Sports Mole previews Tuesday's League Two clash between Barrow and Salford City, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.
Sports Mole

On Tuesday, Barrow will welcome Salford City to Holker Street, and the hosts enter the contest in 21st position in League Two.

Meanwhile, the visitors are in 10th place, and will be hoping that they can pick up a victory to bridge the seven-point gap to the playoffs.

Match preview

After picking up a crucial 2-0 away victory against Colchester United, the Bluebirds would have entered the weekend contest with Mansfield Town in a buoyant mood.

That confidence took a hit inside the first minute though, as Rhys Oates opened the scoring for the Stags, but to Barrow's credit they hit back through James Jones.

Despite levelling the contest, Barrow could not prevent Steven McLaughlin and Jordan Bowery from finding the net, which condemned Mark Cooper's side to a disappointing 3-1 defeat.

Although the Bluebirds currently occupy a lowly position in League Two, they do possess a seven-point buffer to the drop zone, but having won just two games in their previous 15 league fixtures, there may be some concern that they could still be drawn into a relegation battle.

Having scored only six goals in their last 10 league games, Cooper needs his side to improve in the final third if they are to move away from danger.

As for Salford, their hopes of reaching the playoffs took a hit at the weekend when they suffered a heavy defeat at home to Colchester.

Goals from Luke Chambers, Myles Kenlock and Corie Andrews helped Colchester claim an impressive 3-0 win, and as a result of that defeat, the Ammies find themselves seven points adrift of the top seven.

If Salford are to close the gap to the playoff places, Gary Bowyer's side need to find an element of consistency, and they will be aiming to start a run of positive results on Tuesday when they try to clinch their third consecutive victory over Barrow after winning 1-0 in their previous two meetings.

Three wins from their previous five away games also offers hope to the visitors, especially as they kept three clean sheets in all of those victories.

If the Ammies are to emerge victorious on Tuesday, their best work may be seen early in the encounter with nine of Salford's 14 away league goals coming in the first half this season.
