Eastleigh 1-2 Barnet

John Akinde

Barnet returned to the top of the Conference with an impressive win at promotion rivals Eastleigh.

Curtis Weston fired in after a cross was cleared to him and the Bees went 2-0 up when Elliot Johnson set up John Akinde.

Eastleigh earned a late penalty after Sam Muggleton brought down Jai Reason and Ben Strevens converted the kick.

But the hosts could not find a leveller as Barnet leap-frogged Bristol Rovers at the top on goal difference.
