Non-league football: Barrow Town keep up pressure at top of EMCL
Barrow Town kept up the pressure on leaders Basford with a 6-0 demolition of Lutterworth Athletic.
They were quick out of the traps with Carl Adams (2), Jamie Allen and Michael Paparozzi putting them 4-0 ahead at half-time.
Lutterworth's cause wasn't helped by the dismissal of keeper Mark Lill and Barrow made them pay with further goals from Cameron Gray, with a penalty, and Craig Noble.
Basford also recorded a big win, 5-0 at struggling Ellistown, all their goals coming in the second half.
