Barrow vs Gillingham Preview, Tips & Stats

Barrow host Gillingham at Holker Street this Saturday in a big weekend at the top of the table. Both sides have been around the top of the table, but Gillingham will be looking to get back into the Play-off places.

Barrow currently sit third in League Two after 20 games. The Bluebirds have ten wins, seven draws and three losses, leaving them on 37 points, equal with Wrexham in second and five points behind Stockport who are top of the table.

In their last five games in all competitions, Barrow have four wins and one loss. Dom Telford opened the scoring for Barrow in the first minute of the game against Bradford, but Tyler Smith equalised before halftime. However, George Ray scored late on to grab a 2 - 1 win for Barrow despite just 34% of the possession for Barrow. Next time out Telford scored again for Barrow with the only goal of the game in the 1 - 0 win over Crawley Town.

Cameron McGeehan drew first blood for Colchester and it seemed Barrow only equalised through a Will Greenidge own goal. However, after the red card to Colchester’s Jayden Fevrier, the flood gates opened. Ray grabbed a brace and Zach Mitchell scored an own goal all in the last ten minutes to give Barrow the 4 - 1 win. Ben Whitfield and Niall Canavan both scored against Walsall in the 2 - 0 win for Barrow.

The last time out for Barrow was against Maidstone United in the Second round of the FA Cup. Whitfield opened the scoring, but goals from Sam Corne and Bivesh Gurung gave Maidstone the shock 2 - 1 win.

Gillingham, on the other hand, sit seventh in League Two. In 20 games, Gillingham have ten wins, one draw and nine losses which leaves them on 31 points, six points behind Barrow and Wrexham in the automatic promotion places.

In their last five games in all competitions, Gillingham have three wins and two losses. Ollie Palmer gave Wrexham the lead within the first minute and Ben Tozer doubled their lead in the second hand with no reply from Gillingham as Wrexham won 2 - 0. But Gillingham bounced back against Salford City. Connor Mahoney put Gillingham into the lead in the 22nd minute, but Salford were level at halftime through Matt Smith. Tom Nichols and Dom Jefferies both scored in the second half to give Gillingham the 3 - 1 win.

However, next time out, Gillingham were on the wrong side of the 3 - 1 scoreline. A brace from Rob Apter and a goal from Connor Jennings gave Tranmere the 3 - 0 lead going into the later stages of the game and despite a late goal from Mahoney, Gillingham slumped to a 3 - 1 loss. Conor Masterson scored the only goal of the game in the 85th minute for a 1 - 0 win over Wimbledon.

The most recent putin for Gillingham was against Charlton in the Second round of the FA Cup. Macauley Bonne and Timothee Dieng both scored in the first half in the 2 - 0 win for Gillingham.

Barrow and Gillingham have met 22 times in their histories with the first meeting coming back 1958. Gillingham have the better record in the fixture with ten wins in comparison to Barrow’s six wins, with the other six games ending in a draw.
