Wrexham remain third in the National League despite being held to a goalless draw at Barrow, who climb to 14th.

Clear-cut scoring chances were at a premium on a blustery night, but both sides had chances to snatch it.

Fleetwood loanee Bobby Grant headed on to the post on his Wrexham debut, with Paul Rutherford then seeing his effort well saved by Joel Dixon.

Wrexham goalkeeper Rob Lainton then produced an equally good save to keep out John Rooney's free-kick.

Wrexham manager Sam Ricketts told BBC Sport Wales: "I was really disappointed, that was up there with the worst we've played.

"We never got going, never imposed ourselves, we didn't do the basics of how we play particularly well. A frustrating night but we kept another clean sheet.

"But there's nothing to worry about. We go through phases and this was a Tuesday night that we just weren't at our best."
