Barrow 4-1 FC Halifax Town

Halifax's heavy loss at Barrow left them hovering above the relegation zone in the National League.

Jordan Williams opened the scoring for the Bluebirds, finishing high into the goal after good work from Andy Cook.

Williams then returned the favour as his corner found Cook who headed in his 18th goal of the season, before Cook assisted Jason Walker for 3-0.

Connor Hughes' consolation goal got the Shaymen on the scoresheet before Ben Tomlinson fired in Barrow's fourth.
