Daniel Iversen compounded Fulham's misery by saving an Aleksandar Mitrovic penalty - his first touch after coming off the bench - just moments earlier.
Sheffield United began the day 84 places above Barnet but were outplayed by their lowly opponents for whom former Tottenham trainee Shaquile Coulthirst won it with a 21st-minute penalty after Richard Stearman brought down Ephron Mason-Clark.
"It's unbelievable", Barnet captain Callum Reynolds said after the north London club's triumph.
Manchester City swept to its biggest win under Pep Guardiola with a 7-0 thrashing of second-tier Rotherham.
Fourth-tier Newport County are at home to Premier League Leicester in Sunday´s 1630 GMT kick-off.

Elsewhere, League One Doncaster enjoyed a superb 3-1 away win at Championship side Preston.
