Eastleigh and Barnet played to a 3-3 draw in their National League round three away contest as Sierra Leone International Idriss Kanu scored a brace on Tuesday.

Paul McCallum was on target twice as Eastleigh staged a remarkable comeback to draw 3-3 with Barnet in the National League.

Having led with goals from Sierra Leone International Idris Kanu and Danny Collinge in the 15th, 18 and 30th minutes, respectively, the Bees looked on course to maintain their 100% start to the season as they surged into a 3-0 lead after just 30 minutes.

Idris Kanu tapped in at the far post to get the ball rolling after 14 minutes, but four minutes later, it was two as Danny Collinge headed in his third goal of the season.

Kanu’s second looked to have wrapped the points up on the half-hour mark before McCallum got Eastleigh back in it on the stroke of half-time with a cool finish after a counter-attack.

Scott Quigley made the Bees sweat midway through the second half, and McCallum earned a point six minutes into stoppage time when he headed home.
