Both Teams to Score
This is a fixture between two teams that have the best feet forward. Despite losing three in their last ten fixtures, Barrow has found the net in eight of their last ten games. The hosts have scored an average of two goals per match within that time, save for two 2-0 loss to Leyton Orient a few days ago and 1-0 loss to Grimsby Town back in March. Port Vale comes into this fixture having scored in seven of their last ten games. While a barren draw with Carlisle a few days ago ended Port Vale’s six-match winning streak, we predict goals on both ends.
Both Teams to Score
Barrow has found the net in eight of their last ten games. The visitors have failed to score in three of their last ten games. Both teams average two goals per match. Barrow has scored two goals in each of their last three home games. Port Vale has scored an average of two goals in three of their last four away games.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
Port Vale comes into this fixture with a seven-match undefeated run. In all those fixtures, they only failed to score in a barren draw with Carlisle a few days ago. There have been four different scorers in Port Vale’s last five games, save for Defender Nathan Smith who has found the net in two of their last five games. And despite losing three of their last then games, Barrow has only failed to score twice within that duration. We expect at least three goals in this fixture.
Barrow to Win
Barrow defeated Port Vale 2-0 in the reverse fixture back in December 2020, the only previous league meeting between the two teams. We are backing the hosts to win the second leg despite having a less impressive form than the visitors. The reason is simple. With a game in hand, a win for the hosts would give them 11-point safety from the red zone. Port Vale has little to play for, if not to extend their unbeaten run to eight matches.

Fixture Preview: Barrow Looking for more Safety Points
Our fixture preview should shed more light on this fixture and the teams are likely to perform on match day.
Barrow has to win or risk a heightened relegation battle with only five games to go. The hosts sit 21st on the league table, 8 points from the drop, and only two points above 22nd place Colchester. The last two teams; Southend and Grimsby, have 38 and 37 points respectively and can still mount a strong survival campaign going into the final month of their League Two campaign.
Port Vale are 14th with 54 points and four games to go. The visitors ended their six-match winning streak a few days ago when they registered only one shot on a target against Carlisle in a game that ended 0-0. Before losing to Leyton Orient a few days ago, Barrow scored two goals in all their last three home games, winning two with a scoreline of 2-1 and drawing 2-2 against Carlisle. We predict another scoreline of 2-1 in favour of Port Vale.
