Barnet Mad looks back on previous meetings between the Bees & Pompey
Barnet and Portsmouth meet on Tuesday at Fratton Park in the 1st round of the Carling Cup. The clubs have only met once before in a competitive match and that was back in the 1990/91 season when the Bees won the Conference for the first time. Portsmouth were in the old Second Division (now Championship) and the two clubs met in the 3rd round of the FA Cup at Underhill.
The Bees gave a very disappointing performance, getting hammered 5-0 in front of a crowd of over 6,200.Barnet were completely outclassed and manager, Barry Fry commented that the home side played like a “Sunday morning pub side.” The Barnet side that day was; Phillips, Poole, Cooper, Bodley, Wilson, Richardson, Turner, Clarke, Bull, willis, Durham. Subs: Stein, Hayrettin.
