Welling United 1-2 Barnet

Martin Allen
Martin Allen's Barnet side remain top of the Conference and have now won three games in a row

A last-minute winner from John Akinde gave leaders Barnet victory at Welling.

The striker had given his side a first-half lead, firing in right-footed from close range, and almost added a second shortly afterwards but headed over.

Joe Healy drew the hosts level just before the break with his first goal of the season, pouncing on a fumbled free-kick from Barnet's Graham Stack.

As the final whistle approached, Charlie MacDonald headed down for Akinde, who snatched all three points.

The result leaves Barnet with a nine-point lead at the top of the Conference table.
