Richie Baker's injury-time penalty earned Barrow a draw at struggling Newport County.

The visitors went into the lead when Adam Boyes headed in Paul Rutherford's early corner.

Nathaniel Jarvis equalised from inside the six-yard box after good work by Gary Warren.

The hosts went ahead when Danny Rose scored from close range but Baker levelled at the death after Ryan Gilligan fouled Andy Cook.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Newport manager Anthony Hudson told BBC Radio Wales:

"We've killed ourselves at the end. I think we had plenty of opportunities to kill them off.

"We've got to learn quickly. We've been in this position a couple of times and it's disappointing.

"There are a lot of positives, however it's a lot heavier to take in our position."

Barrow joint-boss Dave Bayliss tells BBC Radio Cumbria:

"It's the least we deserved, we battled really hard today.

"We didn't want to set up the way we started the game today, but we needed to give Andy Nicholas a bit of protection.

"I thought he was outstanding, and with 20 minutes to go we decided to go for it, and with a better option around the final third we could have won the game."
