Barnet enjoyed their first National League victory in 13 games with a 3-1 win over Aldershot, which they then followed up with another solid performance in a 0-0 draw with Boreham Wood.

JJ Hooper gave the home side the lead at the Hive in the win over Shots, heading home in the 30th minute.

Aldershot responded quickly, however, with Harry Panayiotou connecting with a Toby Edser corner to produce an equaliser after 37 minutes.

The referee then awarded Barnet a penalty after Ephron Mason-Clark was brought down in the area, and the forward stepped up to slot the ball into the bottom right hand corner.

Tomi Adeloye topped the triumph with a late goal in the fourth minute of injury time.

Things were much cagier on Tuesday night as Boreham Wood’s National League play-off hopes suffered another blow as the Bees held them to a goalless draw.

Striker Matt Rhead had Wood’s best opportunity 15 minutes from time but his six-yard effort from a corner was directed off target.

Barnet, who are now unbeaten in three matches, had a great chance themselves on the half-hour, with Tomi Adeloye being denied by a fine save from Wood goalkeeper Nathan Ashmore.

In the early stages, Wood striker Kabongo Tshimanga fired straight at Barnet keeper Aymen Azaze who also foiled Corey Whitely.

Wood remain six points adrift of a top-seven place after a run of just one win in 14 games.

Manager Simon Bassey said he thought his side created the better chances against Boreham Wood.

“They’re all hard fought points in this league and certainly tonight was a difficult test for us,” he told the Barnet website.

“It was a different kind of test, a different shape to what we’ve played against before previously so that caused us some different problems.

“We came through it, we’ve worked hard and we’ve got a good point out of it.

“We defended well and in the first half I think we had the better chances. It wasn’t a game of loads of chances.

“I’ve said to them after the game they will play poorly in at least ten games a season, but it’s what they do when they play poorly.”
