Darren Currie labelled his Barnet players as “soft” and said he lacked “men” after they fell to a 2-1 defeat at leaders Barrow on Saturday.
The Bees started strongly but were rocked by two goals in four first-half minutes from Josh Kay and a John Rooney wonder strike and struggled thereafter, although Jack Taylor did gave the visitors late hope when he capitalised on a defensive mistake.
The defeat was a fourth in five National League games for Barnet and saw them drop to 16th in the table, prompting the head coach to issue a scathing assessment of his players.
Asked why conceding the opening goal had such a detrimental effect on his side, Currie told the club’s YouTube channel: “That’s because we’re soft. I’ve got a lot of boys in there, I haven’t got enough men, not enough people that want to take responsibility.”
