📝 Match Preview: Barrow (A)

All you need to know ahead of our trip to Cumbria

8 February 2021

Exeter City will be hoping it's second time lucky as they make the mammoth trip to the Progression Solicitors Stadium on Tuesday night to face Barrow in a 7pm kick-off.

The match was originally due to be played on January 2 but was called off due to an unplayable surface.

The Grecians will be looking to make it a trio of wins after beating Stevenage and Bradford City over the last few days. 

The match against Barrow is the first meeting of the two sides since 1972, where City registered a huge 7-1 win.

Matt Jay's thoughts

One of our Own, Matt Jay notched his thirteenth strike of an impressive season so far on Saturday as the Grecians recorded back-to-back wins in League Two.

Ahead of the match, Matt said that the Grecians go in to the encounter with great confidence: "The win over Bradford will stand us in good stead and we are looking to build on it.

"Another three points is up for grabs and it's something we are really looking forward to - we go up there with a bit of confidence."

The first Football League game played at Holker Street was against Stockport County in 1921, where 9,750 budding spectators were in attendance. The capacity record came in 1954 when over 16,000 fans watched Barrow’s 2-2 draw with Swansea Town (* Now City) in the FA Cup.

In 2019 the ground was renamed the Progressions Solicitors Stadium for sponsorship reasons.

Barrow's Last Match

Barrow AFC 0 Cambridge United 2 | 6/2/21 | EFL Sky Bet League Two

Barrow fell to defeat at home for the first time since December as Cambridge United consolidated their position at the top of League Two with a 2-0 victory in Cumbria thanks to goals from Paul Mullin and Joe Ironside.

Previous Meeting:

Exeter City 7 Barrow 1 | April 29, 1972

Those Barrow fans old enough to rememeber this game, certainly won't like to be reminded of it as it was a defeat that made sure the Bluebirds finished in the re-election places in Division Four and subsquently resulted in them losing their Football League status after they were voted out by the other member clubs and replaced by Hereford United. 

Head to head

  • Exeter City wins: 5
  • Draws: 8
  • Barrow wins: 5
