Barnet’s League 2 season continued with a win against Oxford at the Kassam Stadium on Saturday.

A ‘five-goal thriller’ was witnessed at the weekend as Barnet caused an upset to beat Oxford three-two with this a result for the Bees that many hadn’t scripted!

Having fallen behind to a Liam Sercombe (14) goal early on Barnet roared back into the game with Curtis Weston (26) getting the ball rolling as he equalised to get a run of three-goals in five-minutes going for the Bees! John Akinde (29) and Josh Clarke (31) made it three-one a little past the half hour mark.

Sercombe (40) got one back for Oxford before the break but Barnet saw it out to inflict a first home defeat on the U’s this season with the win moving the Bees up to 18th.

The other results this weekend were as follows:-

Saturday 24th October
Accrington 3-1 Dag & Red
Bristol Rovers 1-4 Newport
Exeter 1-1 Notts County
Hartlepool 1-2 Crawley
Luton 1-2 Plymouth
Morecambe 0-1 Leyton Orient
Northampton 2-1 Stevenage
Oxford Utd 2-3 Barnet
Portsmouth 0-0 Mansfield
Wycombe 1-1 Carlisle
Yeovil 2-3 Cambridge
York 1-3 Wimbledon

Looking at these results the stand out ones have to be the wins for Newport, Plymouth and of course Barnet.

Another Newport win was secured, with the improvement under Sheridan continuing, with an impressive four-one win at Bristol Rovers! This win not only secured the Exiles the three-points at the Memorial Stadium it also saw them off the foot of the Football League!

Plymouth winning at Luton might not be especially ‘stand out’ but this two-one win at Kenilworth Road meant the Pilgrims not only retained top spot but were able to extend that lead over others too.

Barnet are back in action with another game against Exeter at the Hive on Saturday
