Forest Green's fading play-off hopes were further dented by a draw with struggling Barrow.
James Norwood put the hosts ahead by slotting home from Matt Taylor's pass.
The Bluebirds levelled after the break when Richie Baker found the bottom corner from the edge of the area.
Barrow, who have now moved out of the relegation zone, nearly won it late on with Baker hitting the post and Sean McConville drawing a fine save from home keeper Sam Russell.

Forest Green Rovers manager Dave Hockaday told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:
"We're starting games well and getting on top. Today we've put the ball in the back of the net, and we've had chances to score more and kill the game.
"We've had chances, and we've left ourselves open because we're pushing for the win. We shot ourselves in the foot nearly a couple of times, so it was an exciting game for the neutral but not me.
"I thought the movement up front was much better than it has been of late, we've created a lot of chances and it was only counter attacks or maybe set-pieces where they were going to score.
"When we're on top we really do have to put sides to the sword. Barrow came here battling and slowed it down, and they stopped us getting our rhythm."
