John Akinde's 26th goal of the season opened the scoring for Barnet

Barnet beat 10-man Altrincham to keep up with leaders Bristol Rovers.

Home defender Tom Marshall was sent off for a foul on John Akinde after only four minutes, and the Bees striker converted the resulting spot kick.

Michael Gash touched in Luisma Villa's free-kick to extend their lead, before Robins midfielder Nicky Clee missed a penalty after a foul on Damian Reeves.

The hosts did make it 2-1 through a Reeves strike, but Gash sealed the win by heading in David Stephens' cross.
