The Bluebirds fell to a narrow 3-2 defeat at Chester on Tuesday night.


After going behind 2-0 midway through the first half an extraordinary two minutes of stoppage time at the end of the first half saw goals from Byron Harrison and Adi Yussuf to make it 2-2.

After having the better of the second half, a Dawson goal for the hosts in the 95th minute broke Barrow hearts.
