Edgar Davids praised the backbone shown by his Barnet side in the Bees' 3-3 draw with Aldershot Town

Edgar Davids praised the ‘backbone’ shown by his Barnet side as the Bees came from two goals behind to claim a 3-3 draw at Aldershot Town.
Brett Williams put the Shots ahead after two minutes but the Bees equalised in the second half through Curtis Weston.
The Shots retook the lead as a Manny Oyeleke strike beat Graham Stack and a second from Williams put Aldershot in control.
However, Barnet pulled a goal back with 12 minutes remaining through Marciano Mengerink and Harry Crawford’s late equaliser earned the Bees a share of the points.
Reflecting on the game, Davids said: “On one side I am very happy that they bounced back but I am surprised we didn’t play in the first half.
“When we play we break the opponents down and in the second half we profited from that. In the first half we shouldn’t concede and then sloppy mistakes and sloppy goals meant it was hard.
“But it is a hard fought point and the guys showed some backbone.”
He continued: “If you look at the first half and then you are behind 3-1, then yes it is feels like a win. But if you look at the second half I don’t understand why that happened in the first place.
“The team is confident, that is not the problem. We can outplay every team but you need to do that for the whole 90 minutes.”
