Mark Robson and Edgar Davids pleased with Barnet clean sheet against Wycombe Wanderers

First published in Sport by

Mark Robson was pleased Barnet kept their second clean sheet in two matches after his side drew 0-0 with Wycombe Wanderers while Edgar Davids admitted the Bees need to find more consistency in their passing style.

In a poor game, Barnet were the better team in the opening period but didn't create a clear opportunity to take the lead.

The second half was a more even contest and the Chairboys came close through a Junior Morias strike which went just past the post, and Richard Logan’s volley which was deflected wide by Sam Wood.

Nikki Bull did have to produce a good stop to deny John Oster from putting Barnet in front while Gary Doherty denied Davids late on with a strong challenge.

Robson said: “If we could have kept to the same way we were playing in the first half we could have caused Wycombe further problems.

“But I think the biggest thing for us is another clean sheet. That is now two in a row and that is important for us. It is another point and we need to get them on the board.

“So that’s the real positives we will take from it, we defended fantastically.”

Davids, who again played the full 90 minutes for Barnet, added: “In the first half we started slowly but then we had a spell where we backing them in a corner. We played some good football, created triangles and that’s what we have practiced.

“In the second half I didn’t recognised the team. We played long balls all the time and we went a couple of steps back.

“The guys need to be confident but the most important thing is that we kept a clean sheet again. So we have to work from there.

“We play as a team and sometimes it works well and sometimes it doesn’t but the clean sheet is important and we now have to work on the football.”
