Four-midable Barrow celebrate Easter in style.

Barrow fired back from defeat at Crewe on Good Friday with an impressive win against relegation threatened Crawley.

A change of formation and five changes to the starting 11 got Barrow off to a storming start in the 17th minute, when Gordon slid in at the back post to tap in a fantastic fizzed cross from Elliot Newby.

Gordon thought he had the second of the game shortly after only for the referee to blow his whistle and halt celebrations due to a handball in the build-up.

Ged Garner came close to adding a secondly shortly before half time with a well struck free kick just wide of the post.

Half Time: Barrow 1-0 Crawley Town

Barrow’s dominance after half time shone through with Gordon doubling his tally at the back post on 47 minutes, a well worked long throw by Rory Feely was flicked on by Harrison Neal onto the head of Gordon who knocked it past Corey Addai in the visitor’s goal.

On 55th minutes a scintillating pass from Sam McClelland at the heart of defence, found Robbie Gotts, who played a ball across the box in which Garner was fouled in the box, Gordon stepped up and made no mistake for his third of the game.

Ben Whitfield and Jake Young replaced Elliot Newby and Josh Gordon after 66th Minutes and Pete Wild looked to strengthen the lead.

With Barrow firmly on top two more changes were made on the 72nd minute with Tyrell Warren and Sam Foley replacing Patrick Brough and Harrison Neal.

Ged Garner opened his account for the club with a looping header on 81 minutes after Jake Young saw his effort saved by Addai, this was Garner’s last act as he was replaced by Josh Kay straight after.

Full Time: Barrow 4-0 Crawley Town
