Barrow 1-0 Aldershot Town

Barrow maintained their three-point advantage at the top of the National League with a 1-0 victory against Aldershot.

Lewis Hardcastle had an early effort from 25 yards for the hosts.

Aldershot should have had a penalty when Matt Platt brought down Lewis Walker in the area but referee Joe Johnson waved away the appeals.

John Rooney forced Mitch Walker into a save before the Barrow striker helped put his side ahead in the 22nd minute when his effort found the net via a deflection off team-mate Dior Angus.

Barrow's Josh Kay blazed over from close range in front of an empty net after Scott Quigley played him through, while Rooney went close on several occasions as Barrow pushed for a second goal, but the Bluebirds held on to extend their unbeaten streak to seven games.
