Barrow Raiders vs Hemel Stags – Match Preview
Barrow Raiders face Hemel Stags this Sunday at 3:30pm Kick-Off. Hemel Stags come into this game with only 1 win in the league, losing the other 9. They are sat in 14th in the League, only avoiding the bottom spot by having a greater points difference of 20.
The Raiders will be looking to come back off their defeat to London Skolars with a good win against the Stags. We are still pushing towards the Super 8’s, and we are currently 6th in the League, with no option to go 5th or above on this game with a win as Doncaster are 3 points ahead.
Hemel hooker Liam O’Callaghan is a player to watch, scoring multiple times in their last few games. In their last few games, Hemel Stags appear to have started off well, and gone down hill after Half-Time, whereas Barrow appears to be the other way round, starting off poorly, and then coming out and performing well in the 2nd half, so this could cause problems for the Raiders.
Nathan Mossop will be looking again for his first start for the Raiders in nearly 15 weeks as he unfortunately didn’t make the starting lineup last week against the Skolars. A fairly similar team to last week’s team is likely to be started against the Stags.
We hope to see you down at Craven Park for our first home game in nearly a month! Remember that if you can’t attend, our Live Match Centre will be up and running on our website, just simply visit barrowrlfc.com on match day!
