Barnet 0-2 Maidstone United

Maidstone ended a dismal run of five matches without a win with a fully-deserved victory at Barnet.

The Stones unexpectedly hit the front just short of the half-hour when Blair Turgott took a through pass from Jake Cassidy and slotted coolly under Mark Cousins.

Elliott Romain and Turgott threatened further goals, and only Cousins' alert saves at full-stretch kept the Bees in the game past the interval.

In the second half, Cousins saved Jack Paxman's low effort as Harry Wheeler's men continued to dominate.

The away side secured the win in the last 10 minutes when Cousins made his umpteenth save low from Cassidy, but substitute Gold Omotayo was on hand to tap in.
