Salford City head north to Cumbria on Tuesday night to play Barrow in December’s rearranged visit.
Defeat to Colchester United on Saturday leaves The Ammies seven points off the play-offs in Sky Bet League Two, but Gary Bowyer’s side will be hoping to respond with another away success.
On the road Salford have won two of three games so far in 2022, and were dominant with a lead at Bradford City until Brandon Thomas-Asante’s red card. Last Tuesday’s visit to Port Vale ended with three points thanks to Tom Elliott’s second half header.
Hosts Barrow were also on the wrong side of three goals as they lost 3-1 at home to 10-man Mansfield Town on Saturday, leaving them 21st. Since their 2-0 win against Ipswich Town in the FA Cup Second Round replay Mark Cooper’s side have won one of six, although they came close to another Cup shock as they fought back with 10 men to draw 4-4 at Barnsley in the Third Round and take the Tykes to extra-time, but the Championship side eventually prevailed 5-4.
The Bluebirds have been active in January, bringing in attackers Will Harris and Jacob Wakeling, and defender Anthony Driscoll-Glennon on loans from Sunderland, Leicester City and Burnley respectively.
Last season Salford managed the ‘double’ over Barrow, winning 1-0 at Holker Street courtesy of Ash Hunter’s cross-come-shot, while Ian Henderson clinched three points at The Peninsula Stadium.
Brandon Thomas-Asante serves the third of his four-game suspension, while Ibou Touray is still away with The Gambia at AFCON after their win against Guinea on Monday night.
Full back Liam Shephard is in contention again after coming on as a substitute on Saturday for Theo Vassell, who picked up a knock. Matty Willock, Luke Burgess and Ian Henderson remain sidelined with injury, while Josh Morris contends with a niggle.
Former Ammies Patrick Brough and Robbie Gotts are likely to start for Barrow.
