Barnet’s League 2 season continued with a win against Dagenham at the Hive on Saturday.

It’s now back-to-back wins for Barnet following a three-one win against Accrington, with the Bees ahead in the opening minute when Gash (1) scored with it two when Yiadom (34) fired home from range before the break.

The points were secured when Gash (56) scored early in the second half with Akinde hitting the post before a consolation for Dagenham through Jones’ (66) freekick but the job was done by Barnet with the Bees up to 18th.

These were the match highlights.

Cambridge 1-0 Stevenage
Carlisle 0-1 Newport
Crawley 0-3 Accrington
Exeter 0-2 Wycombe

Notts County 1-0 York
Oxford Utd 0-0 Morecambe
Yeovil 1-2 Hartlepool

Looking at these results the stand out ones have to be the wins for, you have to say, Barnet, Newport and Notts County.

It might have been a change at the top with Portsmouth winning at Bristol Rovers to take the lead in League 2 but it was wins at the other end of the table that make most difference in many ways!

Barnet, since a defeat at Pompey funnily enough at which time boss Martin Allen insisted wins were coming, extended an unbeaten run to two-matches with both of them won! A three-one win at the Hive against struggling Dagenham wasn’t a surprise in itself but it keeps some momentum going for the Bees.

A midweek four-one thrashing of struggling Crawley, who shipped three-goals again in another defeat, saw Notts County hope grow that finally the season could be up and running? County followed that up with a one-nil win at Meadow Lane against York, maybe this is the case now!

The standout result though has to be Newport’s win at Carlisle? The one-nil win for the Exiles not only saw them win for the first time this season, it wasn’t enough to take them off the foot of the League 2 table though, it also saw Terry Butcher’s side end the Blues’ own unbeaten run and came just a matter of days after they came within a penalty shootout of knocking Liverpool out of the League Cup.

Maybe that game at Anfield took more out of Carlisle, mentally and physically, than thought? Either way Butcher said Newport were improving, they followed up a draw last weekend with a win so he’s right!

Barnet are back in action this midweek with another League 2 game against Plymouth at Home Park on Tuesday.
