Taiwo Atieno

Barnet remain in the League Two relegation battle despite beating play-off-chasing Bradford 2-0 at Underhill.

James Hanson shot wide early on for the Bantams, who play Aston Villa in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final on Tuesday.

Taiwo Atieno tapped in Elliot Johnson's first-half cross to score his first goal since joining the Bees last month.

Nahki Wells missed a great chance to level and the Bees counter-attacked with John Oster adding the second.
