Tranmere Rovers 1-0 Barrow

James Norwood's goal in added time earned Tranmere a win over Barrow in the National League.

In a cagey start Norwood looked likeliest to provide a breakthrough, with a weak shot fumbled by visiting keeper Stuart Moore and Norwood later heading Jeff Hughes' cross just wide.

Ritchie Sutton had to be alert at the other end to clear off the line after Bedsente Gomis beat keeper Scott Davies to the ball, while Byron Harrison's header was disallowed for offside.

Midfielder Ollie Norburn twice went close and when Moore tipped his late effort away it looked to have secured Barrow a point.

But striker Norwood had other ideas and, after six minutes of added time were displayed, he slammed in the decisive goal.
