Wanderers sting Bees: Match Review

Chris Westwood`s first goal of the season was enough to see high-flying Wycombe scrape past struggling Barnet 1-0 at Underhill.

The journeyman defender headed the only goal in first-half stoppage time as the Chairboys returned to winning ways for the first time in three matches.

Rossi Jarvis made a bad night worse for the Bees in the final minute when he was sent off for a second bookable offence.

The home side began brightly when Clovis Kamdjo's header was smartly knocked onto the bar by goalkeeper Nikki Bull and captain Joe Devera's follow-up header also hit the woodwork. But the Chairboys finally came into the game with Matt Bloomfield firing their first effort over and the breakthrough arrived in first-half injury time when Westwood was left unmarked to head in Bloomfield 's corner from five yards.

The Bees showed plenty of intent after the break and almost equalised after 49minutes when Izale McLeod chased down Stuart Lewis' poor backpass but fired straight at Bull.

Ben Strevens should have made the game safe six minutes from time when he headed Bloomfield's corner onto the bar. And the Bees frustrations boiled over in the dying seconds when Jarvis was sent off after clattering into Westwood.
