That's another incredible result with the injuries we have got.
Well done Ian E , management and team.
Shame we don't have 15 games left.....it would be very interesting.
Roll on Harrogate..... Bring a friend and let's get that attendance lifted next week.

Only 9 PTS in it. Obviously depending on other results BUT...it's not over til the fat one sings and we have Harrogate next.. take all 3 from them and we DO HAVE something to potentially play for!! I dare to dream, do you?

If we hadn't missed those two pens earlier in the season we could be 4 points better off.. Who knows then win every game you never know.. Great run this we are having last 3 games

To win at Eastleigh who are having a great season with an injury ravaged side some good result that

Compared to this time last year---WOW.
I think these lads have proved they want to play for Barrow and even when they lose a game they always play to that final whistle and battle on. Their fitness is also a factor, no huffing and puffing with this lot after 10 mins.
I don't mind admitting I almost lost my love of the game last season and to say forcing myself to the games was not exaggerating.
It wasn't the losing of games that was the problem it was the manner in which we lost them and the attitudes of those playing.
These lads have been a revelation. Restores the faith.
Thank you for restoring the enthusiasm and well done especially over the last 8 days. :scarf:

That is a great result in really difficult conditions. Our defence were excellent today meaning that Eastleigh didn’t have a shot on target in the whole game. They ran and worked for the full 90 and, as has already been said, is such a joy in comparison to last season. It’s difficult to single out individuals when that required a consolidated team effort. Taylor was his usual self, Jones is a revelation compared to this time last season, Jameson had a good game, Hardcastle improving all the time and Jennings was all over the pitch in a role sat just in front of the back three.
Evatt clearly does his homework on the opposition and is tactically astute in the setup he chooses. He has also got a squad that can adapt accordingly.
I share Holkerbird’s thoughts about bringing back the desire to go to the game.
Oh, and a few beers in the Steamtown brewhouse before the game was a fitting prelude to an enjoyable day.

Same for me Elaine.
With the Cassons throwing daft money around in the wrong places and off the field we were getting worse I was close to calling it a day.
Now the new local board are running us I can see a massive change already in at least trying to be self sustainable.
It makes me want to do my bit down there.
Now if all the plans we have come off then 2019/20 should be a promising season with things starting to move off the field as well...
Onwards and upwards

What a result! The fact that we've done it with so many injuries makes it all the more impressive.

Let's get Evatt contracted sheepish!

That’s getting down to the bare bones now.
It's ok Ian, we've got a thousand defenders. ;)
Absolutely magnificent performance. With so many injuries and players playing out of position to fill in. Also a couple of young kids on today. Also, not forgetting Ian Evatt, he's the man behind it all.
It will be interesting to see what the crowd is next Saturday won't it !

Great result, especially as Eastleigh have been on a good run, shame the teams above us picked up points too. Can't wait to fly over for the D & R game. Forza Bluebirds.
