Barrow 0-0 Ebbsfleet United

Barrow and Ebbsfleet both missed the opportunity to close in on the National League play-off places after drawing 0-0 at Holker Street.

A fourth draw in five outings left the hosts 10 points off the top seven and six behind their opponents, who recorded a second successive goalless stalemate.

There was little excitement in the first half, but Barrow's Jason Taylor picked up his 10th booking of the campaign following a foul on Michael Cheek - one of five cautions the hosts received during the game.

Barrow had the ball in the net twice, but on both occasions - Josh Kay in the first half and John Rooney in the second - the flag was up for offside.

The hosts nearly found a way through in the final minute but substitute Luke Burgess saw his effort bounce off the ground and over the crossbar.
