Barnet recovered from two goals down to beat Dorking 3-2 and keep up the pressure on Vanarama National League leaders Chesterfield.

Josh Taylor and Jason Prior put Dorking in charge at Meadowbank, but second-half goals from Nicke Kabamba, Anthony Hartigan and Danny Collinge earned Barnet a comeback win that keeps them three points behind Chesterfield.

Dorking took a fifth-minute lead when a long ball forward was allowed to bounce through to the edge of Barnet box, where Taylor pounced to drill past Laurie Walker.

The hosts doubled their lead in the 22nd minute when Tom Blair’s cross picked out Prior and the veteran striker headed home his seventh of the season.

With the points slipping away, Barnet came out after the break with all guns blazing and Kabamba reduced the deficit when he got in front of his marker to flick in his 11th goal of the campaign.

Barnet substitute Callum Stead hit the outside of a post, but the visitors would not be denied and drew level in the 67th minute when Anthony Hartigan curled a brilliant free-kick into the near top corner.

The Bees were not finished there either, and took the lead – and the points – four minutes later when Collinge fired into the roof of the net for the centre-back’s sixth goal this season.
