Barnet Football Club



Match Report: Barnet 0-0 Solihull Moors

Darren Currie was handed a boost as he welcomed Dan Sweeney and Harry Taylor into the starting XI, meanwhile Mauro Vilhete made his first home start of the season. 

The visitors had the first chance of the afternoon as Jamie Reckord’s cross was headed over by Paul McCullum from six yards out. 

Up the other end Wes Fonguck played in Mauro Vilhete but the midfielders effort deflected wide of the post. 

The Bees should have been ahead after 22 minutes as Callum Reynolds connected with Akinola’s knock down, but the skippers effort was parried away by Ryan Boot. 

Currie’s side certainly had the better of the opening half hour, playing some neat football which led to two chances for Alfie Pavey who was hounded out by The Moors defence. 

Seven minutes before the break Pavey found J Taylor 25 yards out but the Irish midfielder fired over the bar. 

A minute before the break Ricardo Santos made a chance saving challenge as Daniel Wright broke through on goal in a rare Moors attack. 

Into the second half and it was The Bees who started the brighter of the two sides as Fonguck did superbly to beat his man then unleash a strike with the outside of the boot, however Boot was equal to it. 

With 25 minutes left on the clock, it was Currie’s side again who were on the front foot as the ball looped in the box, Sweeney poked goalwards before Vilhete turned it towards the corner, but it was Boot again to the rescure for The Moors. 

Five minutes later and it was Fonguck with another powerful drive towards the bottom corner but yet again the Moors stopper got down well to deny the midfielder the opening goal of the game. 

A minute later it was the visitors turn to threaten as Reckord flashed a low driven cross across the face of goal, but there were no blue shirts to turn it home.

With 10 minutes left Pavey had the ball in the back of the net but it was disallowed for handball by the Bees number 9. 

Up next for The Bees it’s a long trip to Lancishire as they face AFC Fylde on Tuesday night and will look to get back to winning ways.
