Wycombe Wanderers 1-1 Barnet

Paul Hayes
Paul Hayes scored his fifth goal this season to put Wycombe ahead.

Andy Yiadom was on target at Barnet came from behind to earn a draw and dent Wycombe's League Two play-off hopes.

Chairboys keeper Ryan Allsop saved John Akinde's header before Wycombe striker Paul Hayes hammered home from Michael Harriman's deflected header.

But Barnet levelled when a bursting run from Elliot Johnson found Yiadom who fired home from six yards.

The draw leaves Wycombe eighth, two points off a play-off place.

Barnet, meanwhile, are safe in mid-table in 15th.

Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth told BBC Three Counties Radio:

Ainsworth on Wycombe v Barnet

"I got a reaction at half-time because Barnet caused us a few problems in the first half.

"We are still in the hunt with four games to go and I think we need to win three of those games to be in the play-offs. It's a tall order but we have done things like this before.

"We will be giving everything to go into these games to try to win them.

"We had one shot to save in the second half and it goes in. Ryan Allsop has nearly saved it and he's upset he didn't save it, but that's the spirit we've got here."

Barnet manager Martin Allen told BBC Radio London:

"I thought we played very well in the first half. We had several chances to go ahead and I don't think they had any.

"We were more than comfortable from start to finish apart from one long free-kick that bounced into our box.

"We thoroughly deserved to score the equaliser, and overall on the scale of things, I would have said that Barnet deserved to win that game, comfortably."
