Kidderminster 1-2 Barrow

Barrow picked up their fourth straight victory in impressive fashion at Kidderminster Harriers.

Jack Mackreth's header from Richie Baker's cross was deemed to have crossed the line, despite Tony Breeden's best efforts.

Mackreth was then felled in the area by Callum Gittings, allowing Baker to stroke home the visitors' second goal.

Anthony Malbon pulled one back with a fine strike from the edge of the area, while Barrow's Andy Cook struck a post.
