Oxford United 2-3 Barnet

Barnet scored three goals in five minutes to end Oxford United's unbeaten home record.

The U's took the lead through Liam Sercombe after Barnet failed to clear a corner but the equaliser came when Curtis Weston scored with a low shot.

The Bees went ahead through John Akinde's close-range finish and Josh Clarke added a third just after the half hour with another low strike.

Sercombe pulled one back before Kemar Roofe spurned a chance to equalise.

Barnet manager Martin Allen told BBC Radio London:

Allen on Oxford v Barnet

"It was a very good performance from start to finish we looked dangerous.

"We put a plan together and we tried to play a bit on the counter-attack. We played extremely well and deserved to win.

"I just thought it was the right time to come here today and play them."
