Last Time Out:

We met Wrexham on Boxing Day at the FBSS and the teams played out a 1-1 draw. Moussa Diarra scored in the 2nd minute for the second game running, before Shaun Pearson equalised for the Welsh side later in the first half.

The teams played out an entertaining 2-2 draw the last time we visited the Racecourse, in what was Wrexham manager Dean Keates’ first game as the permanent manager of the club.

The Bluebirds took an early lead through Byron Harrison before Curtis Tilt equalized for the home side after 25 minutes. The hosts looked like they had won in when John Rooney scored 12 minutes from time, but on loan midfielder Ryan Yates struck for Barrow in second half stoppage time to ensure the sides shared the spoils.
