Barnet 0 Plymouth 2

Not much to say about this one really ; it wasn't a great game, in fact there weren't any clear chances for the first hour. Barnet flashed a couple of crosses over but no one could connect, and Plymouth were restricted to the odd long-range effort. Then Norris cut in from the right for the visitors and threw himself over DeVera's challenge. It probably was a penalty but he certainly made the most of it. Aljofree's penalty sneaked in despite Flitney getting both hands on it ; the keeper was clearly upset that he hadn't saved it.

Barnet pushed forward without threatening, and with 5 minutes left 17-year old Scott Sinclair, on loan at Plymouth from Chelsea, showed the one touch of class in the game by slipping Yakubu on the half-way line and beating King in the area before clipping neatly into the far corner, an excellent goal. Up until that point the Barnet centre-halves had been excellent, coping comfortably with Plymouths "ageing" (ie shot) frontmen Hayles and Gallen. Unfortunately, just a little bit of penetration from the wings was enough for Argyle to sneak through.
