Goals from Curtis Weston, Dani Lopez, Iffy Allen and Harry Crawford helped Barnet complete a 4-1 win in a friendly against a Crystal Palace XI at The Hive.

The Bees are not in action this weekend due to Grimsby Town’s involvement in the FA Trophy but the majority of the squad featured in the contest.

Jon Nurse and Luisma Villa both missed early chances before Kwesi Appiah smashed over for the visitors.

Appiah, who netted twice against the Bees while on loan at Cambridge United in November, again came close but it was Barnet who went in front as Weston fired into the top corner.

Aaron Wilbraham almost netted for Palace but was denied by Nick Jupp before Lopez, whose loan at the club ends this weekend, headed a cross from Keiron Cadogan into the net.

Barnet made nine changes at the break and young winger Allen made a quick impact as he netted from close range after good work from fellow substitute George Sykes.

The Eagles grabbed a consolation through Sullay KaiKai but a late goal from Crawford rounded off the win.

Barnet first half XI: Jupp; Yiadom, Saville, Acheampong, Brown; Abdulla, Weston, Villa; Nurse, Cadogan; Lopez.

Barnet second half XI: Trialist; Vilhete, Acheampong, Casabella, Johnson; Byrne, Trialist, Crawford; Allen, Nurse; Sykes.
