Ian Evatt believes his side’s impressive win at Sutton United on Saturday is a sign Barrow AFC are capable of challenging at the top of the National League, The Mail report.

It looked as though Barrow would have to settle for a point after they missed several good chances, and had what looked like a stonewall penalty appeal turned down. However, the impressive Josh Kay struck in the final minute and the Bluebirds boss was impressed with his side’s resilience.

“I thought we were magnificent,” said Evatt.

“I loved the way that we were creating chances, missing chances and not having the rub of the green but we kept going and kept going and eventually got that bit of luck that we deserved.

“Sutton is a difficult place to play, they are a good team, they’re experienced and their manager and coaches have done well. So to come here and play like we have done is something to be proud of.”
