Barrow have eased their injury problems with the signings of defensive duo Jordon Thompson and Paul Bignot.

Thompson, 18, has signed for the Bluebirds on a one-month loan from Coventry City, while experienced Bignot has joined as a non-contract player.

Barrow are expecting to be without Dave Nieskens (knee) and Thierry Audel (broken arm) for a number of weeks.

The two new arrivals are both available for Barrow's National League game at home to Torquay on Saturday.
