Barnet manager Dean Brennan gave a complimentary assessment of both sides in the aftermath of the 1-1 draw with Bromley at the Hive on Tuesday.

Idris Kanu’s 54th-minute strike opened the scoring for the home side, before Bromley's Louis Dennis struck late on to grab a deserved draw.

“I thought it was a good game. It was a really good game. You can see two play-off teams looking to get promoted,” said Brennan.

“They played direct and were defensively very well organised, and I think from our point of view it was imperative that we didn’t get beaten - to keep control of our own destiny going into the last two games.

“I thought we showed good character at times. Our goalie made some brilliant saves when he had to, and we all know Michael Cheek’s a real danger, and Louis Dennis has come off the bench and scored a goal.

"All in all, I’m delighted with our performance, but I’d like us to be a bit more clinical at times."

An excellent showing from January signing Joshua Keeley between the posts piqued the interest of Brennan, suggesting he always thought the Bees keeper could hit these heights.

“He was excellent. That’s just what we want from our keeper. He made three of four really good saves, and his kicking was outstanding like it always is,” he added.

“He showed good composure as well when Jerome Okimo gave him a hospital ball, so I thought he was outstanding. That’s his best performance for us this season so far. Onto the next, and hopefully he can keep to those standards.”

In spite of a positive run of results for Brennan’s side, injuries sustained to key players have arisen once more, leaving the boss perplexed by the availability of his squad.

“We’re missing Ben Wynter and Adam Thompson. They’re massive players for us and big senior players. They’re all in the backline, and you can see they (Bromley) had full strength as well, so I think we’ve adapted really well," he said.

“We’ve had to play Harry Pritchard left centre-back, which is not his position, but he’s gone and done a good job for us there, so we’re just hoping we get Thommo back and Wynter as soon as possible.

"Ade’s (Oluwo) back training with the medical team, and we’re hoping he’ll be with us next week, so it’s huge for us if they can get through the next few days and be back available for selection.”

The Bees sit five points clear of their promotion rivals, having played a game more, and face Halifax Town on Saturday before hosting relegation strugglers Kidderminster on the final day of the National League season a week later.
