Barnett sit 22nd of 23 teams after two draws and five losses.

"It was clear how much Harry Kewell wanted to have a positive impact, but ultimately the results and the poor start to the season have dictated our decision," Barnet head of football Dean Brennan said after parting ways with Kewell and his assistant Paul Butler.

"The plan for this season was for Barnet FC to be challenging in the top half of the table and that is still very much our aim."
