Barrow 1-0 Braintree Town

John Rooney scored early against Braintree at Holker Street to deliver Barrow their third straight home win of the National League season.

A rapid raid in the seventh minute saw Jack Barthram race down the wing to collect a ball forward before playing it inside for Rooney to tuck home and make it 1-0 after Jason Taylor cleverly faked a shot.

Rooney then enjoyed two more shooting chances, seeing both attempts saved before Nathan Waterston latched onto the second rebound only to blast over.

Ben Killip made a good save from Tyler Smith to keep Braintree alive after the break, yet Barrow kept pushing and Rooney blasted just wide moments later.

The visitors, who remain winless this term, did manage to put the ball in the back of the net but Reece Grant was ruled offside.
