-even sides Grimsby Town, Tranmere Rovers and Cheltenham Town. The part-timers’ only other triumph arrived last weekend when they carved out a 1-0 success at Boreham Wood.

But they sit sixth-from-bottom in the table, having lost seven of their opening 13 league games

Edmondson said: “I think that sometimes inconsistency can come from being part-time, and sometimes what financial benefits gives you is inconsistent players.

“So all managers in this league at the moment will be frustrated by what their group of players are bringing because, with the exception of one or two clubs, there have been a lot of inconsistent starts this year.

“We’ve got three games in a week so we’ve got to make sure that we’re very consistent in what we do, that we don’t give Alty any time to build some momentum.

“They’ll pass the ball, they’ve got some good players in there and they’re producing some positive results.

“The tempo in our second-half performance against Kidderminster is what we need to achieve right from the first whistle.”
