Blues boss Justin Gardner had claimed during the week that the Bostik South Central visitors would be odds-on favourites for the preliminary round tie, but his Bostik North outfit made them work for their win.

Both sides had half chances during a high-tempo first half, with Barking’s Emmanuel Ighorae flashing a volley wide.

Emmanual Olajide failed to claim a Hayes corner at the other end but was grateful to see one of his defenders scramble the ball away, before the only goal arrived on 31 minutes.

Lewis Toomey beat Olajide to the ball, before teeing up leading scorer Lee Barney for a tap in, and that proved to be enough as both sides struggled with the wind in the second half.

Barking committed more players to attack as they sought an equaliser but the Hayes defence held firm, while the visitors were unable to add to Barney’s goal on counter-attacks.

Blues return to league action with a trip to Sudbury next weekend.

Barking: Olajide, Tarbard, Peart (Ogunwamide 83), O’Brien, Bruce, Cosson, Edwards, Abiola (Akanbi 74), Russell (Kamara 83), Cheema, Ighorae. Unused subs: Stokes, McQueen.

Attendance: 103.
