Darren Currie says he will “take responsibility” for Barnet’s disappointing 1-1 draw against Potters Bar Town in the FA Cup.

Josh Walker first-half goal looked like it was going to be enough for the National League side to edge past their Isthmian Premier League opponents, but Andy Lomas’ header in the 10th minute of stoppage time secured an unlikely draw for the hosts to get their name in the hat for the first round draw.

Speaking to the club website after the game, Currie said: “I have to take responsibility for it. We keep getting undone by set-pieces, we work daily on them but clearly they’re [the players] not taking in the messages because we’re being undone. That’s the last three games now and probably games prior to that where set-pieces are costing us.

“I’ve made most of them, if not all of them, feel like better players than they are. I have to address that because it’s either I need to have a look at how we’re trying to play or I need to make one or two changes because I’ve made people feel better than they are. They’ve proved today that they’re not as good as they think they are, some of them.”

Tuesday night’s replay gives the Bees the chance to rectify the result almost straight away, but Currie would have still been disappointed with the result had Potters Bar not found their equaliser.

He said: “It’s a replay that we shouldn’t, in all fairness, be considering. I’ve got to be honest, even if we’d come in 1-0, I’d be disappointed that we haven’t made more of opportunities and scored one or two more goals.

“I’m as disappointed as anyone, it’s not been a good day for us but we’ll have another chance on Tuesday and we’ll need to play better than we did today if we’re going to go through.”

Worse than the result, though, was the unfortunate injury suffered by Alfie Pavey late in the game, with the striker stretchered off after appearing to break his leg.

Currie said: “He’s in a lot of pain in there. You don’t want to see that with anyone, I’m gutted for him. He’s been trying to do the right thing. Obviously I’m disappointed in him for not taking his penalty today but you don’t want to see that with anyone so I’m really gutted for him.”
