Yeovil just about saw off Barnet in the first round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy last night thanks to a 1-0 win at Huish Park.

However, there were no tantrums in the away dressing room after the game, with Barnet going out of their way to leave the facilities in the exact same spotless condition they found them in.

It always used to be one of English football's more idiosyncratic, an underground train on the Northern Line, emerging from the darkness and speeding through the identikit suburbia of North London to High Barnet. Once alighted from the train, you are thrust into a world of curious angles. The steep hill into the town centre to one side, and the curiously vertiginous sloping pitch of Underhill straight ahead.

Relegation From the Football League is Not the End of the World

[T]his year's League Two relegation battle is quite remarkable. Not just for the closeness of thefight, but for the teams involved.

A Brief Introduction to the League Two Relegation Candidates

[W]ith ten games or less remaining for virtually every Football League side, most supporters have a pretty good idea of what the next few months holds in store for their team: a promotion push; mid-table obscurity; or a fight against relegation. Honing in on the bottom of League Two, a small but significant five point gap has opened up between Bristol Rovers and Barnet in positions 17 and 18 respectively, leaving seven teams adrift and in danger of playing non-league football next season.
