After a 5-2 defeat last night, Kevin Watson thought his Ebbsfleet side looked like a team with a hangover from a long away trip rather than Barnet, despite the Bees having had a late return from Barrow on Saturday.
“Barnet got home from Barrow at 4.45 on Sunday morning because their lad had a head injury and they sat in the hospital until 10pm,” the Fleet manager told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster.
“But it looked like we’d been in Barrow till whatever time.
“I will take it on the chin if there’s a reaction on Saturday. It’s a kick up the backside.
“We now need to bounce back immediately from that, we need to work even harder on the training ground.”
