Barnet 0-0 Northampton

28 December 2009 05:43
Ten-man Barnet hung on for a draw against Northampton to end a run of four straight defeats.Bees had the best of the chances in the first half with Peter Gilbert clearing an Ismail Yakubu header off the line.

The visitors looked to have the edge when Barnet midfielder Dean Sinclair was sent off early in the second half for a second bookable offence.

But Adebayo Akinfenwa's late strike was ruled out for a foul on keeper Jake Cole and Barnet held on for a point.



Northampton Town manager Ian Sampson told BBC Radio Northampton:





"It's better than losing four on the trot isn't it - but we're disappointed not to win the game.

"When they went down to ten-men we were camped in their half.

"But we didn't get the break and couldn't put the goal in the back of their net."
