Northampton   1 - 3   Barnet

Ahmed Deen, Paul Furlong and John O'Flynn scored second-half goals as Barnet came from behind to beat Northampton and go top of League Two.

Ben Marshall gave the home side the lead against the run of play with a deflected effort on the half-hour mark.

Deen made it 1-1 with a defected free-kick and Furlong gave Barnet the lead with a superb finish after great work from Yannick Bolasie on the left.

O'Flynn intercepted Dean Beckwith's back-pass to wrap up the win.


Northampton Town boss Stuart Gray told BBC Radio Northamptonshire:

"[It was a] very scrappy first half, but we got our noses in front. Then they've got the ball forward, forced errors and probably all three goals were self-inflicted again.

"Once they did equalise, we didn't pass the ball very well. I don't think we put three passes together.

"We kept giving possession away, we were getting the ball forward but it was coming straight back and putting the back four under pressure."

Barnet striker John O'Flynn told BBC London 94.9:

"We had a big scalp during the week beating Millwall so I think we're in a winning mood at the minute and I think we took that into tonight.

Maybe Barnet of last season might have got their heads down when we went one behind but we showed good character and it's a team on the up really."
