Ady Pennock fully accepts Barrow AFC will be relegated if they have not found a way to solve their Holker Street hoodoo inside the next six days.

A 4-1 thrashing at Leyton Orient may not have told the entire story on Saturday, but the state of play is now pretty clear. Pennock’s side have slipped into the bottom four for the first time thanks to the heavy loss in East London and Solihull Moors’ late win at Hartlepool United – a result earned thanks to a goal from Adi Yussuf, released by Barrow earlier this year.

The Bluebirds are without a home victory since October, and more than five months without success in front of their own fans paints a sorry picture. They face nothing-to-play-for Eastleigh at home tomorrow night, before Ebbsfleet United visit on Saturday.

Pennock knows that if the problem is not remedied within the next 180 minutes of football, the club can start planning for life in National League North next season.

 “It’s a difficult position we find ourselves in now,” he said. “This isn’t the result that we wanted, especially as our away form has been so good.

“You can’t beat around the bush, we now have to react to this very quickly or we know what’s going to happen.”
