Barnet’s League 2 season continued with a defeat against Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium on Saturday.

An impressive win in the midweek prior by Barnet, when the Bees saw off Northampton, couldn’t be build upon with the Conference rivals from last season Bristol Rovers running out three-one winners!

Bristol Rovers were ahead early on through Brown (2) with a late Easter (77) giving the Pirates a cushion. Weston (85) could have made for an uncomfortable final few minutes but Taylor (87) soon made sure when he added a third Bristol Rovers.

These were the match highlights.

The other results this weekend were as follows:-

Bristol R 3 – 1 Barnet
Cambridge Utd 0 – 3 Crawley
Carlisle 1 – 1 AFC W’don
Exeter 0 – 0 York City
Mansfield 1 – 1 Oxford Utd
Newport 2 – 3 Leyton Or
Northamptn 0 – 2 Plymouth
Notts Co 1 – 1 Accrington
Portsmth 3 – 3 Morecambe
Stevenage 2 – 0 Hartlepool
Wycombe 1 – 1 Dag + Red
Yeovil 3 – 2 Luton

Looking at these results the stand out ones have to be the wins for Crawley, Stevenage and Yeovil, all winning for the first time this season!

Crawley’s three-nil win against Cambridge, who had been free scoring but also conceding goals too mind, was all the more impressive given this first win of the campaign came away from home for the Reds at the Abbey Stadium.

It was also an impressive scalp for Teddy Sheringham’s Stevenage with the former England striker getting his first win in management by guiding Boro to a two-nil win at Broadhall Way against a Hartlepool side that previously had a 100% record in league and cup.

Was the result of the League 2 weekend Yeovil’s three-two win against Luton? Quite possible so! The Hatters haven’t found the going easy so far this season but not only did Yeovil win for a first time this season the Glovers came back from two-goals down to secure this three-two win at Huish Park!

The Bees are back in action this weekend with a League 2 game against Cambridge at the Hive, however before that of course comes the League Cup tie at Molineux against Championship side Wolves as Barnet seek another upset!
