Both teams to score

We are tipping both teams to find the net in this fixture. While Barrow bagged only a point in the first Group G fixture, they put two goals behind the net. The visitors who scored four goals in the first game will fight to keep that momentum going. Moreover, these teams are in great scoring form, having found the net in the last seven games.

Over 2.5

We expect lots of goals in this fixture. Both teams are in fairly good form and should find the net on matchday. The last two meetings had at least four goals. It is now more than nine years since these teams met. A lot has changed over the years but with both sides scoring in their last seven games, a thrilling match on Tuesday should end with at least three goals at full-time.

Fleetwood to score first

Fleetwood is our favourite to open the scoring in this game. The visitors have been in great form even though they have only one victory in the last five games. Fleetwood scored a total of 12 goals in the last five while Barrow netted 9 in as many matches.

Match Preview: Fleetwood Looking to Widen Lead at the Top

Fleetwood will look to widen their lead at the top of Northern Group G in this EFL tournament. But can they do it on the back of a 2-1 loss in League One, and especially against the hosts who come to this game with back to back victories? Find out more in the team previews below.


Barrow is undefeated in the last three matches and comes to this game with back to back victory. The hosts have 3W, 1D and 1L in the last five matches. Barrow has lost twice to Fleetwood in the only four meetings between these teams. The first meeting between these teams was at home to Barrow, a fixture the hosts lost to Barrow back in September 2010.  Barrow defeated Fleetwood 4-0 in the second home fixture in the National league in 2011/22 but lost 4-1 away from home in the reverse match.


Fleetwood comes to this fixture with 1W, 3D and 1L in the last five matches. The visitors have a better scoring record than Barrow, a form that makes them a high scoring prospect in this game. But while they have been phenomenal in the last eight matches, Fleetwood’s biggest undoing has been their defence that always leaked as many goals as they scored, especially in the last five matches.
