Well it's time to watch the Dons again after yet another mini-eternity, and this time it should be a match-up.
Barrow on their record are the best side in this division up to press.
It's arguable whether Workington are a better side at the moment and Donny too.
They are like us hard to beat on their own patch, but beatable away from home.

So what do we think?
We are playing them at a time when we have a few injuries, but so do they.
Darren Holt said the other week that he is out for a spell owing to an injury (groin I think), but I wouldn't put it past him to turn out against the Dons. He's our nemesis!

We are down to one winger, so unless Colton has shaken off his achilles trouble, someone will have to make do.

I'm a good whinger, would that help? :lol:

There's no doubt we are capable of scoring enough points to win most games, but will need to defend better in the coming two fixtures. Hopefully it was because we were just a tad complacent whilst chasing a big score. Tom Hodsons pace will be missed, as at home the Dons like to use the full width of the pitch,which has been a big part of our home performances. The forwards will know they are in for a battle, and the bench will play a big part. I think we'll win ,by how many?, anyones guess

Dons to score thirteen points (or more) than Barrow, that will do nicely. Should be a cracker and the next two home games are what it is all about. Can't wait.

44-20, thereby maintaining our record of never having scored less than 40 points in a home game all season.

I just hope that the Barrow supporters go back to Cumbria as bewildered and disappointed as I was when I went (foolishly) to Barrow.

We have got to get a grip on Liam Harrison, particularly in the second half.
He plays as though he is a left centre, which he is not, he is a forward, but that's where he goes looking for holes. But if he's not stopped, he will damage us big time.

He is instrumental in lots of Barrow tries
He was the gamestar in their last game.
Miller take note.

Did he not watch one before we went to Barrow then?

And yes, I do not share this wild euphoria that sees us beating Barrow easily and putting 40 points by them.

They have already made us look poop once already.

We are obviously a different prospect at the Keepmoat, but I ain't counting my chickens.

Barrow are not top for nothing, have not lost for ages and they did considerably better in the Puffers Cup than us.
