Barnet head coach Edgar Davids admitted he was 'sad' following the Bees 2-1 defeat against Macclesfield Town
12:12am Wednesday 25th September 2013 in Sport
Edgar Davids felt his Barnet players showed “a lot of heart and a lot of good intentions” in their 2-1 defeat to Macclesfield Town but admitted his side must stop conceding from set-pieces.
The Bees had an early chance to take the lead but Marciano Mengerink’s penalty was saved by Rhys Taylor.
Barnet fell behind in the 27 minute as a simple free-kick into the Barnet area saw Jennings escape his marker and tap past Graham Stack from six yards.
Jennings added a second soon after as his shot from 20 yards found the top corner of Stack’s goal.
Mauro Vilhete pulled a goal back for the Bees in the second period but they were unable to find an equaliser.
Davids said: “It is sad because today I saw a lot of heart and a lot of good intentions. But two errors have then made it hard for us. In the second half we got the goal but it was too late.
“It was definitely an improvement on Saturday because if we had played for another hour on Saturday we wouldn’t have won the game.
“But today I felt if we had another five minutes we would have got the draw.”
He added: “But you can’t concede from set-pieces, that is a given. If you do then that shows when you are not sharp when you need to be.”
