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.
