Having trailed to John Akinde’s early header, Jake Taylor goal at Barnet was not only a superb strike but a well-timed on for the game and the season as a whole.
Playing less than five miles from Wembley Stadium, City started the game in the relegation zone after 12 games of the season. However, Jake Taylor’s strike got City deservedly on level terms.
And, after goals from Lee Holmes, David Wheeler and Reuben Reid followed in the second half, the Grecians got a morale-boosting victory that lifted them out of the relegation zone at Barnet’s expense. An up-turn in form that winter saw the Grecians march up the table and secure a play-off spot and a trip to north London in May for a match not too far from the Hive in Barnet.
