David Ball and Tom Barkhuizen were on target as Fleetwood Town came back from behind to beat rock-bottom Barnet.

It was a horrendous start for the Cod Army, behind after just five minutes, Jake Hyde bundling home for the visitors.

But the home side were handed a way back into the game after 24 minutes when Bees keeper Graham Stack upended David Ball earning himself a red card – Ball converting from the spot.

Jamie McGuire nearly gave Fleetwood the lead on the hour mark, his header superbly kept out by substitute keeper Sam Cowler.

With ten minutes to play, Fleetwood did grab a second, Jamie Milligan’s cross from the left channel finding on-loan Blackpool star Barkhuizen whose header squirmed past Cowler to hand Fleetwood Town another three points.
