Barrow and AFC Telford were unable to break the deadlock in their opening game of the season.

The hosts looked to be on top in the opening stages, and came close to an early goal when Adam Boyes fire wide from the edge of the box.

Boyes then spurned another good opportunity for the Bluebirds as he saw a volley fly just wide of the mark.

Steve Leslie had a chance for the visitors late on, but his long-range shot went wide of the right-hand post.
