Wrexham 3-3 Barrow

Callum MacDonald levelled in injury time for Barrow in a controversial finish at Wrexham.

Dragons boss Dean Keates and Barrow manager Ady Pennock were sent off in the dying minutes of a feisty finale.

Chris Holroyd's opener was followed by Barrow's Jordan White capitalising on goalkeeper Chris Dunn's error to level.

Dan Jones put Barrow in front and after Wrexham battled back through James Jennings and Scott Boden, MacDonald turned in a late corner.

Shortly before MacDonald's effort, Keates and Pennock's touchline bust-up led to their banishments to the stand.

On the sendings off of the managers, Wrexham boss Keates told BBC Sport Wales: "It's the same as what happened the first half when I stepped into their technical box to catch the ball, they put a leg between my leg and kicked it away. #

"Obviously they're trying to chase the game in the last minute, the ball's coming across our technical box, he's come across me and I've put my foot there.

"There was nothing in it, Ady Pennock came to see me after the game, I've played against him over the years.

"The referee's made a lot more of it than was needed there was no scuffles, a lot of arguing.

"But as I said it happened in the first half, nothing got said about it then it happened second half and as it's in the last minute he makes a much bigger deal of it."
