Mark Robson believes his Barnet side produced arguably their best performance of the season despite drawing 0-0 against Rotherham United.

The Bees, predominantly through the outstanding Ricky Holmes, came close several times in a first half which Robson’s men dominated.

The second period was a more even affair. Alex Revell came close for the Millers before he was dismissed for a foul on David Stephens.

Despite the man advantage the Bees couldn’t find the winning goal but Robson stated he was proud of his side’s display.

He said: “I think that was arguably our best performance so far this season. I thought we controlled the game and in the first half in particular we were excellent and perhaps deserved to go in ahead at half time.

“I think in general there were a lot more runs in behind the defence, a lot more shots on goal, better passing and better movement. I was really proud of the performance.

“There were one or two who haven’t been playing recently but they took their chance with both hands. There were some really good performances.”

On the red card the Bees boss added: “I thought he lunged at David to be honest and I think his studs were showing. It may have looked worse than it was but at the time it looked a naughty tackle.

“I think David is unscathed though. The lad may seem a little bit aggrieved, he may not have caught him but from where I was standing it looked like a bad tackle.”

It was the first time Barnet have kept a clean sheet this season and Robson was pleased with how his defended.

He said: “The last few games we have kept clean sheets in the first half and looked solid. We looked solid again, the odd occasion we didn’t will happen in football.

“But I thought we looked organised, disciplined and throughout fairly comfortable.”
