Barnet boss Martin Allen believes his side showed ‘great courage’ in their 4-0 victory against AFC Wimbledon.

The Bees put in a fine performance and goals from Ricky Holmes, Sam Deering, Ben May and Mark Hughes ensured an important three points for Allen’s men.

It was a game Barnet had to win to remain two points above the relegation zone as Hereford United recorded a surprise 3-0 win at Crawley Town.

Speaking after the victory Allen said: “Well done to them (the players) all they played really well. I enjoyed watching them play. I thought they showed great courage to take on that last game at home, they were playing under a bit of pressure and I thought they did really well.

“I patted them all on the back, shook them all by the hand and then told them we've got another week to go.”

He continued: “It (survival) is still in our hands. More importantly it was about the team playing to the maximum and putting in a good performance right from the start.

“All the players played their part; the subs that came on did well. The senior players that are injured helped us during the week.

“All the staff have been fantastic and then of course the crowd getting behind the players. You see players putting in that energy and commitment and we played some good football.

“We've got one more tester next week because Hereford had a great result. So on we go again to Monday. We played some good football and the supporters really got behind the players and that's really key to the unity that we've urged from everybody.
