Barrow 2-2 Forest Green

Matt Taylor headed in a late equaliser as Forest Green Rovers secured a point against struggling Barrow.

The promotion-chasing visitors went ahead through James Norwood, who nodded in Yan Klukowski's free-kick.

Adam Boyes brought Barrow level with a low shot into the bottom corner just before half-time and Matt Flynn fired in to give the hosts the lead.

But they were denied a much-needed win by Taylor, who scored from Steve Brogan's free-kick in the 88th minute.


Forest Green manager Dave Hockaday told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"We've gone ahead with our first effort and had another great chance from Matty Taylor to go two up, but I thought for large parts of the game, they wanted it more than us.

"It was only in the last 20 minutes we took the game to them and showed a hunger and appetite, and that was a great reaction.

"We have worked the last two weeks on set-plays, we've worked on them more than normal and it has paid dividends.

"Given the appetite they showed, its a good point."
