Lee Molyneux scored a hat-trick as Accrington boosted their survival hopes with victory over Barnet.

Molyneux fired home two long-range strikes before completing his treble from the penalty spot after Chiro N'Toko fouled Francis Jeffers.

Elliott Johnson pulled a goal back before half-time after a goalmouth scramble and Ross Jenkins scored with a spectacular overhead kick.

Bees player manager Edgar Davids was sent off late on for a second booking.

Accrington stay bottom but join five clubs, including Barnet, on 40 points.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Barnet player-manager Edgar Davids told BBC London 94.9:

"When you start sloppy and you are 3-0 down and then come back, it's too little, too late.

"You have to eliminate the errors, and start immediately and not after 50 minutes and commit less errors than the opponents.

On his sending off: "The second one was absolutely not a yellow card because I didn't do anything."
