📝 Match Preview: Barrow AFC (A)

City make the long long trip north

17 August 2021

Exeter City make the huge trip north to face Barrow on Tuesday night looking to pick up their first win of the season.

Following defeat to Leyton Orient at the weekend, Matt Taylor's Grecians have the opportunity to make amends when they make the 326 mammoth journey to the Dunes Hotel Stadium, where they hope they can pick up their first Football League win against the Bluebirds.

Mark Cooper's Cumbrians were 3-2 winners over Hartlepool United on Saturday - their first win of the season - which was Barrow's first restriction free home game in front of fans since their promotion to League Two in 2020.   

Pierce Sweeney's Thoughts

"The best thing about football is that there is always another opportunity to put things right and we need to go and do that," he said.

"This early in the season it is important not to dwell on bad results. We can learn from them, but we can't dwell on them. 

"We can still be confident despite previous results."
