Barnet 5-0 Welling United

John Akinde
Barnet are aiming to make an immediate return to the Football League after being relegated from League Two last season

John Akinde scored twice as Barnet beat 10-man Welling United to return to the top of the Conference.

Mauro Vilhete's superb solo effort put the Bees ahead before Akinde netted his first after a flick from Michael Gash.

Welling defender Chris Bush was sent off following his challenge in the penalty area on Gash, with Akinde converting the resulting spot-kick.

Gash volleyed in a fourth goal for Barnet and a deflected strike from Luisma completed an easy victory.
