Barking fell to a disappointing 2-1 defeat at home to mid-table Hertford Town. Barking took the lead thanks to Kiernan Hughes-Mason before an almost immediate equaliser by George Lutaaya was added to after half time by Charlie Cole.

Barking exerted more pressure in the early stages and recorded their first shot on target after 6 minutes after a long throw was flicked on but Kiernan Hughes-Mason’s acrobatic attempt was straight at the Hertford goalkeeper. Martin Tuohy saw his effort go wide after 15 minutes but Barking took a deserved lead after 20 minutes as Tuohy chased the ball down with the ball falling to Abs Seymour – his cross found Kiernan Hughes-Mason whose initial header was saved but the rebound fell kindly for him to prod home. The lead only lasted three minutes – Hertford maintained the pressure the ball was headed away from goal and a low cross was scrambled home by George Lutaaya. The Blues had two quick half chances to regain the lead but headers from Tuohy and Albert Levett didn’t find the target but the scores were level at half time.

Hertford took only five minutes to take the lead in the second half – a counterattack from a Barking corner left Martin Tuohy in the box with a Hertford attacker who he brought down leaving the referee no choice but to point to the spot. Cole stepped up and saw the initial penalty saved by Emmanuel Olajide but the rebound fell kindly back to him and he lashed the ball home. Billy Jones headed wide from a Seymour free kick three minutes later. Cole found himself through on goal after 61 minutes with a chance to double his tally and Hertford’s lead but his effort was tame and easily collected by Olajide.

In the remaining time Barking failed to create clear cut chances but dangerous deliveries into the box caused a few goalmouth scrambles but each time Hertford managed to clear the ball before a Barking player could prod the ball over the line. Hertford left Mayesbrook Park with all three points – the reward for taking their chances when they arrived.
