Chester 1-2 Barrow

Jordan Williams scored twice to help Barrow extend their unbeaten run to six games and make it three consecutive defeats for Chester.

Ross Hannah's 19th goal of the season from close range put the home side ahead, but the lead did not last.

After half-time Williams broke through the defence and curled past goalkeeper Tony Thompson to equalise.

With five minutes remaining the forward then lashed in a wonderful low strike from 25 yards to seal the points.
