Stockport County 3-2 Barrow
Stockport came out on top in a five-goal thriller with Barrow to secure a first win back in the National League.
Ben Jackson had already forced a fine save from Joel Dixon when the home side fell behind in the fourth minute. Scott Quigley raced clear one-on-one with the goalkeeper and slotted home.
Dixon denied Adam Thomas and Elliot Osborne, Frank Mulhern and Paul Turnbull all had chances as County looked to level before the break.
The Hatters equalised early in the second half when Mulhern flicked in an inviting cross from Thomas and were ahead four minutes later as Jordan Keane found the bottom corner with a powerful drive from distance.
Barrow hauled themselves level through a John Rooney free-kick in the 68th minute but Thomas converted a low cross from substitute Jake Kirby to win it shortly afterwards.
