Nuneaton Town 0 Barnet 2

Barnet manager, Martin Allen reverted to the side that won the two opening games of the season, restoring Mauro Vilhete to the side with Keanu Marsh-Brown dropping back to the subs bench.

The Bees got off to a fantastic start when the referee awarded Barnet a penalty after just 7 minutes; Anton Brown conceding the penalty with a bad foul. Charlie MACDONALD firing home the spot kick with a shot into the bottom left hand corner of the net.

In the 13th minute, Barnet went 2-0 up when MACDONALD hit a shot from the six yard box into the bottom left corner. Barnet almost made it three soon afterwards when Lee Cook had a shot saved by Nuneaton keeper, Charles-Cook.

HT: Nuneaton 0 Barnet 2

Barnet had a great chance to virtually kill off the game on 66 minutes when they were awarded a second penalty after Delroy Gordon committed a foul on John Akinde in the penalty area, but MacDonald saw his shot saved by the Nuneaton keeper and shortly afterwards he was substituted by Keanu Marsh-Brown. Two minutes later, Sam Muggleton came on for Lee Cook.

After this, Barnet held on to win comfortably to make it three wins out of four and nine points at the start of the season. With this win, Barnet moved up to 4th in the table. Next match, Dartford at the Hive on Monday.
