Having lost their first four matches of the new season, before beating previously unbeaten Romford and Balham, the Blues maintained their momentum thanks to two first-half goals.

There were 24 minutes on the clock when a high ball into the box was controlled by Darelle Russell, who then shot past Blake Horton in the home goal.

And Justin Gardner’s men doubled their lead just before the break when Rashid Kamara advanced on goal and showed composure to slot past Horton into the corner of the net.

The home side hit back in the second half from the penalty spot, as Tom Boxer’s effort beat the dive of Emmanuel Olajide on 61 minutes.

But Barking protected their lead in the time remaining, with Billy Reynolds, Brendan Ocran and Larry Akabni all making appearance off the bench, to bank all three points and will welcome Brentwood Town to Mayesbrook Park for a Velocity Trophhy first round tie on Tuesday.

Barking: Olajide, Tarbard, Peart, Ogunwamide (Akanbi 84), Cohen, Cosson, Kamara (Ocran 74), Seymour, Russell, Cheema, Obafemi (Reynolds 65). Unused sub: McQueen.

Attendance: 145.
