Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law felt Barnet had referee Dean Treleaven “in their pocket” during the Bees’ 1-0 win on Saturday.

A thunderous first half strike from Dani Lopez settled a fairly even contest, although Edgar Davids’ side will feel they had enough chances to kill off the game in the second period.

However, Law believed a draw would have been a fair result and was disappointed with the display from Treleaven.

He said: “I think they have played the referee better than we have, I think they had him in their pocket from the start.

“He has made it a lot more difficult than it needed to be today. But at the end of the day we have no complaints. Our unbeaten run is finished and we will have to go again.”

Law also felt his side were denied two penalties and added: “Dan Bradley has come in off the right and gone in on that one. And a cross has come in and their lad has two arms on Michael Wylde’s back.

“I know for a fact that if that is at the other end they got those two decisions. We haven’t today and that is not me being bitter, it is me being honest. If those are Barnet appeals today they get them.”
