This weekend FC Halifax Town welcome the challenge of 19th placed Barrow to the MBi Shay Stadium. Here are some pre-match stats for this enticing fixture:

  1. Barrow’s defence has been rather leaky on the roads this season, having conceded in 91% of their away games.
  2. However, recently the side haven’t struggled to find the back of the net, scoring at least twice in their last four away matches.
  3. Furthermore, Barrow have scored at least one goal in just under three quarters of their away games.
  4. Halifax sit considerably higher than Barrow in the relative home and away tables, with Halifax 13th for home form compared to Barrow who are 21st in the away table.
  5. However, recent form is not very rosy for Halifax who sit bottom of the form table with just 4 points from their last 8 games.
  6. A win for Barrow could see them get to touching distance of Halifax, as the away side are 4 points behind The Shaymen.
  7. Barrow have scored 15 goals away from home this season, compared to Halifax’s 14 goals scored at home.
  8. There is bound to be goals in this one, as Barrow have never played in an away game this season that hasn’t seen a goal.
  9. Goal scoring has not been an issue for Barrow as they find themselves in 10th place for goals scored, considerably higher than their league position of 19th.
  10. However, Halifax’s goal scoring and league position are identical, being 17th in both tables.
