Sam Barratt’s first goal for The Bees was enough to earn a draw at The Hive against League Two MK Dons.
It took just twelve minutes for The Bees to take the lead. Laurie Walker’s long ball found Sam Barratt on the edge of the Milton Keynes box. Barratt’s first attempt was well saved by the keeper, but the rebound was simply tapped in to give Barnet the lead.
Idris Kanu came close for The Bees just moments later when his powerful header went narrowly wide of goal. Another cross was sent towards the back post of the MK goal. The ball found Reece Hall-Johnson, who went for the half-volley but could only find the side netting.
Hall-Johnson was involved again when he sent a long ball to Nicke Kabamba. Kabamba neatly controlled the ball on the edge of the Milton Keynes box before unleashing a low driven shot at goal, which was saved by the keeper.
The final chance of the half fell to Danny Collinge who headed over Kanu’s corner.
HT: Barnet FC 1-0 MK Dons
After a dominant display in the first half from The Bees, it was MK who started the second half strongest.
The visitors levelled the score after fifty-four minutes through Mo Eisa.
Dean Brennan then made a number of changes at the hour mark, with the likes of Marvin Armstrong, Moussa Diarra, and Callum Stead coming on.
Moussa Diarra went down after being on the pitch for just six minutes and was substituted for a trialist.
Barnet’s best chance of the second half came when a corner found Courtney Senior at the back post, but he could only head the ball wide.
