Rossi Eames was understandably delighted as Barnet picked up a second straight win at home to Cambridge on Saturday.

The Bees ran out 3-1 winners at The Hive to sneak into seventh place in the League Two table, having started the day level with the U's, who now sit 15th.

Barnet's performance throughout was impressive, leaving Eames smiling after the club turned around a run of four straight defeats to pick up back-to-back wins and get their start back on track.

He said: "I'm delighted with the performance, and the work-rate. With the ball we were excellent, but with David [Tarpey] going off it’s come at a price.

"I’m hoping it’s not going to be too bad, but I’ve got to give credit to the lads on the pitch, they were unbelievable."

Tarpey's injury forced him off only six minutes into the clash in north London, in just his second match for the Bees since signing from Maidenhead United before the close of the transfer window.

Eames added: "Dave has felt his knee jar and a bit of a pop. We’ll have a scan of him on Monday and see how he’ll go from there."

Despite their win, Barnet have kept only a solitary clean sheet in the league so far, in last month's 1-0 win over Luton.

They conceded this time to a 70th-minute goal from Leon Legge, and it proved a bitter pill to swallow for Eames even after his side's impressive performance.

"We’ve got to work on clean sheets," he said. "That’s my fault not the players’. I can’t stand conceding goals, and we’ve got to work on it."
