Barnet’s unbeaten run in the National League came to an abrupt end courtesy of a 4-2 defeat at FC Halifax Town on Saturday.

A sparkling nine minute period in the first half saw four goals shared between the sides, with Simeon Akinola and Charlee Adams pulling the Bees level after they had gone two goals down through Tobi Sho-Silva and Liam McAlinden.

Liam Nolan then edged Halifax in front with 19 minutes to go before Sho-Silva notched his second in stoppage time to seal defeat for the Bees.

Halifax controversially took the lead after 11 minutes when, despite Barnet’s claims of an offside in the build-up, Sho-Silva tapped home, and it got worse just five minutes later when McAlinden broke into the area and hammered past Scott Loach.

Barnet hit straight back and halved the deficit within a minute of the restart as Akinola cut inside and brilliantly curled into the top corner.

And, just minutes later, the game was all square again as the ball fell for Adams on the edge of the area, and his snapshot went in off the post.

Although Halifax spent the rest of the second half rocked by Barnet’s comeback, they regrouped at the break and eventually their pressure told when Nolan turned Callum Reynolds in the area and prodded past Loach.

The hosts then wrapped up the game in stoppage time with Barnet chasing the game as Sho-Silva powered an effort into the net.

Barnet will look to get their winning ways back on track tomorrow night when they travel to bottom side Ebbsfleet United, kicking off at 7.45 pm.
