Barrow win

Exeter might have started the season as a favourite to finish close to the play-offs, but the young squad has started the season in a disastrous fashion with no wins and no goals so far. Barrow should be able to take advantage of the visitors going through a poor run and pick up their third consecutive win at home. After wins over Scunthorpe and Hartlepool, this will be a bigger test for Barrow but they had previously beaten Exeter on this ground last season.

Total goals over 2.5

Exeter City are surprisingly very poor in front of goal and they have been short of confidence going forward. Barrow, meanwhile, are getting goals out of players like Dimitri Sea, who has scored in games, and the team looks confident with four goals in the last two matches. Barrow should be the primary contributor of goals in this match.

Second half to witness highest number of goals

The games involving Barrow and Exeter have seen a large turnout of goals in the second half. This was especially seen in the last two games for Barrow with four of the six goals in these two games being scored in the second half. There will be some tiredness in the second half of this match and this is likely to increase the likelihood of more second-half goals.

Barrow vs Exeter: Team News and Match Preview


Barrow will be delighted to have recovered quickly from the opening day defeat against Stevenage. The wins over Scunthorpe and Hartlepool have put the team in a decent position to build upon the season. Following the departure of some key players, Barrow were wondering about the goals but the team has now scored four in the last two matches.


Exeter boss Matt Taylor was disappointed to see his team suffer a heavy loss against Leyton Orient. This has a huge impact on the fragile confidence levels shown by the team at the start of the season. The missed penalty and a red card for Jonathan Grounds are further issues for Exeter. There are no injury problems for Taylor coming into this game.
