Barry again set a new club record for consecutive drawn matches in a goal-less home draw against Penybont, having now drawn six Cymru Premier League games in a row since early February.

However, the club’s penultimate home game of the season saw two second half red cards for Barry, making the draw against the odds feel more like a victory.

Eighth-placed Penybont had the lion’s share of possession throughout the match, but Barry goalkeeper Mike Lewis was only occasionally troubled by the visitors.

In the first half, Kayne Owen’s left footed shot from outside the area landed straight in Lewis’s arms, while Mael Davies’s fiercely driven effort was beaten away by Lewis at his front post.

An injury to captain Evan Press forced Barry to reshuffle, with Barry’s best first half effort being a Rhys Davies shot that was deflected into the arms of Pontypridd ‘keeper Adam Pryzbek.

The best chance of the game fell to Barry early in the second half. Picking up the ball in midfield, Keenan Patten drove at the Penybont defence, firing off a low shot across the ‘keeper.

Pryzbek got down well to his right to save, but with Barry substitute Sam Snaith bearing down on goal, Penybont defender Billy Borges got in the way to block his effort inside the six-yard box.

Around the hour, Barry found themselves down to ten men when Davies was sent off for a second yellow card, a late challenge on Penybont forward, Keyon Refell.

As the game entered injury time, there was another red card for Barry. Having been fouled, Barry forward Oli Hulbert was shown two yellow cards in quick succession, presumably for holding the ball too long and answering back to the referee.

Despite playing the final minutes with just nine men, Barry held on for a point in a 0-0 draw.

On Friday, Barry travel to seventh placed Haverfordwest for a 7:45pm kick-off.
