Tranmere Rovers 0-1 Barrow

Andy Haworth's first-half goal gave Barrow victory at Tranmere Rovers.

The hosts started brightly as Adam Mekki dragged a shot wide and James Norwood headed straight at Joel Dixon.

Barrow went ahead against the run of play when Haworth beat two Tranmere defenders before firing past Scott Davies from 20 yards.

Dixon kept out Norwood's 25-yard strike and saved Jonathon Margetts' effort as Barrow held on for the win and Tranmere slipped out of the play-offs.
