League Two leaders Notts County were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw in their first English Football League meeting with Barrow since 1970.
David McGoldrick opened the scoring with a 14th-minute penalty, but Dean Campbell rescued a point for the hosts with a spot-kick of his own 10 minutes from time at Holker Street.
Former Wales international James Chester gave away a penalty for the second game running as he tripped Macauley Langstaff.
Ex-Sheffield United striker McGoldrick made no mistake as he cooly slotted home from 12 yards.
Barrow missed a host of chances to restore parity. County goalkeeper Aidan Stone produced some fine saves to keep the hosts at bay.
Ged Garner and Emile Acquah both squandered great opportunities to level.
Paul Farman produced a good stop to keep Chester from diverting a cross into his own net.
Acquah earned Barrow a penalty of their own when his header hit an arm before Campbell fired into the bottom corner.
Stone ensured the spoils were shared with a late save to deny Ben Whitfield.
