Barnet manager Peter Beadle was pleased with his side’s 1-0 win against Weymouth on Tuesday evening and felt his side could have won the game by a greater margin.

While the Bees’ boss was not dissatisfied with his side’s efforts, he felt there was room to be more clinical and to have claimed the victory in a much more comfortable fashion.

“They’ve put another good shift in in, they’ve carried on from where they left off on Saturday,” said Beadle.

“Scott’s [Loach] really not been troubled by anything in particular, so defensively we looked pretty sound and at the other end we looked quite potent apart from that final push.

“It’s not a negative for me, I’ve just said to them. Obviously we can be a bit more clinical and it would’ve made it far more comfortable for ourselves, but at the end of the day, I’d be a lot more disappointed if we weren’t creating anything, but we’re creating chances and they were good opportunities as well, not just half chances, they were good chances, but the performance as a whole was really solid throughout the whole game.

“Weymouth are difficult to play against and they play quite an expansive game and it’s tough to try and cover everywhere, but the lads have put in another really good shift tonight and got their just desserts in the end.”

Beadle hopes to add numbers to his squad before the weekend, but was nevertheless pleased with the efforts of his players, especially their mentality.

“We’ve talked a lot over the four games now about mentality and about they have to have the right mentality and the approach to attack the games with what we’re asking of them,” he said. “They looked strong tonight, physically competitive and they kept pressing throughout the game. One or two are a bit short of minutes and that showed towards the end but hopefully we’ll have a few more bodies in the ranks by Saturday.”

One player the manager was pleased with in particular was Wes Fonguck, who Beadle hopes can push himself further this season.

“I’ve pushed him this year, I don’t think he’s been pushed enough,” he said. “We’re demanding more of him now and he needs to be fitter and stronger to play the role he wants to play and he needs to add goals to his season. Now he’s got two in the first four games and we’ll be relentless now in pushing him.”
