Mark Robson has 'no qualms' with Edgar Davids' dismissal
Barnet joint head coach Mark Robson admits he has “no qualms” about Edgar Davids’ red card in the 1-1 draw with Accrington Stanley.
After a goalles opening 45 minutes, the Bees went behind in the second period when Rommy Boco slotted home from close range.
But Barnet levelled through a Mark Byrne penalty and, despite Davids’ red card, they held on the secure a point.
The Dutchman, who’d been booked for a foul on Will Hatfield earlier in the second half, caught James Beattie and referee Lee Collins showed him a second yellow card.
When asked about the decision to dismiss the Champions League winner, Robson answered: “I think once you’re booked you’ve got to be careful and you can’t make any challenges unless you’re 100 per cent sure.
“So I have no qualms with it. The only thing I would question is the first yellow card; whether that was a definite booking I don’t know.”
The Bees control the opening half and created plenty of openings. However, they couldn’t find the first goal and went in at the break level.
Robson believes that his side must take their chances when they’re on top.
He explained: “I think we were in control in the first half and every time we went forward looked quiet dangerous and threatening. But we couldn’t get the goal to go ahead.
“We probably didn’t get enough bodies in the box I think in the first half. When we did get into positions we needed one or two more in there.
“So that didn’t quite happen but if we get the opportunities and we don’t take them, then the other team are still in the game.”
