MILLERS WIN DELIGHTS DAVIDS

14 January 2013

Edgar Davids hailed his side after they beat Rotherham United 2-0

Edgar Davids revealed his delight after Barnet Football Club secured their third win in four at The New York Stadium.

The Bees claimed a 2-0 win over the Millers with goals in each half from Jake Hyde and Andy Yiadom.

Speaking post-match, Davids praised his side’s performance and commitment not just for the 90 minutes that led to victory but for the hard work in the week that preceded. 

“I am very pleased because I did not expect the result but fortunately for us it went our way on Saturday.

“I am very happy because we worked on counter-attacking in training and it led to us scoring two very good goals.” 

Since Ricky Holmes inspired the Bees to a 3-2 win over Burton Albion they have taken 13 points from a possible 18 but Davids stressed that results are simply a reward for the Bee’s continued efforts. 

“I think that we have played even better in some games this season but come away with no points so it is great to get the win.

“We had some good spells in which the team played very well but no matter the result you have to take pride in a great performance against a very good team in Rotherham United.”

Davids admitted that he would have taken a point prior to kick-off but continued to highlight the improvement shown by his side on a game to game basis.  

“If you had asked me before the game for a 0-0 draw then I would have taken it so I am obviously delighted with the result. 

“I am not only pleased with the win but also with the way we played because I saw things in the way we played that are very encouraging going forward.”

The Bees are now looking for a third consecutive win against Fleetwood Town who currently sit eighth in Npower League Two.

 “I am now looking forward to next weekend when we play Fleetwood Town because I want to see how my side cope against another good team.  

“I saw them play a couple of games earlier this season and I think they are one of the best footballing sides in the division.”

Davids continued by declaring that every game is now a cup final for the club who despite their fine form sit just three points above the drop zone. 

“Sometimes you are lucky and sometimes you play well and it pays off, the important thing for us is to stay focused because all of the teams at the bottom seem to keep winning.

“Every game for us is a final, it does not matter who we play against we need to try and secure a positive result because we are still near the bottom of the league.”

One man who is unlikely to feature against the Cod Army is Andy Iro whose afternoon was cut short following a head injury.

 “Andy was taken to hospital but we were quickly informed that it was not a serious injury which was great news for us and Andy.

“We still have to be cautious however because when you have an injury like that it can still put you out of action for a week or two.”
