Preview | FC Halifax Town (h)

11 March 2019

Vanarama National League – The Hive London – Tuesday 12th March 2019 – KO: 19:45

Barnet will be hoping to bounce back from Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Gateshead when they host Halifax Town tomorrow night.

Last Meeting:

It was only a week ago since these two sides last met with the Bees falling to a 3-0 defeat at The Shay.

Devante Rodney found the net on 36 minutes before James Perry made it 2-0 just shy of the hour mark. The game was put out of Barnet’s reach with just over 15 minutes remaining when former Bee Manny Duku added a third.

Manager: Jamie Fullarton

Jamie Fullarton has been in charge of the Shaymen for just over a year now.

The 44-year-old began his managerial career at Notts County in 2016 but left the club after just 12 games in charge.

As a player, Fullarton started out at St Mirren before going on to play for the likes of Crystal Palace, Dundee United, Brentford and Southend before hanging up his boots in 2005 whilst at Woodlands Wellington. He also represented Scotland at Under-21 level and captained the side at the 1996 U21 European Championship.

After retirement, Fullarton was part of the coaching staff at Nottingham Forest, Bolton, Blackburn and was first team coach at Crystal Palace.

One to Watch: Matty Kosylo

Midfielder Matty Kosylo will be hoping to pose a threat again tomorrow night, having caused the Bees all sorts of problems last time out.

He hasn’t found the net since November though and will be eager to end that drought when his side travel to North London tomorrow, adding to his goal tally of four for the season.

Recent League Form:

Halifax Town, who sit 15th, are unbeaten in their least five league games.

The Shaymen drew 0-0 with Aldershot last month before beating Maidstone United 1-0 three days later. However, they were held to another goalless draw in their next fixture when playing host to Havant & Waterlooville before beating Eastleigh 1-0. They go into tomorrow’s game off the back of that 3-0 win against us last Tuesday.

As for their away form, Halifax have only won four out of their 18 games on the road this season. They have also scored 31, conceding 32.

Last 5 league games: DWDWW

Connections:

Defender Ryan Sellers spent a couple of years in the Barnet academy as a youngster but never played in the senior side, leaving in 2014 for Bolton.

Ben Tomlinson joined the Bees from Lincoln City in 2015 and went on to make 12 appearances for the club before leaving in 2017 after a succession of loan spells away from The Hive London.

Manny Duku joined Barnet on loan in October 2018 from Cheltenham Town but returned to his parent club in the New Year ahead of another loan move to Halifax a month later.

Report | Barnet FC 1-1 FC Halifax Town

12 March 2019

Honours even at The Hive as the Bees draw 1-1 with Halifax Town.

On a bitterly cold night at The Hive, Barnet FC met Halifax Town, a week after their last meeting, where the Bees were defeated 3-0. 

Barnet start the stronger out of the two teams with a flurry of Alexander crosses from the right-hand side.

Barnet’s goal started with some great play from Mason-Clark, as he plucked the ball out the air on the edge of the box, offloaded it to Wesley Fonguck, who got it out from under his feet quickly and finished smartly into the top corner of the Halifax goal.

Halifax’s and former Bee Manny Duku had a header and was saved very well by Cousins.

In the 30th minute, it was very clever play again from Mason-Clark who cuts in from the right and found Tarpey who had to work extremely hard to get his shot away. With quick reactions from Halifax keeper, Johnson, he sent it behind for a corner. The resulting corner was taken quickly and found Sweeney at the near post who headed wide.

Barnet dominated possession. Most of the attack came from the right-hand side with Alexander and Fonguck link up play.

Half time – After the additional 3 minutes The Bees went in at half time with a well-deserved 1-0 lead. The Bees then started the second half with same quick, attacking play that suited them so well in the first half.

The ball was picked up from Mason Clark who ran with it from his own half, 40 yards up the pitch finding Fonguck who struggled to get to release his shot. Eventually after being pinged around in the Halifax box, the keeper grabbed the ball.

In the 54th minute a long ball over the top found Tarpey who ran brilliantly with the ball, cutting in from the left onto his right, dummies the shot, once, twice and at the third attempt the shot is blocked.

Half way through the second half Sparks took a corner, laid it off to Alexander who then found Sweeney at the back post whose header thundered off the near post.

8 minutes later the visitors equalised, with a ball through the middle of The Bees’ defence found Devante Rodney, who took one touch and found the far corner of Cousins net.

The last 10 minutes saw The Bees with the lion’s share of possession but could not find the Halifax goal despite good play.

As the board went up for four additional minutes, Tarpey whipped in a delightful free-kick from the left-hand side narrowly missing Akinola’s outstretched leg.

Barnet threw everything at Halifax in the dying embers of the game however the ref ended what was a frustrating game for The Bees who have to share the points with Halifax. Barnet will feel extremely hard done by not to get the full 3 points. Darren Currie’s Barnet will play at The Hive on Saturday against Hartlepool.
