Darren Currie felt “happy with a point” after Barnet’s 1-1 draw away at Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday.

Angelo Balanta’s opener for the Daggers was quickly cancelled out by Josh Walker in the first half to secure a draw for the visitors, and Currie thought that the result was a fair reflection on the game.

Speaking to the club website, he said: “I think both sides can be happy with a point. I wouldn’t say one team over another deserved to win it but I’m happy with a point.

“When you factor in the journey on Tuesday as well, maybe that contributed to us not starting so great and then obviously falling behind, but we’ve recovered that with another very similar finish from Josh to Tuesday night’s finish. On reflection, I think it’s a fair point.”

Walker’s strike made it two goals in two games for the forward who joined from Hendon in 2018, and Currie is happy with the impact that he is having on the team.

He said: “I know there’s a player in there and he’ll just get better and better. I believe in all of the players, and certainly our young ones. I think they’ve all got big futures if they listen and work hard and Josh is another one that is similar to Ephron [Mason-Clark] and JT [Jack Taylor], Wes [Fonguck], all these young boys.

“They’ve got a chance and Josh will grow and grow in confidence from scoring and his performance was okay as well.”

Dagenham were unbeaten in 10 games coming into the fixture and posed a very difficult challenge for the Bees, and while Currie was content with taking a point, he knows that his side have to back that up with another positive result in their next game.

He said: “If I look at the Solihull point, and then we’ve backed that up with a win on the road, it might be the reverse this week. We’ve got a point on the road and now it’s key that we go and back that up with a win on Tuesday night at home.

“Sometimes you can feel frustrated from not winning and obviously really disappointed when you lose, but sometimes you’ve just got to hold your hands up and say it was a decent point against a team that are 10 unbeaten.

“You don’t accidentally go 10 unbeaten so I’ll take a point and there will be things we can improve on, there’s no doubt about that, but I’ll settle for that today.”

The fairly short trip to Dagenham in comparison to other away journeys in the league saw the Bees well backed in East London, and Currie praised the support than the fans gave the team.

He said: “They’ve come out in numbers today and got right behind the boys. It’s nice to see them clapping the boys at the end and the boys returning that and clapping and thanking them.

“I’m always grateful for their support, win, lose or draw but certainly today they were out in numbers and I’m really pleased, so thank you.”
