A late penalty from top scorer Stu Wilson sank Dunkirk five minutes into added time in a close encoutner.
A brace from Ade Adelukan in a closely fought game with league strugglers Radford saw The Riversiders grab all three points.
The Riversiders bagged all three points in the tricky away trip to The Welfare.
A thrilling one all draw was witnessed by a disappointing crowd of 63 at Riverside Park.
As good a performance as I have seen so far this season (for seventy minutes anyway) saw The Riversiders run a good Heanor Town side close.
The Riversider’s slipped to their fourth successive league defeat after a poor first half performance left them with too much to do for a share of the points with Leicestershire neighbours Ellistown.
A combination of wasteful finishing and resolute defending saw St Andrews return to Canal Street with all three points.
Giving a competent Gedling side (second in the table at kick off time) a three-nil lead was never going to be a recipe for success.
A four goal salvo from Scott Maclennan, a belter for debutant Aaron Dignum and a Dave Hollis goal saw off an under strength Graham Street Prims.
But for the heroics of Anstey keeper Danny Hanley this result could easily have ended in double figures for Barrow.
Barrow left it deep into injury time to grab all three points, Stu Wilson netting the all important goal with the aid of a fortuitous deflection.
No accounting for mood, this game had everything the Ibstock game lacked, Barrow opening with some incisive attacking play.
Encounters between the two sides are usually dour affairs, and this was no exception.
Nice to get three points in the bag, the Riversiders first home outing should have yielded a much more decisive victory against a workmanlike Blackwell side who looked dangerous going forward but vulnerable in defence.
Scant consolation that the Riversiders deserved a share of the spoils, two mistakes at the back and Rob Gill gifted a brace of goals.
