Barking extended their unbeaten run to 11 league matches after fighting back from three goals down to earn a point on Tuesday.

After five successive clean sheets, it would take a special goal to break Barking’s run of clean sheets and with 17 minutes played a well-worked move split the home defence wide open with three, short intricate passes between Matthew Hall, Matt Price and Jack Gardner before Price slotted ball into the back of the net.

Brentwood doubled their lead just before half time when a lofted cross by Hall was misjudged by JJ Da Cruz who let the ball bounce in the box over an unsuspecting Ollie Bowles and into the back of the net.

The visitors clearly had every intention of crashing the party following the news of Justin Gardner’s first manager of the month award and the half-time whistle couldn’t come soon enough for Blues.

Izzy Bademosi came on and got Brentwood’s third goal, apitalising on an error from another mishap in the home defence which allowed him to drive into the box and slot his shot home with half an hour left to play.

But Barking finally sprung to life three minutes later and showed great character to come from behind.

Their first goal came from Hussain Jaffa, who produced an inspired run into the six-yard box to meet an Abs Seymour free-kick and power a header past Anthony Page.

The Blues cut the deficit to one goal when Ricky Tarbard’s long throw-in was punched out by Page only as far as Barking skipper Seymour who steered his header through the crowded penalty area and into the bottom corner.

And the hosts snatched a last-gasp point in the fourth minute of injury time after another Tarbard throw-in was helped on by Jaffa and Billy Jones teed up Martin Tuohy, whose ferocious low shot was parried into the path of Kiernan Hughes-Mason and he reacted quickest to finish from close range.

Barking are set to host Maldon & Tiptree on Saturday.

Barking: Bowles, Tarbard, Abiola, O’Brien (Jones 83), Jaffa, Da Cruz (Gilchrist 62), Marfo (Reed 46), Seymour, Tuohy, Hughes-Mason, Taylor. Unused subs: Shaban, Levett.

Attendance: 81.
