Luke James strike earns 10-man Barrow win at Maidenhead

Strugglers Barrow held on for a 1-0 win at Maidenhead despite being reduced to 10 men as they moved three points clear of the National League relegation zone.
Luke James scored the vital goal which claimed the visitors' ninth win of the season as they climbed into 19th place in the standings.
Maidenhead's Sean Marks had a penalty shout waved away in the 37th minute before James finally broke the deadlock for Barrow four minutes into the second half when his low shot beat goalkeeper Carl Pentney.
Maidenhead's best chance of the game came in the 70th minute when Sam Barratt's ball in was agonisingly too long for the onrushing attack.
Barrow were reduced to 10 men with nine minutes remaining when Bedsente Gomis was sent off for a challenge on Barratt to earn his second yellow card, but they held on to claim a vital three points.
