Barrow 1-3 Grimsby Town

Padraig Amond
Padraig Amond has now scored 14 goals in 17 games this season

Padraig Amond scored twice as Grimsby Town came from behind to beat Barrow and move into the play-off places.

Barrow, who are 17th in the National League table after three consecutive league defeats, led when Otis Khan's corner eluded everyone and went in.

Town levelled by the break, a Danny Livesey slip allowing Amond to slot in.

But Josh Gowling's header made it 2-1 and smart work by Richard Tait and Danny East teed up Amond for his 14th goal of the season late on.

Grimsby, who have now lost just once in 13 league games, move above Bromley and Braintree into fifth.
