Guiliano Grazioli kept up his scoring streak as Conference leaders Barnet saw off Tamworth, but ended an ill-tempered game with ten men.
Grazioli kept up his superb scoring record
Dean Sinclair gave the Bees an early lead with a fine right-footed effort and Grazioli doubled the lead on the stroke of half-time.
It was Grazioli's 31st goal in 44 league starts for Barnet.
But Dwane Lee was dismissed two minutes from time to ensure that the afternoon ended on a sour note for Barnet.
