Fairclough: Under pressure

Fairclough: Under pressure

The pressure is mounting on Barnet boss Paul Fairclough after two Macclesfield goals in the last five minutes sunk the Bees 3-1.

John O'Flynn hit the bar early on, but Macclesfield should have led when Martin Gritton was sent racing clear by Simon Yeo, only to slice his shot wide.

Gritton opened the scoring with a bicycle kick to give Barnet keeper Lee Harrison no chance in the 15th minute.

O'Flynn levelled the scores when he slid home substitute Luke Medley's deflected cross after 59 minutes.

But Barnet hearts were broken when Macclesfield substitute Francis Green fired home with five minutes remaining.

And Nat Brown rubbed salt in the wound with a headed third late on to condemn Barnet to their sixth home defeat in nine matches.
