Barnet 0-0 Cambridge United

Barnet hit the woodwork twice but had to settle for a goalless draw against Cambridge United at The Hive.

The visitors had an early penalty appeal turned down after Bira Dembele headed onto his arm.

Curtis Weston hit the bar after Michael Gash's header was cleared off the line and Bira Dembele's header rattled the crossbar before half-time.

Gash had another effort scrambled off the line as the Bees were unable to find a winner late on.

Barnet manager Martin Allen speaks told BBC London 94.9:

Allen on Barnet v Cambridge

"I'm very pleased. It's another point on the board and a good performance, especially after last week.

"I see it as a point gained and Jamie Stephens didn't have a lot to do.

"I don't think we've got the right amount of points that perhaps you'd expect, with the good performances we've had. We haven't got the points that we deserve."
