Ten man Barnet beaten by Boreham Wood


0

Boreham Wood consigned struggling Barnet to a third straight Vanarama National League defeat with a 3-0 win at The Hive.

Kabongo Tshimanga broke the deadlock in the 19th minute, slotting the ball in after a deep free-kick was flicked on through the penalty area.

Barnet were reduced to 10 men after 28 minutes when defender Myles Judd was shown a straight red card for deliberately handling the ball as it was going in, and Tshimanga dispatched the resulting penalty.

Midfielder Tom Champion volleyed in a well-taken third goal for the visitors just before half-time.

In the second half, Bees keeper Scott Loach saved an acrobatic effort from Corey Whitely and Gus Mafuta saw his 20-yard strike rattle the crossbar as the Wood closed out a fourth straight league victory which moves them into the top 10 – and just two points adrift of the play-off places.

Barnet meanwhile sit second bottom of the National League table, just three points ahead of bottom place Dover Athletic.

The Bees have not won in their last 11 in all competitions, a run that stretches back to November.

Manager Tim Flowers said his team’s defending from set pieces had been “unacceptable” and that his team were “wasting their time” if they did not improve their work at dead ball situations.

“Obviously we had a mountain to climb being down to ten men for over an hour,” said Flowers. “We had the double whammy with the sending off and the penalty, which takes us to 2-0 down. What really irks me is it’s three set plays. For all Boreham Wood’s possession, they’ve scored with three set plays which is unacceptable at this level. If you cannot defend restarts and you can’t defend your own box in the National League, you’re wasting your time.

“That really irritates me, if I’m honest. We must have spent an hour on restarts, for an against yesterday, and sometimes you catch someone’s eye and they’re gawping or whatever, I’ve said to them just now, that’s why we worked on it for an hour yesterday.

“We need to win first contact, if we don’t, we win second contact.

“I said at half-time, what we don’t do here is fall apart or capitulate. We set up to try and defend deeper, defend our box and allow less space in behind.”
