Barnet boss Darren Currie said his side put in a “good all-round performance- in their 1-0 win over Maidenhead United on Saturday.

Josh Walker scored the only goal for the Bees in the second half to give the side their second successive win and extend their unbeaten run to five matches.

Maidenhead arrived at The Hive with an unbeaten away record in the National League, giving Currie even more reason to be positive after his side’s success.

Speaking to the club website, he said: “I thought we deserved it. We could have done more in the final third because 1-0 is always a tricky scoreline. I give a lot of credit to the back four because they put their bodies on the line, flying in front of shots, so they deserve credit for their performance.

“I thought it was a good all-round performance, but me being me I always want more from the boys.”

Although the win was by just the single goal, Currie also heaped praise on his attacking players for their continued patience and ability to find the important breakthrough in the game.

He said: “We have spoken about teams coming here with different game plans. Some teams come here and choose to sit deep and try to hit us on the counter. But we have game plans for all scenarios and today we were patient, we moved the ball around well and worked really hard off the ball.

“We spoke at half-time about having a bit more penetration in the final third and it played out well in the second half. I want to be a possession-based team, it involves a lot of unselfish running and movement off the ball. I thought the boys worked really hard.”

Currie handed a second Barnet debut to Wes Fonguck after the midfielder re-signed last week, while youngster Loic Hernandez impressed on his debut at left-back, and the boss hailed the performances of both.

He said: “He [Fonguck] was very good today. He ran out of steam towards the end but his contribution was very good. He handles the ball really well, he will get us goals and that will come as he gets fitter over the next few weeks.

“He [Hernandez] can be really proud of his debut today, he did ever so well, he worked hard and I congratulate him on his performance.

“In football, the door opens without you knowing. We have one or two full-backs injured currently, so the opportunity presented itself today.”

The Bees go again tomorrow night when they welcome Aldershot Town to The Hive for their rearranged fixture, and Currie insists that the Bees have to keep this momentum going.

He said: “Winning football matches breeds confidence. Our confidence will be better following the back-to-back wins but there will be no complacency on Tuesday night.

“We have to approach the game very focussed, it will be a difficult game. We have to impose ourselves on Aldershot and keep this little run of form going.”
