John Still criticised Barnet’s “negative” second half display after Leyton Orient ended the Bee’s five game unbeaten run in the National League at the weekend, report the Times.

The Bees had climbed up to ninth place in the table and could have moved into the Play Off places if they had managed to beat Justin Edinburgh’s side at Brisbane Road, but second half strikes from James Dayton and Macauley Bonne secured the O’s a 3-1 win.

In the end, Orient should have won by a larger margin, with Alabi wasting two good opportunities late on for the hosts, and Bee’s boss Still cut a frustrated figure following the final whistle.

He said: “There’s plenty of positives to take but this game is all about winning football matches. We’re not Barcelona, Manchester City, Inter Milan, or PSG, we’re Barnet. We have to play as a team from the start to the finish of the game.

“We haven’t got the individuals to win games on their own. The team has got to win the game so the team has to function. For an hour the team functioned, but that isn’t good enough and I’m not happy with it.”
