Buildbase FA Trophy Third Round Replay - The Hive London – Tuesday 12th February 2019 – KO: 19:45

Barnet return to action tomorrow night when they welcome Bostik Premier Division side Carshalton Athletic to The Hive London in the Buildbase FA Trophy third round replay.

The Bees will go into the game hoping to pick themselves up from Saturday’s league defeat at home to Sutton United. James Dobson’s 37th minute free-kick proved to be the only goal of the game as Darren Currie’s men fell to a 1-0 defeat.

Last Meeting:

The last time these two sides met was just over a week ago in the initial tie that finished 3-3. First half goals from Shaq Coulthirst and Ephron Mason-Clark gave the visitors a comfortable half-time lead. However, the Robins hit back on 69 minutes through Ola Sogbanmu but the celebrations were short-lived as Coulthirst netted again three minutes later. An own goal from Byron Harrison and a spot-kick converted by Bobby Price meant Carshalton completed an unlikely come-back, taking the tie to a replay.

Manager: Peter Adeniyi

Peter Adeniyi was appointed manager in April 2016 and quickly improved proceedings at Carshalton as the Robins narrowly missed out on a play-off spot in his first season in charge. However, he did manage to guide the club to promotion last campaign, winning the Isthmian League South Division title on 102 points.

Adeniyi also tasted promotion with Merstham in 2015 and wore the captain’s armband at Dulwich Hamlet. The Carshalton boss also played for the likes of Eastleigh, Lewes and Bromley.

One to Watch: Ricky Korboa

Injuries hampered Ricky Korboa’s form last season, stopping the forward from capitalising on his impressive goal tally during the 2016-17 campaign where he netted over 20 times.

However, hoping to regain that prolific form very soon, the youngster currently tops Carshalton’s leading scorers for this season. He will also be going into tomorrow’s replay full of confidence having bagged a brace at the weekend, taking his tally to six.

Korboa is yet to find the net in the FA Trophy this campaign though and will be hoping to end that drought tomorrow night and help his side cause an upset.

Last Season’s FA Trophy Form:

Carshalton have already exceeded last season’s FA Trophy run after they bowed out of the competition in the preliminary round, losing 2-0 away at Heybridge Swifts.

Lewis Godbold opened the scoring just past the half-hour mark before Joan Luque ensured progression to the next round.

This Season’s FA Trophy Run:

However, things are looking a lot more brighter this season as far as the FA Trophy is concerned. Entering the competition at the first qualifying stage, The Robins began their run with a 2-1 replay win over Metropolitan Police after the initial tie ended 2-2.

They played host to Harlow Town in the next round, beating them 3-1 before knocking out Walton Casuals 2-0 at the final stage of qualifying.

After booking their place in round one, they edged out Dorking Wanderers with a 1-0 win before beating Salisbury 4-1 to face Barnet in round three.

Recent Form In All Competitions:

Carshalton, who sit 14th in the Bostik Premier, are unbeaten in their last 5 games in all competitions, winning either side of three consecutive draws.

The Robins beat Hornchurch 2-1 just over three weeks ago before having to settle for a 2-2 draw away at Whitehawk in their next fixture. That dramatic tie at home to Barnet came next before another 3-3 score-line followed, this time away at Worthing. However, they do go into tomorrow’s game in high spirits having won at the weekend, beating Haringey Borough 3-1 at home.

Report | Barnet FC 2-1 Carshalton Athletic

12 February 2019

The crowd of 606 stood and appluaded in remembrance of England legend Gordon Banks as Barnet hosted Carshalton Athletic at The Hive for a place in the Quarter Finals of the Buildbase FA Trophy.

The two teams had played out an enthralling 3-3 draw less than two weeks ago and goals were aplenty again.

After dominating the opening proceedings, Barnet’s possession was rewarded with an early breakthrough. Not 10 minutes had passed before Wesley Fonguck’s low cross was tapped home by Shaq Coulthrist, it was a lovely build up, very typical of the type of football Darren Currie is trying to implement since taking over as Head Coach.

Wes Fonguck and Ephron Mason–Clark also went close during a first half where Barnet flexed their National League muscles over their Bostik league opponents.

However, Barnet were caught cold with Carshalton’s first real attack of the game. They counter attacked swiftly after Tommy Bradford pinched the ball away from Medy Elito in the midfield, he slotted through Jacob Mendy who made no mistake, calmly finishing past Will Huffer. While Carshalton's celebrations were certainly loud, they didn’t last long.

Less then 60 seconds later Barnet regained the lead, Shaq with a rasping effort. The unstoppable half volley flew past Ohman in the Robins goal into the top corner in another display of smashing one-touch build up.

Carshalton’s goal led a charmed life throughout the first half, their keeper was certainly busier than his opposite number. Ohman made a sublime save to his left to deny Shaq a half an hour hattrick and was indebted to his defenders and some poor finishing from the Bees for keeping it at just 2-1 at the half.

Unlike the first half, Barnet did not get out of the blocks quickly, Carshalton started the second on the front foot giving the Bees a strong wake-up call three minutes in when Bobby Price struck the post.

He had a lot of joy down the right wing and had his crossing been a bit more accurate, Barnet could have seen themselves pegged back. Christie Pattisson should have levelled the score after an unfortunate slip by Craig Robson allowed him to have a clean run on goal, however, Will Huffer was alive to the danger and spread himself well to thwart the Robins strikers attempt.

Barnet did settle after the early onslaught and could, maybe should, have killed the game off earlier. Wesley Fonguck spurned a huge opportunity blazing the ball over the bar off a volley 6 yards out. Shaq had plenty of chances to bag his hat trick as well, his finishing in the second half was not up to the standard he had set in the first. Ohman in the Robins goal certainly kept his team in it with a smart save from Medy Elito after some pretty flair play between Shaq and himself.

In the end, the Bees finished the game 2-1 victors on the night and will face a trip to AFC Fylde in the Quarter Final of the FA Trophy.
