Jimmy Smith's double downs Barnet

Jimmy Smith scored twice to earn Crawley a 2-1 win at Barnet, who conceded a late goal for the third successive match.
Smith gave the Red Devils the lead in the 63rd minute with a close-range finish into the roof of the net.
Bees striker Simeon Akinola came off the bench and made an immediate impact as he levelled the score in the 65th minute with an easy finish after Mauro Vilhete squared the ball to him.
Crawley captain Smith was not be denied, though, and he grabbed the winner with a header three minutes from time.
The visitors were inches away from scoring an early goal when Enzio Boldewijn's header rattled the crossbar and bounced down onto the line but Barnet managed to scramble it clear.
At the other end, Glenn Morris made a great double save to deny Shaq Coulthirst after he latched onto the rebound of Jack Taylor's effort.
Shortly after the half-hour mark, David Tutonda make an excellent block to stop Lewis Young from scoring and Tutonda was the hero again in the second half as he cleared an Ibrahim Meite shot off the line.
