Barnet boss Dean Brennan was ecstatic with his side's performance as they comprehensively saw off Kidderminster Harriers 4-1 at the Hive to end their National League campaign on a high.

Nicke Kabamba’s 25th league strike of the season came in between goals from talisman Danny Collinge and Luke Freeman before Idris Kanu struck late on to round off a comfortable afternoon for the Bees and confirm second place heading into the play-offs this weekend.

“Fantastic. An emphatic victory, to be fair," said Brennan.

"They came and made it difficult for us in the first 20, but we just figured it out and slightly changed the system.

“We knew what we needed to do, and we did that really well. The boys followed the game plan really well.

"I’m delighted for Luke Freeman to get his first goal for us, and obviously Idris needed a goal as well. Getting Ade back was a big bonus as well, so all in all, a great team performance and a good victory.”

Centre-half Adebola Oluwo came on just after the hour to mark his return from a long injury lay-off ahead of a crucial week for the Bees.

And Brennan touched on the achievements of his side despite the lack of defensive options this season.

“We’ve been depleted defensively. We’ve had a lot of injuries all season, so for us to come second and do what we’ve done is an amazing achievement,” he added.

“The amount of injuries we’ve had and the volume of defensive injuries make me delighted to get Ade back in. You can see his power and his strength.

"It’s like he hadn’t been away for the last few months. I thought he had an outstanding performance when he came on, so I’m delighted he’s back.”

On finishing the season on a high, the Bees boss was keen to point to the efforts of his players but warned they still have work to do defensively if they want to be successful in gaining promotion to the Football League.

“We scored 90-odd goals. I would have liked us to let in less, but to get 86 points is an amazing achievement,” he said.

“Our target was 90 points at the start of the season that we had set ourselves, and we’ve come up just a bit shy of that.

"But when we did get into the position when we lost to Chesterfield here, it was important we picked up points, and I think we’ve done that really well.”

Barnet will now host Solihull Moors or Halifax Town in the semi-final of the play-offs at the Hive on Saturday evening (5.30pm) after Gateshead were refused entry to the EFL for failing to meet the criteria.
