Southwell start for in place of Greg Pearson.
In the early stages Barrow looked the more dangerous of the sides.
In a half of few chances McKeown had to make a great save to deny Barrow just before half time.
In first half injury time and with Grimsby temporarily down to 10 men with Pearson off injured, Frankie Artus brought a player down to give the home side a penalty, from which they scored.
Town almost equalised at the start of the second half from a corner but Pond's effort hit the post.
From another corner Pearson seemed to have hit the ball over the line, but it was adjudged not to have gone over the line.
Jackson added a second when substitute Andi Thanoj gave the ball away straight after coming on, and Roe crossed for Jackson.
Town claimed a lifeline with the two substitutes contributing. Thanoj played a brilliant ball to Colbeck who crossed for Elding to tap it in.
Town then won a pen when Colbeck was tripped and Elding scored to level. Almost immediately Southwell headed over from a great chance for Town to win it.
Both teams had late chances but Town can be pleased with a good point in the end.
Town: McKeown, Wood, Pond, S Pearson, Thomas, Colbeck, Niven, Artus, Disley, Southwell, Cook
Subs: Hatton, Elding, Ford, Soares, Thanoj. Match Thread
