Barrow AFC manager Ady Pennock was delighted with what he saw from the players who came in at Nuneaton Town in the FA Trophy.
The Bluebirds boss rang the changes, making five to the starting 11 from the game at home to Dagenham and Redbridge a week before, as he wanted to rest key men as well as look at fringe players who have not featured regularly under his stewardship in the Vanarama National League. It worked for AFC, as they won 1-0 thanks to a last-minute winner from Bryon Harrison at a cold Liberty Way.
Pennock said: “Joel (Dixon) came in and did so well and kept a clean sheet. Jack (Bartham), Dan (Jones), young Donovan (Makoma) and David (Fitzpatrick), who came on as a sub have all have done very well, and it has given me the opportunity to look at them.
“We have got the January transfer window coming up and the ball is in their court, like I said before. But to come here it was all about getting into the next round.”
