Barrow 3-2 Altrincham

Neil Tolson's first game in caretaker charge of Altrincham ended in defeat as Barrow sealed all three points in a five-goal thriller.

Jordan Sinnott gave Alty the lead from a free-kick but Danny Livesey levelled, heading in Jordan Williams' corner.

Andy Cook gave Barrow the lead with a solo effort and almost scored again but Ben Tomlinson headed in after visiting keeper Tim Deasy parried his effort.

James Lawrie scored a consolation off the post after Damian Reeves' lay-off.

Altrincham remain in the National League's relegation places in 21st place following the defeat, while Barrow stay in 15th after winning their second consecutive league game.

Tolson was placed in temporary charge of Alty for the rest of the season following Lee Sinnott's dismissal on Wednesday after five years in charge of the club.
