Bees fly to the top

Published Add your comment

Second-half goals from Ahmed Deen, veteran striker Paul Furlong and substitute John O'Flynn took Barnet to the top of the League Two table following their fourth straight success in a 3-1 win at Northampton.

Against the run of play Ben Marshall gave Northampton the lead after half an hour but the Bees' dominance eventually told.

Three second-half strikes saw Rochdale bounce back from a nightmare first half to rob Morecambe of their first win of the season in a thrilling 3-3 draw.

Sammy McIlroy's strugglers were superb in the first half and a Phil Jevons brace along with an Ian Craney strike gave the Shrimps three goals in nine minutes and a seemingly unassailable lead.

But then Keith Hill's side picked themselves up and dominated the second 45 minutes with goals from Chris Dagnall, Joe Thompson and Dale Stephens.
