Town Sunk By Barnet

By: Leon Harding
Date: 27/09/2008

BARNET got their first ever win against a "new look" Town today on a warm, sunny autumn afternoon in Cleethorpes. The teams came out onto the pitch as a Dakota and a Lancaster Bomber circled in the skies.

Town were wearing their red change strip due to Barnet’s home and away kits clashing with Town’s home colours.

Town lined up in a 4-4-2 for the first time in what seems like years. New boys Tomi Ameobi and Malvin Kamara were straight into the side up front and on the right of midfield respectively and Ipswich loanee Liam Trotter made his home debut.

Town had the better of the early exchanges, and in the third minute a ball came in for Ameobi to touch down for Llewellyn whose shot was well over the bar. Town’s next chance came in the 22nd minute as a free kick was won on the edge of the area. Tom Newey rocketed a shot in which was deflected out for a corner.

Barnet’s first chance came from a corner that was played short to Carew who whipped a ball into the six yard box, only for Adomah to head just wide.

Not long after Barnet took the lead from some sloppy Town defending. Adomah again broke in the box to cross for Neal Bishop who slotted past an outstretched Phil Barnes.

Half Time Verdict

"Different name, same rubbish." A man at the back of the Pontoon shouted. I doubt many would disagree.

The second half began with no changes made by either side and it was Town with the first chance of the half when Robbie Stockdale was brought down. The resulting free kick was disappointing, but Till managed to win a corner from the head tennis which followed.

The corner was taken and after going back to James Hunt, the ball was given to Trotter who juggled through two Barnet defenders to squeeze a shot in which was hit over the bar for a goal kick.

A change was made in the form of Danny North and Nathan Jarman coming on for Llewellyn and Ameobi, who made some good touches but had little to do on his debut.

Barnet had a half chance not long after the change when Akurang beat Matt Heywood to the ball and managed to get into the box. Heywood brought him down but the referee quite rightly waved play on.

After Simon Heslop had replaced James Hunt, Barnet had a good chance to make it 2 - 0 when they won a corner. The ball came in and Yakubu’s header was just over.

Malvin Kamara had two chances to rescue the game for Town in the latter stages. First he went close with a header from a free kick that was crossed in by Stockdale and then spotted the 'keeper off his line, only for his shot to be comfortably saved.

It was a game of few chances for either side with Barnet managing to convert their only clear cut chance. Malvin Kamara wins my man of the match award with some good balls played about and having the only shot on target for Town.
