    Match Preview

    Hurst blow for Bluebirds Barrow boss Dave Bayliss is likely to be without the services of goalkeeper Danny Hurst for the FA Cup second-round tie against Macclesfield. Hurst limped off after just 22 minutes of Friday night's home defeat to Hereford and is not expected to feature. Second-choice keeper Shaun Pearson replaced him on the evening and will be included from the start against the Silkmen. Bayliss is unable to name another shot-stopper on the bench and so is likely to hand one of his fringe players a place in the squad. Midfielder Danny Rowe missed out against the Bulls with a knock and faces a late fitness test. The Bluebirds are looking to progress to the third round for the fourth time as a non-league club. Macclesfield welcome back midfielder John-Paul Kissock for the rearranged trip. Kissock missed Saturday's 1-1 draw against Forest Green through suspension after collecting his fifth yellow card of the season. But full-back Craig Braham-Barrett looks set to miss out after limping off in the first half against Rovers. Manager Steve King has an otherwise fully-fit squad available. Peter Winn is pushing to return to the starting line-up after dropping to the bench at the weekend, although he came on as a 36th-minute replacement for Braham-Barrett. The original tie was postponed because of a frozen pitch at Holker Street. The winners will face a visit from Championship leaders Cardiff in the third round.
