With Newport not playing on Saturday, United had the opportunity to leapfrog them at the top and looked on track to do so after Joe Ironside put them in front at the Abbey Stadium. But Matthew Platt struck late for Barrow to deny them.

They remain second, while Cheltenham moved up to third with a 2-1 win at Carlisle. Will Boyle and a Conor Thomas penalty in the first half sealed that win for Michael Duff's side.

Southend claimed a first win of the season as Emile Acquah struck late in a 1-0 win at Walsall, although it wasn't enough to lift them off the bottom of the table.

That is because 23rd-placed Scunthorpe also won as they saw off Oldham 2-0 at Boundary Park. Jacob Bedeau and Kevin van Veen scored the goals for the Iron.
