Keanu Marsh-Brown's brace helped mark Martin Allen's return as Barnet boss with a win over struggling Hereford.

Marsh-Brown's first-half double came in the space of nine minutes, his first coming direct from a corner, followed by a curler from outside the box.

The Bees were rarely troubled by the visitors who have failed to win any of their last 11 games.

The win halted a run of four straight losses for Barnet, now managed by Allen for the fourth time.

Hereford were also under new management, Peter Beadle taking charge for the first time following the midweek sacking of Martin Foyle.
