Bees pile pain on Buckle

In-form Barnet frontman Izale McLeod helped heap more pressure on under-fire Bristol Rovers boss Paul Buckle by notching his 19th of the season to seal a 2-0 win.

McLeod - the only player to score for the Bees since their November 19 clash with Rovers - popped up in the 69th minute to open the scoring.

Clovis Kamdjo's late strike settled the game to earn Barnet their first win in seven games and leave Buckle's future in further doubt.

After Barnet duo Ricky Holmes and McLeod put half-chances wide in the early stages visiting defender Cian Bolger was inches away from converting a Mustapha Carayol corner.

Rovers defender Lee Sawyer brought a good save from Dean Brill in the 44th minute and moments later new arrival Aaron Downes headed over a Carayol corner with the home keeper floundering.

But the first-half promise from the visitors turned to despair after the break. First McLeod out-paced the Rovers backline to latch onto Michael Hector's long clearance and lob Michael Poke.

The result was put beyond doubt when Kamdjo - teed up expertly by Holmes - side-footed home the second.
