Ross Jenkins believes Barnet have to beat Fleetwood Town
Ross Jenkins believes Barnet have to beat Fleetwood Town at Underhill on Tuesday night.
The on loan Watford midfielder is confident that if the Bees make a positive start to the match they can come away with three points.
Speaking to barnetfc.com Jenkins stated that with just one point separating the bottom six clubs the Bees have to win at all costs.
“I think everyone knows that we have got to win. We are in no position to go out and settle for a point or simply try our best, we need to go out there are perform.
“Sometimes it does not matter what type of football you play as long as you win. At this moment in time we have to be focussed on getting the three points in any way we can.”
The Bees currently sit on 40 points and the midfielder believes that three or four positive results will ensure their safety.
“I haven’t seen any division this close before. I know the Championship and League One are often close but this year in League Two it is even tighter.
“You win one, you jump up the table, but you lose one and you’re in the relegation zone. It is going to be tough but I am sure we can get three or four positive results that will make sure we are safe.”
Jenkins continued by expressing his belief that the Bees are better equipped to avoid the drop than some of their relegation rivals.
“You can’t predict any scores in this league, anyone can beat anyone. I was on loan at Plymouth earlier in the season and I am pretty sure we have got a better team here.
“Plymouth is a great club but you cannot compare the two. We have got some great individuals here and I am sure if we all work together, start playing as a team and cut out the sloppy mistakes then we can turn Fleetwood over.”
The 22-year-old scored a sensational overhead kick on the weekend, his first goal for the club, but admitted the Bees were punished for a sloppy start which they cannot let happen again.
“It was very bittersweet because we let in some sloppy goals early on and they really killed us,” explained Jenkins. “If we can cut out the individual errors, particularly early on, then we will win as we will score goals.
“It was great to score my first goal, now I just hope I can get another one today. I have never scored an overhead kick so it was a special goal.”
Despite defeat to Accrington Stanley Jenkins is enjoying his time at the club and revealed that there was a positive reaction from the players on Monday.
“It was really upbeat in training and no one was down. Being that way will not do you any favours. There is enough ability in the team to win games, now we have to stop talking about it and go and do it.”
“It took a while to adjust at first but I think the training here is top notch. Everyone wants to learn and do their best. There are no big timers and we all just want to work hard and push up the league.”
