Barnet manager Tim Flowers did not hide his immense frustration at his side’s 5-1 loss last night to King’s Lynn Town.
The Bees remain second-bottom of the National League, some nine points from safety, and Flowers told the club’s website after the away-day drubbing to one of their relegation rivals:
“That was like watching children play, it’s nuts and bolts defending restarts. I can’t keep putting things on in training any more and coach these simple restarts.
“We’re in the game at 2-1 and concede a goal like that. It is pathetic.
“They could’ve scored more than that, make no mistake. The fourth goal we concede a free-kick and we’re too busy complaining and moaning.
“They go 3-v-3 and score. It’s absolutely pathetic.
“The bottom line is, when you look in the mirror, you know deep down whether you’ve been good enough and no one can say that they’ve been good enough tonight. You can try and kid a kidder but you can’t hide from yourself.”
