Barrow earned an attractive FA Cup replay after holding League One Ipswich to a goalless draw at Portman Road.
The two teams had never met each other in a competitive encounter but the League Two Bluebirds held their own against the Tractor Boys, who hit the woodwork twice.
The visitors enjoyed a confident start to the game and Josh Kay dragged a shot wide in the sixth minute after cutting in from the left.
Ipswich goalkeeper Christian Walton tipped a smart free-kick from Josh Gordon around a post and the same player was flagged offside from the resulting corner when he sent a header against the woodwork.
The Tractor Boys were struggling to find any real rhythm but Scott Fraser’s rising long-range effort tested visiting goalkeeper Paul Farman in the 24th minute.
The hosts started the second half with purpose and striker Joe Pigott, a half-time substitute for Idris El Mizouni, struck a post just after the break.
But the Bluebirds were still posing a threat and Kay saw two well-struck efforts deflected behind within three minutes.
The home side piled on some late pressure and Town skipper Sam Morsy fired over in added time before substitute Cameron Humphreys sent a header against the crossbar.
