BARNET DRAW SEES THE CHERRIES DROP TO SECOND

Brett Pitman scored his 11th league goal of the season to ensure the visitors a valuable point. The Cherries were looking to cement their place at the summit of League Two, but it was the home side who started with more intent.

Unbeaten at home this season Barnet looked to get ahead. However, the Cherries had several half chances with Hollands and Pitman having shots saved before the home side took the lead. John O’Flynn had a shot at goal that looked to have been kicked off the line, but the referee decided that it had gone over the line. The home side went on to create several more chances and should have gone further ahead. However, with half-time looming Liam Feeney teed up Brett Pitman who drew the Cherries level with his 11th League goal of the season.

HALF TIME 1-1.

The start of the second half saw Alan Connell replaced by Steve Fletcher. The Cherries upped their game but still struggled to create too many clear cut chances. With half an hour left the hosts made a change and brought on veteran Paul Furlong to lead the line. It was the Cherries who made the next real chance with a well struck Lee Bradbury shot saved by the keeper. With 15 minutes left the Cherries had the ideal opportunity to take the lead as Brett Pitman won a penalty. Pitman stepped up and had his shot well saved from the spot. The Cherries pushed forward looking for the winner that would guarantee top spot, but a resolute Barnet defence held firm to seal a point.
