BARNET player-manager Edgar Davids believes his side need to be more clinical if they are going to challenge for promotion this season after watching his side draw 1-1 against Nuneaton on Saturday.
Jake Hyde got Barnet off to the perfect start with his fourth goal in four games but the Bees had to settle for a point after Andy Brown equalised for the visitors.
And Davids, who is yet to feature in the matchday squad this season, believes his side’s lack of ruthlessness in front of goal cost them what should have been three points for the Bees
“I think we lost two points today and we shot ourselves in the foot,” Davids said.
“We created enough chances, not even counting the half chances, to bury this game immediately after 20 minutes and if you don’t do so, you know with football law the other team will get one back and that’s what happened.
“Second half they played better than the first and we still found difficulties to score the goal, but that’s football, that’s part of the sport.
“If you play so well, like we did first half, and you have so many chances, then you have to be clinical and that’s what we have to be - clinical.
Davids was coy about whether or not he would return to the squad for Barnet’s next match away at Braintree Town, but hinted he may make changes for the trip to Essex on Monday night.
“I’m going to see who is fit, who is 100%, and evaluate the game,” he said.
“We’ll see who is up to standard and which of the players will be ready. Then we will make a decision on Monday.”
