Post match analysis of the match against Barnet
Goal-crazy Barnet recorded their highest win of the season, thumping five past a sad Dagenham & Redbridge in this London derby.
A double strike from Bees skipper Ian Hendon with further goals from Ben Strevens, substitute Lee Roach and a classy 20-yard curler from Nick Bailey ensured a miserable afternoon for returning ex-Bees boss John Still.
Still's side were poor all afternoon with hardly any effort of note on Scott Tynan's goal.
With less than two minutes gone, Hendon's neat interplay with Bailey on the right enabled him to muscle his way past a startled Daggers defence, finding the net after a Tony Roberts blunder.
Four minutes later and with Richard Graham causing problems from the left, he sent over a pinpoint cross for the unmarked Strevens to head home.
The Bees could have easily doubled their lead with chances falling to Liam Hatch and Graham before the break.
Dagenham's first real effort came three minutes after the restart, Mark Janney shooting wide after being put through by Chris Moore.
Barnet's onslaught continued on 69 minutes when Hendon's 40-yard pass found Roach, racing in on goal, who made no mistake for 3-0.
Bailey's hard work was rewarded after 73 minutes, when a stunning 20-yard strike gave Roberts no chance.
The Bees' fifth came courtesy of a Hendon penalty, awarded when ex-Barnet man Lee Flynn upended Dean Sinclair.
Underhill was left buzzing with the Bees top of the league and on this performance they'll take some stopping.
