Dimitri Sea scored the only goal of the game as Barrow ran out winners over a young Nottingham Forest side on Monday afternoon.
The French forward helped himself to his third goal of pre-season when he converted from close range in the friendly staged behind closed doors at The Reds’ Nigel Doughty Academy training ground.
A tight first half was punctuated by only a couple of good opportunities; Jamie Devitt came closest for The Bluebirds but his long-range effort was saved down to his left by Forest keeper Jordan Smith.
Things continued in a similar vein after the break, and it looked as though the game was drifting towards a draw until Sea’s decisive intervention on 71 minutes.
