His side have taken ten points from their last five matches but Barnet boss Edgar Davids believes there is still room for improvement.

The Bees moved up to 20th in League Two following their 2-0 victory against Bradford City on Saturday but, due to other results, remain just two points above the relegation zone.

Goals from Taiwo Atieno and John Oster helped Davids’ side defeat the Bantams but a strong defensive display played a crucial role in the Bees taking all three points.

However, despite an upturn in form and performances in recent weeks, Davids feels there are still things to work on for his side.

"I do have complaints but that’s why I am Dutch," he joked. "There is always room for improvement. Bradford had a chance to make it 1-1 just before we got our second goal so that showed a very good reaction.

"In the Bradford game where we played some really good football. But of course there are things we have to work on though."

The Bees have been beaten just once at home since the middle of October and Davids is happy with their form at Underhill.

He added: "The basic has to be your home form and we try to be as good as we can be when we are playing at Underhill.

"We didn’t do that against Aldershot but we showed what we hoped for and what we expected against Bradford."

Barnet made their first move in the January transfer window by bringing in Adam Thompson on a one-month loan from Championship club Watford last Friday.

The defender made his debut as a second half substitute against the Bantams and Davids is pleased to have secured the services of the Northern Ireland international.

The Bees boss said: "I hope he can develop into a strong recruitment for us and a player that we can benefit from during his time at the club."
