Barry are absolutely flying, but Chesterfield coy on elusive European play-off spot…

When Kayne McLaggon went off injured, there was disappointment all around Jenner Park, but what they were about to witness, was incredible.
James Demetriou took the game by the scrape of its neck and bagged himself an impressive hat-trick. At times, he was scintillating and he could be key as Barry aim for that final elusive play-off spot come the end of the season, especially if McLaggon’s injury is a long-term one.

It some start for the visitors, but Iwan Williams will be very disappointed with the way his side collapsed so unexpectedly in the second-half
In the first-half, they looked a constant threat on the counter-attack and at one stage, had Barry rattled after taking the lead inside the minute, so their second-half performance came somewhat as a surprise, but credit where its due, the hosts were sensational after equalising and fully deserved their third win on the spin.
