For our Port Vale vs Barrow tips, we’re opting for a 1-1 draw.
Port Vale and Barrow go head-to-head at Vale Park in League Two on Saturday. Port Vale’s five-game winning streak in league and cup came to an end last weekend when they were bested in a seven-goal thriller at in-form Sutton, though the Valiants could bounce back on Saturday.
Barrow have won just three of their last 12 matches in all competitions and they could find the going tough against a Port Vale team that have won each of their last three fixtures on home soil.
With six goals in 11 League Two appearances, Jamie Proctor is Port Vale’s leading marksman this season and the red-hot attacker found the net in each of his last two runouts for the Valiants.
Previously, Barrow drew 1-1 in the League Two tie with Leyton Orient. The only scorer from Barrow was Robbie Gotts (48'). Omar Beckles (69') scored for Leyton Orient.
Barrow have been good when going forward in the lead-up to this encounter, having scored eight times in their previous six matches. While their manager Mark Cooper will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Barrow have had their own issues at the back, also conceding in five of those same games. Let’s find out if that trend can be sustained into this next match. Ahead of this clash, Barrow are undefeated in their previous three league matches away from home.
