Promotion hopefuls Barrow face a stern test of their mettle tonight as they travel to Macclesfield in the National League’s only match.
Barrow announced three new faces yesterday as Paul Cox prepares for the packed run-in. Blackburn Rovers have leant them youth players Matty Platt and Connor Thomson, whilst they’ve also borrowed Luke Burke from Wigan Athletic.
Barrow are currently 14 points behind the Imps in seventh position, but just three behind Dover with a game in hand and superior goal difference. Macclesfield are in ninth, just three points behind Barrow and they too have a game in hand. It’s all tightening up in the battle for those coveted play-off spots, with both Gateshead and Macclesfield hoping to gate crash the party as Aldershot have done in recent weeks.
