BRENTFORD lost to lower league opposition for the second time this week as they suffered penalty shoot-out agony at Underhill.
Just three days after being dumped out of the FA Cup by Wrexham, they were sent spinning out of the JPT as Jonathan Douglas's miss from the spot proved costly.
Last season's finalists had dominated the game and they should've had it wrapped up in normal time.
The visitors flew out of the blocks in the opening 10 minutes and should've been in front, but Niall McGinn failed to capitalise on a mistake from the Barnet backline when his lobbed effort bounced back off the bar.
Sam Saunders fired over moments later, Marcus Bean flashed an effort inches wide, while Clayton Donaldson failed to get on the end of McGinn's cut back.
Barnet had keeper Dean Brill to thank after the break with a fine double save to deny Donaldson and then Toumani Diagouraga's follow up.
At the other end, Mark Marshall beat two Brentford players before firing into the side netting as the hosts had a rare sight of goal.
Donaldson squandered a golden chance for the visitors when he shot tamely at Brill, while Harlee Dean's flick was kept out by the Barnet keeper moments later.
Brentford had a let off when Marcel Eger let in Izale McLeod, but Shaleum Logan was on hand to block Clovis Kamdjo's goal-bound effort.
Dean was twice denied by Brill late on as it ended goalless after 90 minutes.
