Barking were made to pay for a bad start as they fell to Bostik North defeat at Mayesbrook Park.

The Blues were unbeaten in their previous three league matches, but had brought kick-off forward to 2pm due to a slight issue with the floodlights.

And they found themselves behind after only eight minutes as Josh Kerridge opened the scoring for the visitors.

Jack Ainsley doubled the advantage just four minutes later and it was 3-0 before the half-hour mark as Miles Powell beat home keeper Tim Brown.

Barking boss Justin Gardner made a double substitution on 36 minutes, sending on Abs Seymour and Joshua Davison for Jack Edwards and Jordan Peart.

And the hosts hit back moments later through Daniel Cheema to raise hopes for the second half.

They cut the gap to one with three minutes remaining when Joe Bruce converted from the penalty spot, but the visitors secured the points in the final minute of normal time when Joseph Francis claimed their fourth goal of the afternoon.

Defeat left Blues in 13th place, with a trip to third-placed Coggeshhall Town up next on November 10.

Barking: Brown, Tarbard, Peart (Davison 36), O’Brien, Bruce, Cosson, Edwards (Seymour 36), Da Silva (Kamara 64), Russell, Cheema, Ogunwamide. Unused subs: Abiola, Cohen.
