Barrow 1-1 Macclesfield Town

National League mid-table sides Barrow and Macclesfield played out an entertaining draw at Holker Street.

Danny Whitehead gave the visitors the lead as he calmly slotted home his shot into the bottom left-hand corner.

The home side were awarded a penalty before the break as Reece Styche fouled Jason Walker with the latter firing home the spot kick.

Ben Tomlinson's late header nearly won it for Barrow in stoppage time but Macclesfield held on for the draw.
