Forest Green Rovers 0-0 Barrow

An impressive Forest Green performance yielded only a goalless draw at home to Barrow.

Rovers twice came agonisingly close to breaking the deadlock in the first half.

Liam Noble's whipped free-kick was headed against the post by Aarran Racine.

Minutes later, Drissa Traore rampaged forward and smashed a shot against Joel Dixon's bar as the visitors hung on by the skin of their teeth.

The frustration mounted for the home side in the second half. A Keanu Marsh-Brown effort whizzed past the Barrow upright, and Noble dipped a strike on to the roof of the net.

At the other end, Jordan Williams' shot was saved late on by Sam Russell to prevent an away win.
