Half Time: Gainsborough Trinity 1 Barrow 0
Gainsborough Trinity boss Steve Housham will be sitting in the dressing with a little more hope than he’s known for some time.
Housham has seen his young Trinity side more than match their visitors from Barrow, and, take a 1-0 lead into the break thanks to a very well-taken goal by on loan youngster Dan Clayton.
The opening goal came after 25 minutes and was nicely created down the right hand side with first-time passes from Conner Robinson and Liam Davis, who found Clayton in the middle. His first time shot showed more than an edge of composure for a young player.
It was a deserved goal which came after a number of openings created by the home side, with midfielder Simon Russell instrumental in most of Trinity’s good work.

Robinson did everything right on a glorious run down the right hand side 20 minutes in, but his shot was disappointingly dragged wide.
Clayton almost did it again with a free-kick from 25 yards out but his dipping, swerving shot was tipped over by Tony McMillan.
Barrow almost hit back on the stroke of half time, but Nick Ashton's shot went over the bar.
Other points of note from a promising first 45 minutes was the steady performance of 18-year-old Taylor McKenzie who was making his Trinity debut.
