Darren Currie hailed his Barnet side as “outstanding” as they produced a 2-1 away win at fourth-placed Bromley on Saturday.

Josh Walker and Simeon Akinola were on target for the Bees as they maintained their unbeaten run in the National League and moved up to 13th in the process, just four points outside the play-offs.

Despite remaining unbeaten by November, it was a welcome win after a series of four consecutive draws for the Bees, and Currie was delighted in the manner in which his side got the three points.

He told the club website: “I thought we were outstanding today, to be honest. Firstly, I’ve gone in there and credited the subs, whether it five or 10 minutes, 20 minutes in Mauro [Vilhete’s] case, and considering they’re a very big side, the size of our heart today was incredible. Big heart from everyone.

“We had to deal with an aerial bombardment in the second half. Every single one of them stood up. Loachy [Scott Loach] was outstanding. Our game management was very good today and we looked a real threat on the counter attack. I feel like we deserved the result on the back of that performance today.”

Currie has made no secret of his desire to bring in another striker during the transfer window, but he feels that goalscorers Walker and Akinola are performing admirably in the interim.

He said: “I know we need a striker, I keep going on about it. I also know that I’ve got players like Walks and Simeon because I work with them every day. I know what their capabilities are.

“Simeon has got 14 goals this season and he’s been outstanding. His all-round game today was okay, I’ve been straight with him in there, I think he can do better. But to constantly be a threat and get the winning goal is a credit to him, and Walker as well.

“Since we’ve gone to this shape, as a pair they’ve been a real handful and I’m really pleased for the pair of them that they’ve got the two goals today.”
