Barnet 2-2 Dover Athletic

John Akinde
John Akinde has scored in five successive games for Barnet

Conference leaders Barnet fought back from 2-0 down at half-time to draw at home to Dover as John Akinde netted his 21st league goal of the season.

Tom Murphy reacted quickest to a Graham Stack save to give the visitors the lead, before Sefan Payne doubled the lead with a shot into the top corner.

Curtis Weston finished Charlie MacDonald's cross 20 seconds after the break to pull one back for the hosts.

Akinde then tapped in from a corner on 75 minutes to share the points.

Barnet's lead at the top was cut to seven points by Bristol Rovers, while Dover extended their unbeaten run in all competitions to 15 games.
