The Glovers had a chance to break the deadlock inside 11 minutes when Francois Zoko’s cross found Wes Fodgen. The midfielder laid it off for Matt Dolan to strike but his shot was well saved by Ian Lawlor in the Barnet goal.

On fifteen minutes, Barnet had a great chance to open the scoring. John Akinde’s flick set Aaron McLean through on goal – his shot beat Chris Weale but was brilliantly cleared off the line by Connor Roberts.

McLean may have been ruing his missed opportunity but he did not show it. Three minutes later the striker was brought down on the edge of the box, and dusted himself down to fire a powerful free-kick into the top right hand corner.

On the stroke of half-time, Barnet doubled their lead and it was that man McLean again.

The Yeovil defence parted and allowed McLean to run through unopposed. He finished in style past the helpless Weale to send Barnet into the break with a two-goal cushion.

On 79 minutes, Zoko had a chance to reduce the deficit but his shot was blocked by the legs of Lawlor. Just a minute later, the forward did get himself on the scoresheet by heading home a Roberts cross.

With four minutes remaining, Yeovil equalised through a stunning goal. Zoko turned just inside the area and fired a shot into the left hand top corner, leaving Bees goalkeeper Lawlor with no chance.

The home side were now firing on all cylinders and Iffy Allen nearly clinched a late winner but his curling effort was parried by Lawlor.

Both teams had to settle for a point in an entertaining 2-2 draw. The result lifts Yeovil off the bottom of the table and leaves them one point from safety. Barnet stay 19th.
