Scott Quigley got himself off the mark in Barrow AFC colours against Eastleigh last Saturday and his captain Josh Granite was delighted to see it come good for him during that game.

It hasn't been the easiest start to life at Holker Street for Quigley, who arrived from Blackpool during the off-season, as he has struggled to find his best form, with a troublesome knee injury during pre-season not helping matters.

Having started the midweek defeat against Harrogate on the bench, the 26-year-old was recalled for the 2-0 win against the Spitfires and set up John Rooney's opener before settling the game in stoppage time.

Granite said: "Quigs will be the first to admit that he hasn't started great, but he was good on Saturday. It was a good performance by him overall - he held the ball up well, he was a target man for us and it was great for him to get his goal, which was a great finish from far away."

Granite was just as, if not more, pleased that the rejigged back three kept the Bluebirds' first clean sheet of the season.

He said: "That's my role in the team; trying to organise the defence and the rest of the team to get a clean sheet and I'm really pleased.

"I thought the lads were excellent, playing with a new formation. Brad Barry and Josh Kay were superb in giving us energy out wide and me, Patrick Brough and Sam Hird in the middle was quite solid."
