Barnet striker John O’Flynn is fast becoming the new Giuliano Grazioli.

Manager Paul Fairclough has already likened the new signing to Grazioli in his prime.

He called O’Flynn a typical goal poacher, a claim backed up on Saturday.

The Irishman was largely anonymous but, when presented with a chance, he made no mistake, heading home Nicky Deverdics’ cross for Barnet’s second goal.

O’Flynn has made just nine starts this season, but already has six goals to his name. Five of those strikes have come in seven league games.

O’Flynn is now top scorer, with Albert Adomah on five goals.

Though six strikes is hardly going to win O’Flynn the Golden Boot, his goal return per game is outstanding, particularly because he is also playing for a side struggling at the wrong end of the table.

It appears O’Flynn has become the number one striker at Underhill, with Adam Birchall, Cliff Akurang, Luke Medley and Elliott Charles all battling to play alongside him.

Grazioli, now playing for Andy Hessenthaler at Dover Athletic, was one of the most popular strikers in Barnet’s history, his goals firing the Bees back into the Football League four years ago.
