Richie Baker scored a hat-trick as Barrow defeated Ebbsfleet United.

Baker opened the scoring with a neat volley from inside the area and grabbed his second from the penalty spot either side of a Phil Walsh own goal.

Tom Phipp pulled one back for Ebbsfleet from outside the area before Nathan Elder headed home to make it 3-2.

But despite Barrow's Sean Hessey being sent off for two bookings in two minutes, Baker secured the points with a 20-yard free-kick.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Ebbsfleet manager Liam Daish told BBC Radio Kent:

We have to learn to defend - Daish

"I was very disappointed with the first half. We started ok but out of nowhere found ourselves 3-0 down, from nothing clever.

"As much as we work on things going forward, if we can't defend those situations, we're always going to be up against it.

"(At 2-3) I thought we could even go on and win but they scored the fourth goal with the free-kick and then they had something to hang on to.

"Players have to learn from their mistakes and learn how dangerous situations are and how to defend properly."
