Luke Mawbey at Holker Street

Mansfield Town fell to their first defeat of the season at Holker Street this afternoon. Having played reasonably well and created several decent chances, the Stags will be bitterly disappointed to have conceded at the end of each half, especially having the taken the lead in the first half. There were however many positives to take, and with two home games to follow in the next week, many will not only hope but believe from today's showing that six points is more than within our grasp.

Jason Walker headed an 88th-minute winner for Barrow to secure victory over Mansfield.

However, the lead lasted only three minutes as Lee Hunt's effort deflected in off defender Alan O'Hare.

And with time running out, Walker headed in Mark Boyd's inswinging corner past Patrick Gamble to claim all three points for Barrow.
