Lions win in Martin's last game in charge

Heanor Town 3-0 Barrow Town

The Lions produced a dominant display to beat Barrow Town 3-0 in what has turned out to be manager Dan Martin's final game in charge.

It took just thirteen minutes for the Lions to break the deadlock. Cory Bowler's pinpoint free-kick rooted the Barrow 'keeper to the spot before finding the back of the net via the post.

Rob Ritchie-Smith almost made it 2-0 seconds later, shooting wide from inside the penalty area.

Daniel Chatfield fired just over before Heanor's lead was doubled five minutes before the interval. Kyle Daley's brave header released Jamie Sleigh and he made no mistake firing into the corner from a tight angle.

It was no more than the Lions deserved after a confident first half.

The second half saw Heanor sit back a little more but Barrow were unable to create any clear-cut chances to reduce the deficit.

The Riversiders were given a helping hand by referee Lewis Morgan, though.

Ten minutes after coming on as a substitute, Oliver Roome was shown a straight red card. Whilst challenging for an aerial ball Barrow's Chris Davies went to ground and Roome was given his marching orders. The incident sparked the second half into life and the game threatened to boil over.

Six minutes later, Barrow were given another lifeline. Cory Bowler's innocuous challenge on James Parker was enough to earn him a second yellow card and the Lions were reduced to nine men.

Barrow were still unable to create opportunities despite have a two-man advantage, and it was the Lions who added to scoreline. Jordan Ball expertly plucking a high ball out the sky before smashing beyond the 'keeper at his near post.

It was the final act in a game which was action-packed and the Town Ground was rocked by the news that Dan Martin resigned as manager after the game.

The Lions now head into next week's match with Selston looking for a new manager.
