Barrow 2-2 Forest Green Rovers

Forest Green Rovers missed the chance to go top of the National League as Barrow came from behind to draw.

Kieffer Moore opened the scoring with his first goal of the season before Keanu Marsh-Brown doubled Rovers' lead.

Danny Livesey brought Barrow back into the game when he volleyed in a deep Jordan Williams corner.

Williams brilliantly levelled late on as he raced towards goal before unleashing a 25-yard strike past Rovers keeper Steve Arnold.

Forest Green boss Ady Pennock told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

Pennock on Barrow v Forest Green

"I'm disappointed to concede a two-goal lead. It all started from our chance when we hit the post and then they come down here and they had a free header in the six-yard box.

"We didn't defend that one properly, Charlie Clough decided not to mark his man properly and Livesey had a free header.

"But what a fantastic month we've had - we've had four away games, one home game, it's been a great month and I'm well chuffed."
