Forest Green foiled again
FOREST GREEN ROVERS 1 BARROW 1
FOREST Green's winless Blue Square Bet Premier run has stretched to five games after lowly Barrow bagged a deserved point.
James Norwood's early strike was cancelled out in the second half by Richie Baker, another savage blow to Rovers' fading play-off hopes.
Matty Taylor was the architect of the opener with a superb threaded pass, giving Norwood time to look up and clinically slot home his 15th goal of the season.

The leveller arrived in the 63rd minute, Baker drilling past an unsighted Sam Russell from 16 yards after being first to a loose ball in a packed area.
The hosts looked stunned, and it was not until the 79th minute that they threatened again when Jared Hodgkiss swung over a deep cross and Chris Stokes headed firmly into the hands of Hurst.
In fact it was Barrow who finished the stronger, and they missed a glorious chance to win it when Al Bangura inexplicably presented the ball to Baker and the midfielder curled his shot against the post from the edge of the area with Russell beaten.
