Darren Currie rued Barnet’s decision making as their winning run in the National League came to an end with a 0-0 draw at Aldershot Town.

The Bees had scored 11 goals in their previous three league matches but rarely threatened in front of goal against a struggling Shots side.

Speaking to the club website after the game, Currie said: “Considering how clinical we’ve been in the final third of late, one or two [players’] decision making wasn’t great.

“We had a situation late on where Ephron [Mason-Clarke] has broke and should’ve just squared it to Dunny [James Dunne] and give Dunny a one-v-one with the keeper but he chose to try and beat his man.

“Simeon has had a great header, unbelievable save by the keeper in all fairness, but I’m not too disappointed. We’ve come away from home and we’ve kept a clean sheet and we looked quite solid defensively. I don’t recall them ever really making Loachy [Scott Loach] work too much. He had a little situation at the end that he snuffed out but other than that I thought we were the side looking most likely.

“I felt they grew into the game in the second half but what we’ve been doing well of late is counter attacking well and looking a real threat in the final third. We just didn’t have that cutting edge about us today.”

The injury list for Barnet has been piling up in recent weeks and the absence of Dan Sweeney and Ricardo Santos meant they had just one recognised centre-back on the pitch, while a knock for Josh Walker during the game saw the same happen up front.

On the injuries, Currie said: “When you really analyse it and see that we’ve got one centre half on the pitch and when Josh Walker goes off we’ve got no centre-forwards on the pitch, yet we’re still looking a threat, without being clinical today.

“There is plusses to getting a clean sheet. Obviously, Aldershot have been in good form at home of late. It’s funny how football turns around quickly. I’ve got changing room full of disappointed players that we’ve only drawn the game and that’s what we need going forward. We need to make sure when we’re on the road we pick something up and we get our wins at home. It’s a long season to go still but we won’t be too far away.”

Ephron Mason-Clarke and Dan Sparkes made their returns to the side from injury and suspension respectively, and Currie is happy that he has more options coming back to his disposal.

He said: “It’s nice to have attacking options from the bench. It’ll be nice once we get Shaq [Coulthirst] back, you’ve got to remember he got 20 goals last season. He’s edging closer. And with our defenders, I’m hoping that sooner rather than later they’ll be available for us.

“It will all just contribute to us having a stronger group of players to pick from.”
