Adams: Barnet were better than us

Manager Micky Adams heaped praise on opponents Barnet as he conceded Port Vale were lucky to escape with a point after their 0-0 draw on Saturday.

Edgar Davids ran the show at times along with Oster…

Adams told the media: “It was a good point based on our performance. Barnet were fantastic, they were better than us.

“We didn’t have our usual spark, but we could’ve nicked it at times too. When you consider most of our best players were defenders, that says a lot about our performance.

“We gave Barnet too much time and respect on the ball. Edgar Davids ran the show at times along with Oster. You can’t give any type of player at this level that amount of time and space on the ball. We were very, very luck to come in at half-time 0-0.

“We’re not going to have it easy. Teams aren’t going to roll over and let us tickle their bellies, because that’s not how it is at this level. Barnet didn’t set up to stop us, they just played their own way. We might have to look at the way teams play when we’re away from home.”
