Kingsley James has no doubts Barrow AFC can push themselves over the line and secure National League safety tomorrow.

The on-loan midfielder will be a more-than interested spectator at Holker Street as he current side take on his parent club Chester on the final day of the season (12.30pm). James joined AFC on loan from the Cestrians in February, but despite a request being put in by Barrow for him to feature against them this weekend, he is set to be denied that prospect.

Instead, he will be sat on the sidelines as the team he has helped to four wins and five draws during his time at Holker Street look for the three points which will guarantee them another year in non-league’s top-flight. Not being able to play his part on the field will be difficult for the 26-year-old former England C international, but he is confident the team can achieve their goal without him.

“It will be difficult, because obviously I want to be involved and contributing,” said James, who has featured in all 14 games for Barrow since arriving at Holker Street, starting all but his first appearance against Maidstone United. “Unfortunately I can’t, and it will be a little bit nervous and a little bit anxious.

“But the way the lads have performed as a whole since I have been here, I fully believe we will get over the line.”
