McLeod: Can't stop scoring

McLeod: Can't stop scoring

Izale McLeod's 13th goal of the season put Barnet on course for a 2-0 victory at Bristol Rovers, to pile further pressure on boss Paul Buckle.

The striker headed the visitors in front from close range on 19 minutes after Mark Hughes had got the first touch to a Mark Byrne corner.

Byrne curled home the second goal with the last kick of the match after latching onto a poor clearance, leaving Rovers fans to vent their fury against Buckle at the final whistle.

Goalkeeper Dean Brill had protected Barnet's lead in the dying minutes with brilliant saves from Elliot Richards and defender Michael Hector, who almost sliced into his own net.

And Rovers' misery was compounded by what looked a serious injury to substitute Scott McGleish. The veteran striker was stretchered off on 82 minutes. Matt Harrold headed against a post for Rovers from Matt Gill's 14th-minute corner and Gill was just off target with a 41st-minute shot.

But the home side struggled to test Brill in a first half which saw the visitors play intelligently on the break, with McLeod always a threat. Frustration grew among home supporters as, despite seven minutes of stoppage time, their team could not force an equaliser before Barnet's late second.
