Ryan Bird earned Dover a Vanarama National League point as they came from behind to draw against Barrow at Crabble.
The Whites struggled to make an impression for long periods and went behind six minutes after the break when Jordan White headed home his third goal of the season.
Boss Chris Kinnear responded by making a double substitution, sending on Tobi Sho-Silva and Kadell Daniel - the latter making a big impact, and setting up Bird to head home 18 minutes from time.
Dover lived dangerously at the end as Barrow's Bedsente Gomis missed a great chance with a poor finish after substitute Dan Cockerline had earlier screwed the ball wide as the Cumbrians broke two on one.
Loui Fazakerley replaced Josh Passley at right-back, who dropped out due to illness, in the only change from the team that won 2-1 at Halifax in midweek.
Dover were forced to make an early change when Giancarlo Gallifuoco limped off after 29 minutes with an injury to his left foot, and was replaced by George Essuman - his first action in a Dover shirt.
Jamie Allen fired over early on before Kane Richards' cross fell just in front of Bird.
Barrow came close to breaking the deadlock when Harry Panayiotou's effort from close to the right-hand corner flag seemed to come off the bar.
The Barrow striker was then denied by keeper Mitch Walker, who saved well to deny French defender Thierry Audel after his run into the box from the halfway line. Barrow keeper Stuart Moore also did well at the feet of Bird.
