County cruise past hapless Bees
Hawley gave the Magpies the lead inside five minutes following a well worked set piece, while Davies curled home a free-kick midway through the half. The Bees began the game with a containing 4-5-1 formation but their attempts to frustrate County were immediately undone when a cross from Matt Hamshaw was nodded down by Mike Edwards for Hawley to sweep home. The in-form Davies stepped up to strike a lovely free-kick past Barnet goalkeeper Jake Cole for his third goal in three games. The hosts could easily have added more goals to their tally, with top scorer Lee Hughes ballooning over from close range and Edwards going close with several headers from corners as Davies ran the show. Lowly Barnet looked desperately short of confidence and could only muster one serious chance, substitute John O'Flynn forcing a diving stop from Kasper Schmeichel.
