Barrow AFC manager Ian Evatt has challenged the other strikers at the club to step up to the mark while Scott Quigley misses the next three games through suspension.

Quigley was shown the first red card of his career in the 2-0 defeat against Notts County for a late challenge on visiting goalkeeper Joe McDonnell.

The 27-year-old will unquestionably be missed by the Bluebirds as, with 20 goals this season, is the leading scorer in the National League and has given Evatt the cutting edge up front that was missing for much of his first season in charge.

Evatt does have the experienced Byron Harrison to call upon, as well as loanees Olly Dyson and Jack Vale, who could make his debut against Wrexham on Saturday after arriving from Blackburn Rovers last week.

Evatt said: “Jack is going to have to step up and Byron is going to have to step up and Olly Dyson is going to have to step up and they’ve got to show me this week that they are ready to play and they’re ready to fight for it.”
