Match Pack: Bees 1-4 Glovers

2 March 2021

The Bees slipped to a heavy defeat at the hands of Yeovil Town after playing a large amount of the match with ten players.

The Glovers had the first chance of the evening, as Albi Skendi picked up on a loose ball before having a low drive tipped away by Scott Loach. 

After some more Glovers pressure, they took the lead just after ten minutes, as the Bees failed to clear their lines and Jimmy Smith fired into the back of the net. 

It was soon two and it was another set piece for the Glovers that undone the Bees, as a corner was headed home from six yards out by Billy Sass-Davies. 

But it only took a minute for us to find our way back into the contest, as JJ Hooper scored a spectacular volley to halve the deficit following a great delivery from Michael Petrasso. 

The game had a very controversial incident on 35 minutes, as the already booked Tomi Adeloye was shown a second yellow for allegedly illegally blocking a free-kick on the halfway line. 

The red card ultimately took the sting out of the game and the Glovers were side with the advantage at the break. 

Darren Sarll's side started the second half on the front foot and forced Loach into two early stops, as first smith stung the knees of Loach as he danced into the penalty area. Then Tom Knowles had a strike from the edge of the area beaten away by the Bees number one. 

Eventually, the Glovers pressure told, as Rhys Murphy touched home from yet another Yeovil set-piece, despite the best efforts of Loach. 

The Bees never really managed to come close to carving a route back into the match, as our visitors were tidy in possession and patient in their build-up. That composure was soon rewarded, as Josh Neufville found the space to curl home into the top corner from 22 yards. 

Barnet: Loach, Dunne (Kefalas 45'), McQueen, Petrasso (Mason-Clark 79'), Hooper (Faal 68'), H Taylor, Richards-Everton, Adeloye, Judd, R.Taylor, Daly. 

Subs not used: Azaze, McBurnie.
