Leyton Orient came from behind to salvage a point against Barrow and keep their promotion hopes on track with a 1-1 draw at Holker Street.

After a low-key first-half, the game sparked into life three minutes after the break when Robbie Gotts opened the scoring for the hosts.

Barrow keeper Paul Farman then denied Leyton Orient’s Theo Archibald while at the other end Patrick Brough’s thumping drive hit the crossbar.

However, the O’s equaliser came in the 69th minute through Omar Beckles as the defender scrambled the ball home from Archibald’s corner.

And Kenny Jackett’s side might have snatched victory only for Farman to deny Archibald at the death.
