Darren Currie said he was “disappointed” that Barnet find themselves “having another game” after they twice lost a two-goal lead to draw 3-3 with Carshalton Athletic in the FA Trophy.

The Bees were 3-1 up with 12 minutes remaining, as well as having been 2-0 up earlier in the game, but Byron Harrison’s own goal and a Bobby Price penalty earned Isthmian League side Carshalton a replay at the Hive.

Speaking to the club’s website, Currie said: “Two occasions where we were two goals in front; I’d expect us to see the game out and manage the game better than we did.

“I’m really disappointed that we find ourselves drawing and having another game.

“To concede three set pieces as well; obviously the two corners, disappointing, we should have done better there’s no doubt about that. The penalty, the ref said he’s leant across him but I’m not so sure.”

With the heavy backlog of fixtures in the National League, as well as an FA Cup replay against Brentford to contend with, having an extra game in this competition was not part of Currie’s plan.

He said: “I didn’t want that to be the case but we obviously find ourselves needing a replay now. I’ll be confident going into the game in our place that we’ll get the job done but having said that, we should be leaving here today in the next round.

“It’s disappointing in that respect because some of our play was good, we were patient in the first half, we created opportunities; second half we just didn’t manage the game very well.”

The Bees handed a debut to Watford loanee Ashley Charles in the game, who joined the club on deadline day, and Currie was pleased with the start he made as a Barnet player.

He said: “He’s nice and composed on the ball, makes good decisions, got a good range of passing over all distances and now he’ll have 90 minutes under his belt with us and have a better understanding of what we’re trying to do.

“I’m really pleased for him that he’s now around us and getting [Andre] Boucaud back as well, it will be a plus that he’s got another 45 minutes under his belt. We’ve had to try and manage the game a little bit with our substitutions today but no excuses, the game should have been won.”

Currie’s side face an away trip to Griffin Park on Tuesday night as they play Championship side Brentford in an FA Cup fourth round replay, and the boss now faces the task of getting his players prepared for the game after Saturday’s disappointment.

He said: “All I keep going on about and I’ll bore myself with it but I’m going to keep going on about consistency because that is going to determine where we go this season.

“We’ve got another massive fixture on Tuesday that we’ll come in on Monday and prepare for. We’ll go to Brentford confident and have a right go at it.”

The draw for the next round of the FA Trophy will be made live on talkSPORT 2 at 12.15pm today, where Barnet will discover who they could play in the next round should they come through the replay against Carshalton.
