Spanish midfielder Luisma Villa Lopez netted either side of Braintree captain Sean Marks' red card

Luisma Villa Lopez scored twice as Barnet beat 10-man Braintree Town to move eight points clear at the top of the Conference table.

The Spaniard opened the scoring with a curling effort, before Braintree captain Sean Marks was given a straight red card for an elbow on Bondz N'Gala.

After being teed up by defender David Stephens, Luisma doubled Barnet's lead with his seventh goal of the season.

Luke Gambin added a third after the break, converting Adam Mekki's cross.
