Callum Stead scored in each half as Barnet earned back-to-back National League wins to move up to second in the table thanks to a 2-0 victory over Rochdale.

Stead put the Bees ahead with just 60 seconds on the clock after scoring from a cross.

But the hosts missed the chance to double their lead when Zak Brunt had a penalty saved in the 35th minute.

Stead celebrated his brace in the 72nd minute to send Barnet above Bromley – who could only draw at Oldham – in the table to sit 17 points behind league leaders Chesterfield, while Rochdale dropped to 14th.
