Barking rescued a point as they fought back from finding themselves 3-0 down with half an hour to go as they managed to grab a point as they pulled the score line back to 3-3. Hussain Jaffa and Abs Seymour headed the ball home to put the pressure on Brentwood before Kiernan Hughes-Mason prodded home to grab an unlikely point.Barking had the first chance as Martin Tuohy found himself with a chance on goal but the ball bobbled as he attempted to take a shot and the ball didn’t find the target. Brentwood took the lead after 13 minutes as the Blues failed to clear their lines and a through ball found Matt Price who slotted home. Barking came close to an equaliser 5 minutes later as Akwasi Marfo’s cross was headed across goal by Martin Tuohy and Kiernan Hughes-Mason just failed to make contact to direct the ball towards goal. It looked like it would be 1-0 to Brentwood at half time but a Brentwood free-kick was cleared to Matt Hall and his swerving cross evaded everyone including Ollie Bowles to find the right corner of the net to double their lead.

It went from bad to worse for Barking after 58 minutes as Ricky Tarbard and Toib Adeyemi did their best to break up a dangerous Brentwood counter attack but the ball fell to Izzy Bademosi who drove the ball into the net to give Brentwood a three goal advantage. The advantage only lasted three minutes as Abs Seymour lifted a ball into the box from the right wing and at the far post it found Hussain Jaffa who nodded the ball back across the goalkeeper and into the net. Ben O’Brien had a chance after 66 minutes to halve the deficit but his header from an Alan Taylor cross was off target. Barking continued to press and got their second after 83 minutes as a long throw led to some head tennis before Abs Seymour nodded the ball home with the aid of a deflection. Barking were left scratching their heads as how they didn’t equalise after 89 minutes as Dan Gilchrist’s shot from the edge of the box was spilled by the Brentwood goalkeeper in to the feet of Hughes-Mason yards from an open goal but he couldn’t get the ball out of his feet and the defender was able to clear.

It seemed like that would be that but another Ricky Tarbard long throw caused issues as Brentwood struggled to clear. Martin Tuohy attempted to shoot but the ball took a wicked deflection landing at the feet of Kiernan Hughes-Mason who prodded home to secure a point in the fourth minute of stoppage time.
