Darren Currie says Barnet “have to react” tomorrow night against Ebbsfleet United after their National League unbeaten run was ended by FC Halifax Town on Saturday.

The Bees came from two goals down through Simeon Akinola and Charlee Adams to be level at 2-2 against Halifax at the break, but second-half goals from Liam Noble and Tobi Sho-Silva condemned Currie’s side to defeat.

Ebbsfleet are currently bottom of the table, and the boss thinks that’s something his side have to capitalise on if they are to produce a reaction.

Speaking to the club website, he said: “We lacked a bit of fight and organisation today. We earnt ourselves an opportunity to get back into the game with two decent strikes but we didn’t defend well enough as a team.

“I don’t think many walk off the pitch with much credit today, but at 2-2 we had opportunities that we should have scored and it could have been a different game. But we were comfortably the second-best team today and didn’t deserve anything out of the game.

“We have to react. It will be a test of character in how we respond because we have only tasted defeat once this season. We responded well last time and the players have to raise their game and be better than they were today, there is no doubt about that.

“I said Tuesday is about picking up points when you are not at your best. We weren’t at our best today and picked up no points, which is what we deserved.”

Barnet remain in the play-off spots in the National League, while a win tomorrow could put them level on points with Yeovil Town in fourth.
