Barrow 1-2 Lincoln City

Lincoln City made it eight games unbeaten with victory over Barrow.

Alan Power received Jamie Taylor's pass and opened the scoring for the Imps from 12 yards out.

The scorer then assisted the second goal as substitute Vadaine Oliver swept home from inside the area.

The Bluebirds had hope when Richie Baker scored an 85th-minute penalty after Tom Miller's foul on Louis Almond but they could not engineer another chance to rescue a draw.


Lincoln City manager David Holdsworth told BBC Radio Lincolnshire:

"To come a long way and put in such a good performance, I'm proud of the players.

"It takes time to develop and you need consistency in your selection and we've got that at present. I didn't want to change things because these boys are enjoying it.

"It's hard for the others but they're supporting them and the whole squad today deserves a pat on the back.

"I told them just be solid, be straight, don't make any silly mistakes and keep nice and firm and I thought we were very professional. We looked very well organised and our players kept their shape on the pitch.

"Barrow's goal gave them a bit of a lift but we saw it out. We were strong, we kept numbers behind the ball and I felt we were comfortable winners and if anything we should have put the game to bed."
