Vanarama National League

THE STONES

League Position: 10th (P12 W5 D2 L5)

Last Result: Wealdstone 1-2 Torquay United (Vanarama National League, Tuesday 1st December)

Manager: Dean Brennan

Club Captain: Jerome Okimo

Having been promoted as Champions from the National League South last season, the Stones have since made a decent impression in the Vanarama National League, as they sit just off the play-off places after their first 12 matches. 

However, they have found wins hard to come by in recent weeks, with their last coming against Halifax Town, nearly a month ago. However, their four league games since they last won have all come against teams currently above them in the league, including top of the table Torquay United, who needed a last minute goal to snatch the three points.

Despite their current league position, Wealdstone have played the 2nd most games in the league, with most teams around them having one or two games in hand on them, with Stockport, who are three places below even having five games in hand on the Stones. With this, they also boast the 2nd worst defensive record, having conceded 25 goals already.

This will be the first meeting between the sides for 18 years and given the history between the Stones and the Bees, this may act as added motivation for the visitors to get a result.

THE BEES

The Bees come into Saturday’s fixture after a heavy defeat on the road to Halifax Town on Wednesday evening. After a promising performance against League One outfit MK Dons in the Emirates FA Cup last Sunday, they were unable to show a similar performance at The Shay in midweek. Despite the defeat, there was a first goal for Inih Effiong, who scored on what was his very first appearance as part of his one-month loan deal. It is clear the Bees have to be more ruthless in box boxes, they found some good opening against FC Halifax Town but didn't have the finishing touch in front of goal. Beadle's side should be able to find openings against a leaky Wealdstone defence but have to defend better themselves, as they did in our last home league match with Hartlepool United. 

The Bees will be keen to put things right, as they welcome fans back to the Hive for the first time this season, with the extra motivation of the occasion being a London derby.

Match Reports

Match Pack: Barnet FC 0-0 Wealdstone

5 December 2020

The Bees had their chances at The Hive London, but had to settle for a point on our first game with the Bee Army in attendance.

The Bees started brightly once again but the first clear opening of the match fell the way of the visitors, as Dean Parrett forced Scott Loach into a brilliant stop, as he tipped away the Stones mans effort from six yards out. 

Up the other end, Inih Effiong almost opened the scoring as he headed an effort just over the crossbar from Anthony Wordsworth's corner. Just before that Ben Nugent headed another corner to the back post but the Stones just managed to scramble behind. 

It was Effiong who caused problems again moments later after he saw an effort blocked behind for a corner after being found by Alex McQueen. The resulting corner found Nugent who headed over from eight yards out after managing to lose his man.

Loach was called into action again, as a break down the right fell to the back post for a Stones attacker, but Loach was off his line quickly to narrow the angle and make a stop at his near post. 

There was controversy on the stroke of half-time as McQueen looked to have slammed home into an empty net after an almighty scramble in the six-yard box, the Stones 'keeper went down with a suspected head injury which the referee initially waved away. But as the ball hit the back of the net, the ref pointed for a free-kick. 

The teams went into the break level and at the start of the second half, Muhammadu Faal had the best chance of the opening of the early exchanges as he saw an effort deflected behind. 

The Bees best chance of the match fell the way of Effiong as his diving header from six yards out, went over the crossbar after he had peeled away to find the space to meet McQueen's inch-perfect cross. 

Up the other end, Loach had to make a vital stop to tip Jordan Slew's effort around the post, following his 20-yard strike destined for the bottom corner. 

Both sides showed plenty of endeavour in the final stages but neither could find that all-important opener, leaving both sides having to settle for a share of the spoils.

It was a shame for the Bees fans, who got right behind their side all afternoon. It was just great to have fans back in the stadium again, Beadle's side showed promise but the just need to break their duck in front of goal.

MATCH REACTION:
