Exeter will wrap up promotion with victory this evening while Jon Brady’s men may well go to Holker Street in need of three points to also clinch a top-three finish.

Barrow secured their own safety by beating Sutton on Saturday but Brown has warned they will not take it easy.

“I want to promise Exeter, Swindon and Northampton that they’re in for a game,” he said.

“The rest of the promotion candidates can rest assured that Barrow will not be lying down in any of the games and if I can put out my strongest 11 then I will be doing.

“It’s not being nasty when I say we want to spoil the party – you can still enjoy yourself at each party you go to but, at the end of the day, you’ve got to come out with a result.

“I am fighting for a contract, it’s as simple as that, and there are some players at the club who are fighting for contracts as well.

“I am looking at everything and every player’s situation, but I am not going to be messing around with the team so if I could keep the same line-up and the same subs then I would do."
