Barnet conceded twice in the last 15 minutes to lose 2-1 at home to Stockport County on Saturday, dropping to 15th in the National League as a result.

Ephron Mason-Clarke put the Bees 1-0 up in the 70th minute, but Elliot Osborne levelled five minutes later and Frank Mulhern struck the winner at the death.

Defeat was Barnet’s third in four games as their inconsistent form continued under Darren Currie.

The hosts had numerous chances to take the lead throughout the game but were left frustrated by County keeper Ben Hinchcliffe, who twice denied Josh Walker in the first half.

Currie’s side then took the lead with 20 minutes remaining as Mason-Clarke, restored to the line-up after success over Chorley last week, fired into the far corner.

However, within five minutes, the game was all square again when Osborne got on the end of Sam Minihan’s cross to divert past Scott Loach.

The Bees would have taken a point considering how closely-fought the game had been, but they were left with nothing late on when Mulhern bundled over the line from Ben Jackson’s corner in the dying seconds.

With no game in midweek, Barnet have a good period to rest and recover ahead of a long trip next Saturday up to Barrow. Kick off is at 3pm.
