Hartlepool United 1-3 Barnet

Barnet came from behind to inflict a fourth straight National League defeat on Hartlepool United.

Peter Kioso gave Pools the lead after Bees keeper Mark Cousins failed to punch a cross clear.

But Manny Duku powerfully headed in to equalise and then he dispossessed Kioso straight from the kick-off to chip home and complete the turnaround.

Josh Walker capitalised on a slip by Myles Anderson to race clear and make the points safe in injury time.

Hartlepool goalkeeper Scott Loach parried Elliott Johnson's corner off the line and Byron Harrison sent a dinked effort narrowly wide as the north Londoners came close to extending their lead early in the second half.

Jack Taylor cleared off his own line and Liam Noble had a shot blocked behind by Callum Reynolds as Hartlepool attempted to find an equaliser.

Victory moves Barnet up two place to 11th in the table, six points off the play-offs and above Hartlepool on goal difference.
