Barrow’s visit to Nethermoor is the first of a triple header of fixtures in LS20 this week, kick-off on Tuesday night is at 7:45pm.

Segregation will be in place for this fixture with Barrow fans placed in the Railway End and second seated stand of Nethermoor Park entering via turnstiles 7 & 8.

Tickets are available to buy online here or at the turnstiles.

After three postponements due to the poor weather conditions over recent months at Nethermoor this fixture kick starts an action packed week with Dagenham and Redbridge visiting on Thursday night and Woking the opponents on Saturday on home soil.

The Cumbrians were originally due to visit Nethermoor on 20th January but now the fixture looks to go ahead nearly three months later than scheduled.

The Lions go into the final five games needing maximum points and a 20 goal swing to secure safety in the Vanarama National League following Saturday’s defeat at Solihull Moors.

Last time out at home Maidstone were the visitors and a 0-0 draw followed a rare away win at Hartlepool.

Barrow have struggled to find consistency and picked up their first home win last week since 28th October with the majority of their points coming on the road since then.

They sit in 21st place just one point behind Saturday’s opponents Woking but having two games in hand on the Surrey based club.

Following Saturday’s fixture at one of his former clubs Sean St Ledger said “I think the timings of the goals killed us the most, we hadn’t started well in our last few games. I asked us if we could start better and we did that but then we gave away a rubbish goal from a throw-in.”

“When you’re bottom of the table the confidence almost gets sucked out of you straight away.”

There was however a revival in the second half but the Interim Manager was left frustrated “We got the goal back to make it 2-1 and almost gave a goal away straight away.”

The former Solihull defender commented on his old side “I don’t think Solihull did anything special from open play but neither did we really. All throughout last week I have tried to enforce that we pass the ball, what we need to do moving forward is take what we are doing in training into the games.”

Knowing the Lions are all but relegated Sean said “Regardless of what happens we have to play with pride and wear the colours with pride, simple as that regardless of what position we are in.”

“You have to play with desire, as a footballer you are very privileged to have this job.”

Ticket upgrades to a Club Classic package are available until 12pm Monday.
