Mauro Vilhete pounced in injury time as Barnet management duo Ulrich Landvreugd and Dick Schreuder celebrated a 1-0 victory over Southport in their first match in charge.

The game appeared to be heading for stalemate until the third minute of stoppage time when Vilhete headed in from a Luisma Villa corner to finally break the deadlock.

It was no more than the Bees deserved after dominating for long spells but struggling to turn their pressure into goals, and only goal difference now keeps them out of the play-off places.

Southport keeper Danny Hurst produced a number of important saves to keep the visitors in the game and they could have gone ahead themselves late on but Nick Jupp produced a smart double save.
