Barrow vs Grimsby: Elding double denies Barrow
Want-away striker Anthony Elding struck a second-half brace to earn Grimsby a 2-2 draw at winless Barrow in the Blue Square Bet Premier.
Elding, reportedly wanted by Preston recently, has expressed a desire to leave Blundell Park, although the club insist he will not be sold until a replacement is found.
But he let his feet do the talking as he helped the Mariners extend their unbeaten run to five games.
Richie Baker, who was denied by Town goalkeeper James McKeown moments earlier, put Barrow ahead on the stroke of half-time from the penalty spot after Frankie Artus brought down Paul Rutherford.

Grimsby were unfortunate not to be on level terms as they hit the woodwork twice within the space of five minutes at the start of the second period, with Nathan Pond and Andy Cook hitting a post.
Barrow made the most of the let-off as they doubled their lead on the hour as Joseph Jackson found the bottom corner after being set up by Danny Rowe.
Elding pulled a goal back in the 67th minute, tapping in from close range after Joe Colbeck's shot was parried by keeper Danny Hurst.
He then levelled with seven minutes remaining as he converted from the spot after Colbeck was brought down by Tom Aldred.
