Bluebirds set to sign left-back

Bayliss hopes to have a new signing on board for the trip to Lewes

Barrow are expected to sign a new left-back in time for Saturday's Blue Square Premier trip to Lewes.

Joint-manager Dave Bayliss revealed to BBC Radio Cumbria that the player almost made his debut in Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Rushden & Diamonds.

"He was due to play against Rushden but he was unwell. We even had a shirt made up for him before the game," he said.

"He's unattached so he can go straight in. He's a good footballer and hopefully we will have him on board."

The Bluebirds were forced to play winger Carlos Logan at left-back against The Diamonds after Paul Black picked up a hamstring injury in the 3-1 defeat by Stevenage.

My heart bleeds for these players because I want them to do well

Dave Bayliss

Bayliss and co-manager Darren Sheridan are considering changes for the trip to Lewes after going three games without a win.

"My heart bleeds for these players because I want them to do well," Bayliss said.

"But it's frustrating because experienced lads are at times running around like headless chickens. They have to start using their heads not just their hearts.

"They've got a season to work on that but if they are not good enough then they will have to go. It's our jobs that are on the line, they have to prove to us that they want to play."
