Torquay United 1 Barnet 2

Barnet went 9 points clear at the top of the Conference table with a fine away win at Plainmoor despite finishing the game with 9 men.

Mauro VILHETE, who was in the side due to Luisma's injury, opened the scoring after just 15 minutes with a superb shot from the edge of the area that found the top corner.

However, disaster struck when Bondz N'Gala was sent off for a professional foul. The numbers were soon evened up when Torquay centre back, Aaron Downes was sent off for an altercation with John Akinde in the penalty area on 40 minutes. The referee awarded barnet a penalty and AKINDE made no mistake from the spot.
