Barrow AFC go into tomorrow’s match against Bromley without a goal in four games, but striker Dior Angus has revealed how manager Ian Evatt has prevented that from playing on their minds, The Mail report.

The Bluebirds last found the net in their final match of 2018, when Jacob Blyth’s header in the fourth-minute of stoppage time gave them a dramatic 3-2 victory over promotion-chasing Salford City.

The performances from them have been a mixed bag since, with disappointing displays against Havant & Waterlooville and FC Halifax Town being balanced out by encouraging ones against AFC Fylde and Chesterfield.

Defensively, Barrow have been impressive too, keeping eight clean sheets in their last 11 games. However, recent matches have seen them struggle to score.

Their clash with the Ravens, who are just below them in the National League table, at Holker Street will be Angus’ third game for the club.

And the words of encouragement from Evatt after their goalless draw away to Chesterfield just under two weeks ago mean he is feeling relaxed about AFC ending their drought.

He said: “We do need to score goals and the gaffer stressed that after the Halifax game, but then after Chesterfield he said that while we haven’t scored in four games, the way that we’re playing meant it’s coming.

“We missed chances that day we should have scored – as much as they should have scored, we should have scored ourselves.”
