Barrow welcoming Grimsby in 20th round of English Vanarama National League. Borrow currently occupies 16th position and after pretty good previous season and winning the title in Vanarama National league North and promotion int fifth league their main goal for this campaign is to avoid dropping into relegation zone. Barrow are playing in variable form in this season and now are coming to this match after three consecutive defeats, one in FA Cup against Fylde and two in league against Guiseley and Wrexham. They must try to get back on the track and end that series of bad results. Barrow has negative record against Grimsby and in last seven matches they suffered three defeats and got four draws, and judging by their form it will be really difficult for them to set up different result here. They scored 21 goal in previous 20 matches while conceded 38 and they must try to change something in their defense and try to save their net in this match. Barrow must show really great performances in this match to achieve positive outcome.
Grimsby on the other hand are at decent 9th position with 30 points from 19 matches, 8 points less than first placed Forest Green. Previous season they ended at 3rd position at the table and reached play offs for promotion but they failed in last round and suffered defeat against Bristol Rovers. Now they are coming here after convincing victory in firs round of FA Cup over St. Albans at home 5:1, while in previous round suffered narrow defeat at home against Cheltenham. Before that they also celebrated in final round of qualifications for FA Cup against Harrogate on the road 1:4. That defeat in previous round of league was their first defeat after thirteen matches, they showed decent performances in this campaign and for sure will give their best to win promotion into League 2. They must try to exploit Barrows bad form and try to take all three points here. Grimsby are playing great football in this season, with goal difference 38:19 they are one of the most effective teams in league while their defense also did a fine job so far.
Barrow are in bad shape, they failed to win in last four games and it will be very hard now against very confident opponent, while Grimsby will for sure try to continue with good results and if they show performances like so far they will for sure celebrate in this match on the road.
