Edgar Davids felt his Barnet players “defended Underhill with pride” as the Bees defeated Wycombe Wanderers 1-0 in the final match at their home of 106 years.

More than 6,000 fans crammed themselves into the old stadium and witnessed an impressive Barnet performance.

Chances came and went throughout the match but Jake Hyde finally broke the deadlock in the 81st minute as he turned home a Luke Gambin cross.

Wycombe had rarely threatened but in stoppage time were awarded a penalty as Tom Flanagan fouled Bruno Andrade.

Joel Grant took the spot kick but Graham Stack produced a terrific save to the delight of the Barnet supporters.

The Bees saw out the final moments to secure a vital three points in their League Two relegation battle.

Reflecting on a dramatic final day at Underhill, Davids said: “The guys really defended Underhill with pride and as our fortress, because we have not lost many games here at home.

“It was a wonderful atmosphere from front of a sold-out crowd. The players put great effort in and everyone played with big heart.

“We scored ten minutes before time and I thought that was fantastic. We added a little bit of drama with the penalty as well.”

The Bees head coach continued:“The penalty was surreal. I thought ‘not again’. We have a tendency of making errors in the last minute, it is a negative trademark we have.

“I didn’t think Stacky would save it to be honest but that is because nine times out of ten penalties are scored.

“But when he saved it, it was great. I could not have written a better scenario.”
