Two-goal hero Ricardo Santos says Barnet must continue to push after moving into the EFL League Two play-off with a 3-1 win over Leyton Orient.

The Portuguese centre-half scored twice in three second-half minutes to set the Bees on their way.

Paul McCallum got one back for the O's but Curtis Weston quickly responded to ensure all three points headed back to The Hive.

"It's a great win because this is a hard place to come," Santos explained afterwards. "They're near the bottom of the table but still, it's a very hard place to come.

"Now we've got to keep pushing, get in the play-off spots, stay there and hopefully get promoted.

"It's good momentum; we've got to keep going and believe in ourselves. We have shown in these good results what we can do. We need to keep going and try to get to the top."

The first goal owed something to goalkeeper Alex Cisak's loss of concentration, but Santos' second displayed a predatory instinct not naturally associated with a centre-back.

"I am buzzing," Santos said. "I didn't expect to score two goals – or even one! I was a bit lucky for the first one but a goal is a goal.

"The second one was a clean finish and I will take that – a great win.

"I was in a good position. Nana saw me out wide, I opened up my foot, it touched me and went in."
