Three Big Points For Ten-Man Barrow

Barrow AFC returned to fifth spot in the Vanarama National League on Wednesday night after winning 1-0 at the Moss Rose against a Macclesfield Town outfit who would have put pressure on the top themselves had they won.

And to make it an even better three points for the Bluebirds, they achieved it with ten-men.

 

Chances were very few and far between in the game, and the teams went into the break all-square at 0-0 and fairly evenly-matched.

 

Disaster struck though for Barrow on the hour-mark as Akil Wright was shown a second yellow card after a hefty challenge on Macc full-back David Fitzpatrick.

 

Six minutes later though, the ten-men were awarded a penalty for handball.

 

Richie Bennett (pictured) stepped up and sent Scott Flinders the wrong way to put the visitors ahead.

 

Paul Cox`s side managed the game well after that and restricted the Silkmenís goalscoring opportunities for the remainder of the game, although Chris Holroyd did think he`d equalised in the 74th minute, only to see the assistant`s flag raised for offside.

 

The win lifts Barrow onto 53 points, the same as Dover Athletic, but with a better goal difference, while Macclesfield remain in ninth and now six points behind the play-off places, although they do possess a game in hand on most around and above them.
