Barking had their six game winning run brought to an end as they suffered a narrow 2-1 loss to Chalfont St Peter.
The Blues opened the scoring through striker Michael Dixon but it only ended up being a consolation goal as both Hani Berchiche and Ricky Brennan found the net to seal the three points for the hosts at Mill Meadow.
Both sides had a few chances in the early proceedings before winger Johnny Ashman played right-back Ricky Tarbard in at the edge of the box.
The youngster was brought down as he looked to turn and shoot so Barking were awarded a penalty.
