Actually, that match summed up the season for me, with Green vs. Akinde.
Mansfield Town 0 - 1 Barnet Akinde 57
From Martin's report:
The Stags were getting on top in the opening stages of the second half and a great ball forward from the returning Danny Rose gave Matt Green a chance to lob the ball over the outrushing keeper but Green lobbed wide of the right post. Just as the Stags were on top, a sucker punch as Mitch Rose gave the ball away just outside the Barnet area, the impressive Gambin played the ball down the left, Akinde got away from Pearce and fired over Shearer into the net on 57 minutes.
Green was moaning about not being in favour with Evans, but even with Murray in charge he was missing crucial chances. Akinde didn't do much in this match but when given half a chance he made sure. Although Pearce could perhaps have done better this time you have to give credit to Akinde for grabbing the opportunity with both hands.
