Barrow and Harrogate Town have endured two very contrasting starts to life in League Two and the Bluebirds' stay could soon be over unless they find some form in the final third of the season.

Following Michael Jolley's dismissal in late February, the hosts have picked up their first win in over a month under caretaker manager, Rob Kelly.

However, Barrow have lost five of their last six games and may have their work cut out against Simon Weaver's side who have won four of their last six, keeping three clean sheets in the process.

Barrow come into the game occupying the final relegation spot with two games in hand, whilst Harrogate are sat comfortably in 12th. Three points for Kelly's side could see them leapfrog Southend United and temporarily escape the relegation zone, depending on the Shrimpers' result.

  • Team news

Mike Jones misses out through injury for the Bluebirds. Barrow will also be without Tom Beadling; the midfielder is still recovering following a groin strain sustained against Cambridge United in early February.

Goalkeeper Joe Cracknell remains unavailable for the visitors and fellow long-term absentee Mitch Roberts is also still injured.

  • Predicted lineups

Barrow: Dixon; Brough, Thomas, Jones, Eardley, Taylor, Banks, Ntlhe, Barry, Quigley, James.

Harrogate: Belshaw; Francis, Smith, Hall, Fallowfield, Falkingham, Thomson, McPake, Power, Muldoon, March.

  • Ones to watch

Scott Quigley

Barrow have turned to Scott Quigley for inspiration on many occasions this season, as reflected in his late winner against Oldham Athletic last weekend. 

The forward has scored five goals in his last ten games, winning his side seven points in the process. 

The hosts could turn to Quigley again on Tuesday evening, as they look to take all three points from the Sulphurites on home turf.

Josh March

Josh March has hit a good run of form recently, registering five goals and one assist in his last eight league games for Harrogate.

The 23-year-old has started Town's last seven games and played a huge role in the recent surge in form that has Simon Weaver keeping one eye on the playoffs. 

The forward will be looking to increase his goal tally against Kelly's struggling Barrow side on Tuesday evening.

  • Past meetings

Harrogate came away victors the last time the two sides faced; a 1-0 win at Wetherby Road for Tuesday's visitors.

The last time Barrow beat Town at home in the league was the start of the 2013/14 National League season; a win tomorrow would end a run stretching nearly eight years.
