Barrow AFC will be without striker Byron Harrison for tomorrow's FA Cup tie against Solihull Moors due to a minor strain picked up in training last week.

Harrison would have missed last Saturday's match against Dover Athletic had it been played and he absence means the Bluebirds' attacking options are slightly reduced for what is a clash of two in-form teams.

The 32-year-old, who is in his second spell at Holker Street, was likely to have been on the bench, given the prolific form of Scott Quigley, but he is not expected to be out for too long.

Manager Ian Evatt said: "As it stands, we've got a fully-fit squad, apart from Byron, who was injured last Friday and wouldn't been available for Dover on Saturday.

"It's not as bad as first feared, so we're looking at another week to ten days before he's available again.

"He picked up a slight groin strain in training, but he is improving really well and he'll be back for us soon."

Evatt is unlikely to make too many changes for the match against Solihull, given how the players will be desperate to return to action for what will be for the first time in 11 days, after the match against Dover was postponed at short notice.

He has, however, had to deal with one or two issues in the build-up, as he looks to win a cup tie as a manager for the first time, having lost the two from last season against Chorley and FC Halifax Town.

Evatt said: "We've had a virus affect one or two of the players this week - I'd rather not say which ones - and there's been a family issue with one of our players and he just needed time off.

"That was sad, but family must come first and it always will, so we need to look after him.

"And then we've had one or two illnesses in camp, which haven't been ideal, but we seem to be getting over them at the right time of the week, so hopefully we can make sure that we're full systems go for Saturday."
