THAT’S WHAT HE SAID
The league table suggests this is as tough as it gets, bottom playing away against top. But football is never as simple as that. We’ve picked up two excellent results in the last couple of games, and although Barrow are the favourites, we go into the game with plenty of confidence and we know we have to produce another performance like Saturday to give ourselves a chance of securing another three points – Jamie Vermiglio
