Aldershot Town 1-3 Barnet

John Akinde
John Akinde has scored six goals in his last four games for Barnet

John Akinde's hat-trick saw Conference leaders Barnet beat Aldershot and took him to 20 league goals this season.

Akinde got onto a long ball and held off two defenders to slot Barnet ahead.

Jordan Roberts headed in Sam Hatton's corner to bring the Shots level just after half-time, but Akinde went straight down the other end and finished well from another direct ball.

And the striker scored his third from the spot after keeper Phil Smith saw red for bringing him down in the box.

Aldershot Town boss Andy Scott told BBC Surrey:

"They took their chances and we didn't and we've come away from the game losing 3-1 and you scratch your head to see how it happened. They have taken advantage of the errors we made and we haven't done the same to them.

"It's about making mistakes and about giving away the first goal in a poor area, but previous to that we moved the ball well. The second goal was criminal because we gave the ball away and we were too deep.

"We don't let people make mistakes, we have to work very hard for our goals and we have to do a lot to create chances."
