Barrow 2-3 Leyton Orient
Promotion-chasing Leyton Orient climbed to second in the National League with a nervy win at mid-table Barrow.
Orient went ahead in the 13th minute at Holker Street when full-back Sam Ling beat Barrow goalkeeper Joel Dixon from wide on the right.
Striker Jay Simpson doubled the advantage two minutes into the second period by slotting home his first goal since returning to the club following a spell in Major League Soccer.
And Jordan Maguire-Drew slammed in a third in the 69th minute.
A deflected effort from Josh Kay in the 71st minute and Rhys Turner's close-range effort four minutes later set up a tense finish but the O's held on to move two points behind leaders Wrexham.
