Second-half goals from Ahmed Deen, veteran striker Paul Furlong and substitute John O'Flynn took the Bees to the summit.[LNB]Against the run of play Ben Marshall gave Northampton the lead on the half hour mark, netting from close range with a deflected effort after the ball ran free in the area.[LNB]Barnet continued to dominate the first half with Yannick Bolasie a constant threat on the left while Albert Adomah created several good chances.[LNB]Deen equalised six minutes after the restart when his 20-yard free-kick dipped over the wall and into the bottom corner past a stranded Chris Dunn.[LNB]Marshall almost restored Northampton's lead on the hour mark but his great turn and shot was kept out by a reflex save from Jake Cole.[LNB]Furlong put Barnet in front in the 68th minute when he finished superbly from 10 yards following a great break on the left by Bolasie.[LNB]O'Flynn increased Barnet's lead three minutes later when he capitalised on a short back-pass from Dean Beckwith to beat Dunn.[LNB]Barnet are now a point clear of second-placed Dagenham having played a game more, while the Cobblers remain 13th in the table.[LNB][LNB]
