Macclesfield Town 0-1 Barrow

Barrow moved into the National League play-off positions with a 1-0 win at Macclesfield.

Richard Bennett netted the winner from the penalty spot in the 66th minute following a handball in the area.

The visitors were reduced to 10 men just six minutes before the goal as Akil Wright was shown a second yellow card for a foul on David Fitzpatrick.

Macclesfield, six points off the top five, thought they had levelled 16 minutes from time but Chris Holroyd's effort was disallowed for offside.

Meanwhile, Barrow have signed full-back Luke Burke, 18, on a month's loan from Wigan.
