Barrow will face a team with one of the longest unbeaten runs in the country when they visit Banbury Utd on Saturday in the FA Cup.
Banbury won 4-2 on Tuesday night in the Southern League Challenge Cup at Thame United to extend their run to 19 games.
Nicknamed the Puritans, they are third in Southern League Premier Central Division on 29 points, with two games in hand over Peterborough Sports (33) and Coalville Town (30) above them.
They have won nine and drawn two of their 11 games so far and since their last League win on Tuesday, October 26 they have beaten Corby 1-0 in the FA Trophy and then Thame United in the League Cup.
With excitement building for Saturday’s televised home clash with Barrow, the club have reported a sell-out at their 2,400-capacity Banbury Plant Hire Community Stadium.
The game is being shown live on ITV4 on Saturday with a 5.15pm kick-off.
But Banbury will be without goalkeeper Jack Harding, who is recovering in a cast after dislocating his left elbow in Banbury’s win over Leiston on October 19.
He will be in a cast for a while to allow the tendons to heal and will then need physio before he is fit to play again.
As a result Banbury’ have completed the loan signing of goalkeeper Mackenzie Chapman from Oxford United, who he joined in August.
Mackenzie, 18, started out at Accrington Stanley from under-8s to under-11s before moving to Burnley.
He joined Manchester United for the first year of his scholarship then signed for Oldham Athletic where he was back-up keeper for the first team for much of last season as well as making his senior debut.
