Footymad preview History of the Tamworth v Barrow fixture

Barrow face a trip to Tamworth at The Lamb Ground on Saturday afternoon, looking to break their duck against the hosts. While the majority of previous matches have ended up drawn, a win has yet to be registered by Bluebirds.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in October 2010, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a (Conference) Premier match.
