Isthmian South Central: Chalfont St Peter 2 Barking 1

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.
