Batley coach Karl Harrison is demanding a huge improvement from his side after last week’s home defeat against Sheffield.
Harrison said: “There was lots of effort but there were too many dumb plays.
“It was a game we should have won. We’re now probably struggling for the six.”
Barrow coach Steve McCormack is warning his troops to prepare for battle when they travel to West Yorkshire.
Raiders beat Batley 56-10 in April, but McCormack has revealed that Harrison has been promising to get his revenge.
McCormack told the North West Evening Mail: “There was a lot of banter between myself and Karl after we beat them here, but he warned me that things will be a lot different when we go to Mount Pleasant.
“This game is going to be a big challenge for us.”
