Barnet’s caretaker manager Darren Currie has said he wants the job on a permanent basis.

The 44-year-old former Bees midfielder led his side to a third-round FA Cup win over Championship promotion chasers Sheffield United at Bramall Lane at the weekend. The ex-Wycombe Wanderers and Brighton man is the nephew of Blades legend Tony Currie.

He has been in charge since John Still decided to retire recently, and he hopes that the cup success for the mid-table Vanarama National League club will aid his cause in getting the gig full-time.

He told Sky Sports: “It’s a job I want, it’s the place I want to start. Hopefully today will help me.

“I’m so proud, honoured to be leading them the way they performed.

“I asked them to play with no fear today and I think they managed to achieve that. They were outstanding.”
