Barrow 0-1 Swindon Town

Lewis Reed’s seventh-minute penalty saw Swindon beat Barrow 1–0 and climb to fourth in League Two.

It was one of only two matches played in the Fourth Division due to weather, with referee Robert Lewis deeming the Holker Street pitch suitable at 12.30 BST after a second check.

Bluebirds goalkeeper Paul Farman conceded the penalty when he cut down Jacob Wakeling after Tyrell Warren’s poor pass.

Reid made no mistake from 12 yards and buried his first goal of the season in the bottom corner.

Farman made some excellent saves to keep the hosts in the game as Wakeling, Therese Shedd and former Bluebird Remio Houghton were denied.

Pete Wild’s team desperately paid for a late settlement.

Ritchie Bennett came so close his header shot cleared Varnish from the outside of the post before Patrick Brough’s shot was cleared.

Furman’s best save was drawn at the end as he denied Tommy Adeloy one-on-one.

Wild’s Barrow started the day in fourth place, but failed to capitalize on call-ups as they dropped to sixth – five spots out of the top three.

Town are one point ahead after their first win since the end of October.
