Barnet head coach Edgar Davids has played at many of Europe’s top football stadiums but admits Underhill will live long in his memory.

The Dutch international joined the club in October initially as a player/joint head coach alongside Mark Robson.

Robson left the club in December and Davids took sole control of the Bees – who are currently in the League Two relegation zone with just two matches remaining.

Barnet play their final match at Underhill tomorrow and welcome Wycombe Wanderers to their home of 106 years.

“I think that if you come to Underhill you know it is special,” Davids said on Friday. “I have never seen a pitch with such a steep slope so it will definitely live long in my memory.

“When I first looked at the stadium I thought it was an optical illusion but it has it charms and we embrace it.

“I think that being here at Barnet grows on you. The idea was for me to be here two days a week and suddenly I am here every day from 10am to 7pm.”

He continued: “I think it will be a tense atmosphere where a lot of people turn up to support their team. It will be an emotional day for the fans and everybody involved with the whole club.

“There is a lot of pressure and we could have done ourselves a favour by taking a point or a win from the game midweek because we now have to depend on others to stay in the league.”
