Dover Athletic 3-1 Barrow

Dover moved back into the National League play-off places with a comfortable win over 10-man Barrow.

Ricky Modeste fired home from Nicky Deverdics' pass to put the hosts ahead, and Richard Orlu's long-range effort doubled the lead shortly after.

Ricky Miller added a third before half-time when his shot was deflected beyond Barrow keeper Joel Dixon.

Niall Cowperthwaite was shown a red card for a tackle on Sam Magri, before Andy Cook pulled a goal back late on.
