BARNET player-manager Edgar Davids praised the bouncebackability of his side after a dramatic 3-2 victory over Hyde ensured Barnet remained close to the top of the Skrill Premier.
Super-sub Harry Crawford snatched all three points when his shot from outside the penalty area trickled past Hyde goalkeeper David Carnell in the 84th minute.
Keanu Marsh-Brown and Mark Byrne had earlier given Barnet a first-half lead but two long-range strikes from Liam Thompson left the game heading for a draw.
Davids hailed the strong will of his players after the victory.
“We made it 3-2,” he said. “3-2 shows that mentally we were still strong.”
“We bounced back - we’ve shown we can overcome these things."
The Dutchman believes his players were rewarded for the amount of effort they put into the victory over Hyde.
“We went for the win and we needed put in a lot of power and effort to get it out and we got it out of the fire,” he said.
“You want to be in the driver’s seat from the first minute which we did, but even if you are in the driving seat you still have to steer.”
The Champions League winner is happy with the direction his side are heading in, but insisted there is a long way to go this season.
“If you've played six games and you are at the top of the table or close to it then you are doing well points-wise,” he said.
“But I think it’s important to stay in the race all season.”
