Barnet 2-0 Exeter City

Josh Clarke scored one and made another as Barnet stretched their unbeaten run to four games with victory over Exeter.

The home side took the lead when Clarke's cross was headed into his own net by Grecians defender Troy Brown.

Exeter striker Tom Nichols failed to take the chance to equalise after he was put clean through on Barnet keeper Jamie Stephens' goal.

Clarke then ran half the length of the pitch following a cleared Exeter corner before slotting home.

Barnet coach Gary Waddock told BBC Radio London:

"We're just backing up what we've done in the last few weeks with a lot of hard work.

"There have been a few changes here, and obviously with the manager wanting to do that the players have responded to it. It's been really, really positive so we've just got to keep that momentum going.

"Every member of the squad has worked extremely hard over the last few weeks to pick up these results and points."
