Barrow 3-2 Salford City

Jacob Blyth netted the winner deep into stoppage time as 10-man Salford suffered a fourth successive National League defeat when going down to Barrow at Holker Street.

Ibou Touray had drilled in an equaliser with six minutes left after Kemy Agustein put Barrow back in front two minutes earlier with a stunning long-range effort.

Blyth opened the scoring in the 15th minute from the penalty spot, tucking home his first goal for the club after Liam Hogan handled Jack Hindle's shot.

Salford were dealt a further blow 10 minutes before half-time when Gus Mafuta was shown a straight red card for a poor challenge on Jason Taylor.

But they levelled just before the hour mark with Matt Green, a recent signing from Lincoln, hitting a superb shot into the top corner.

After the sides traded late strikes, Blyth headed home in the fourth minute of time added on to extend Barrow's unbeaten league run to seven matches.
