9 October 2020

The Bees travel to Meadow Lane looking to build on Tuesday night's victory over Dagenham and Redbridge, however Beadle's side face a tough test against one of the promotion favourites.

Fixture Details:

Notts County vs Barnet FC

Saturday 10th October, 15:00

Meadow Lane

Vanarama National League - Matchday 3

THE MAGPIES:

Form: LW

Last Match: Notts County 3-1 Altrincham 

Manager: Neal Ardley 

Club Captain: Michael Doyle

This weekend's hosts recovered from opening day defeat to Dover Athletic with a home victory over Altrincham on Wednesday evening. Last season's beaten play-off finalists will be hoping to go one step better this time around and return to the Football League at the second time of asking. The Bees will have to be wary of Notts striker Kyle Wooton who struck two goals in their victory on Wednesday and will be hoping to be the man who leads the Pies to promotion. Elsewhere they have further threats in attack through Cal Roberts and Enzio Boldewijn, whilst the experienced heads of Michael Doyle and Jim O'Brien steady the ship in the middle of the park. 

Neal Ardley's side will be feeling the expectation of getting themselves back into the Football League in their second season in the National League. The Pies have once again invested heavily over the summer with nine new faces coming through the door, including Portuguese attacking midfielder Ruben Rodrigues. However, this weekend's opponents have also had 17 players leave giving the Pies a more compact squad. 

After getting past the Bees in last season's play-off semi-final, Ardley's side lost out to Harrogate Town in the Wembley final. The now League Two side became the Pies kryptonite again in the FA Trophy as they edged out Notts 1-0 in the semi final that was played just a few weeks ago. After a rocky opening day, this weekend's opponents will want to try and build momentum in this crucial early part of the season. 

THE BEES: 

Beadle's side will have their tails up following Tuesday night's dramatic comeback victory over Dagenham and Redbridge. Late goals from JJ Hooper and Eliot Richards cancelled out Angelo Balanta's first-half opener for the Daggers. The victory Tuesday evening will come as a mental boost for the Bees players after they showed a response following our humbling at home to Eastleigh on the opening day of the season.

 

The boys have looked bright in training this week and for some of the lads, they will want to seek revenge for last season's playoff defeat at Meadow Lane. The Bees could be boosted with the return of Josh Walker to the matchday squad after he missed the opening two matches with an injury. However, the boss confirmed that Michael Petrasso will not be available for the Bees until at least Tuesday's match with Weymouth following his arrival from Canada this week.

Match Reports

Match Pack: Notts County 4-2 Barnet FC

10 October 2020

HOW IT HAPPENED

The Magpies came close after just three minutes when Kyle Wootton took a diagonal pass down on his chest, before firing his right footed shot off the woodwork.  

The hosts did take the lead in the 14th minute when Cal Roberts found time and space on the edge of the Bees’ box and curled a left footed effort into the top corner of Scott Loach’s net. 

And Roberts turned provider moments later for the home side by firing in a cross for Kyle Wootton, who stabbed the ball home at the second time of asking. 

It went from bad to worse for Barnet just shy of the 22 minute mark, Enzio Boldewijn this time finding the back of the net with a low drive from the edge of the box, after another assist from Roberts.  

And it could've been four just after the half hour as Roberts found space to cross for Wootton, only for the latter to blaze his shot comfortably over the bar. 

JJ Hooper put the Bees on the board in the final minute of the first half. The big number 11 found a yard inside the Magpies’ box and drilled his effort low into the bottom corner.

The Bees were buoyed by that late first half goal and started the second half the brighter of the two sides. Ephron Mason-Clark let fly with the first meaningful effort of the second half, seeing his dipping effort fly just wide of the County goal. 

The first chance of the second half for Notts didn’t come until the 67th minute, when Wes Thomas found himself on the end of a left wing cross, but powered his header wide of the mark. 

The Bees gave themselves a chance of a big comeback in the 75th minute. Good work from Mason-Clark released Josh Walker down the left wing and his cross-come-shot was parried into the path of Hooper, who tapped into the empty net. 

The hosts had the chance to put the result beyond doubt with 80 minutes played as a free kick found Connell Rawlinson at the far post, but his acrobatic header only found the side netting for Neal Ardley’s side. 

Peter Beadle sent Alfie Pavey on with ten minutes to play in a bid to find a dramatic late leveler, but Michael Doyle’s first time effort from the center of the box sealed the three points for the home side in the second minute of stoppage time.  

Barnet: Loach, Duffus, Preston, Dunne (C), McQueen, Hooper, Taylor (Walker, 70'), Fonguck (Pavey, 81'), Binnom-Williams, Mason-Clark, Nugent

Subs: Azaze, Pascal, Pavey, Walker, Vasiliou
