With eight matches before the end of the season, Barrow is six points away from the seventh spot and with one of the best home records in the league, will be aiming for a quick resolution of their opponent's chances.

They met only once historically, and that was the first match of the current season which ended in a 1-1 draw.

Both Teams to Score – No

Gillingham has the worst forward line in League Two, the team's attack scored only 26 goals, or just ten when it comes to the away games alone. Looking at their current form, Barrow had three games without both teams scoring a goal in their past five matches, the same as Gillingham. However, the visiting team is on a five-game streak without BTTS being covered, or looking at a bigger picture, they had only two BTTS matches throughout the last ten games. Their away form is a reason alone to go the route of negative on the BTTS side in this Barrow vs Gillingham encounter.
