After putting in a good display in their victory over Eastleigh last Saturday, Barrow AFC probably won't be ringing the changes for tonight's match at Stockport County, but manager Ian Evatt insists the time will come for other players in his squad.

Although, Evatt changed the formation for the 2-0 win against the Spitfires at Holker Street to 3-4-3, he only made one personnel change from the 3-0 loss against Harrogate four days previously, with Scott Quigley coming in for Lewis Hardcastle.

It was a move that paid off as the striker signed from Blackpool during the summer seemed to relish the physical battle on what was a filthy day, weather-wise, and he crowned his performance by opening his Bluebirds account in stoppage time.

So far, 12 of AFC's squad have started a National League game this season, meaning the likes of Oliver Greaves, Jack Hindle and Olly Dyson, amongst others, have had to wait their turn.

Evatt said: "It's a long, long season and we have to keep everybody on board and everyone buying into what we're doing.

"Last Saturday wasn't a day for Oli Greaves, who is a fantastic footballer, it wasn't that kind of game for Jack Hindle or for Lewis Hardcastle.

"It was a game where, with the weather conditions and the manner of the defeat last Tuesday, we had to tough it out, scrap it out and fight.

"That's not discredit to those [that didn't play] because they're excellent footballers and their strength is with the ball, not having to win tackles, win second balls and headers.

"It might not have been their day on Saturday, but it will be their day at some point this season."

Evatt has revealed one of the motivational tactics he and his staff used before the Eastleigh game, which led to Barrow recording their first win of the season and it involved making them face their 'critics'.

Evatt said: "Social media can by an evil thing at times and some of the players really took some stick last week.

"We, as a management group, decided to pin all the tweets up that they've had on the dressing room wall to show them what people were saying about them and they responded in the right manner.

"Hopefully they've silenced a few with their performance last Saturday."
