Barnet produced an impressive 2-1 away win at high-flying Bromley to move up to 13th in the National League on Saturday.

Josh Walker and Simeon Akinola scored either side of Josh Rees’ leveller for the hosts to keep up the Bees’ current unbeaten run.

Bromley made the better start to the game but were denied by two excellent early saves from Scott Loach, who tipped aside efforts from Rees and Luke Coulson.

After the early onslaught though, the Bees found their feet and almost went ahead through Cheye Alexander’s drive, but he was kept out by Ryan Huddart.

Six minutes later though, Barnet did find the advantage when Walker picked up the ball 30 yards from goal, worked his way into the box and kept his cool to slot past Huddart.

Bromley immediately set about grabbing an equaliser and they did so on the cusp of half time when the ball fell for Rees inside the Barnet box and he fired past Loach into the far corner.

The home side almost completed the turnaround two minutes after the restart, but Joe Kizzi wasted a glorious opportunity by shooting wide after a scramble in the box.

They were then made to pay for their wastefulness as Akinola latched onto Dan Sweeney’s cross, got ahead of his man and finished into the top corner to restore Barnet’s lead and grab his 14th goal of the season.

Rees came close to levelling things again for Bromley but his volley went narrowly wide, and Loach also did well on two occasions to deny Ben Williamson.

The result pushes Barnet ahead of Torquay United into 13th in the table, while Bromley stay fourth.

Next up for the Bees is their rearranged FA Trophy replay against Farsley Celtic, which takes place tomorrow at 7.45pm at The Hive.
