Ian Evatt is optimistic Barrow AFC will be able to get straight back into their stride when they return to action at home to Bromley on Saturday, The Mail report.
The Bluebirds are just over halfway through their second two-week break in the space of a month and they looked rusty the last time they took to the field following a fortnight off it.
It took them until the final 20 minutes of what was a drab 0-0 draw against FC Halifax Town at Holker Street for them to start looking like breaking the deadlock, having spent the previous time looking unusually careless in possession.
Following another scoreless contest at Chesterfield, AFC head into the clash against the Ravens off the back of eight clean sheets in their last 11 league games.
However, they are without a goal since Jacob Blyth’s stoppage-time winner against Salford City on December 29.
Evatt said: “We just need to play better than we did against Halifax, it’s as simple as that.
“I think if we can have a performance like we have done for 60 minutes at Chesterfield then hopefully we can get the right result.
“We just need to have more intensity, more energy and desire about our play, along with the bravery of keeping possession of the football.”
