Tom Champion: “It was another great win”

2 March 2016

Midfielder Tom Champion looks back on our victory over the Pilgrims.

Tom Champion feels that Barnet can beat any team in League Two on their day, after the Bees defeated promotion-chasing Plymouth at The Hive.

Discussing Tuesday night’s match, Tom said:

“It was another great win and we’re on a decent run at the moment.

“Maybe our standards weren’t there in the first half – we were a bit disappointed and the manager was a bit disappointed with the way that we were playing.

“But I don’t think that they had a lot of the game, and I think that we were in second gear for a bit of it.

“We were much happier with the second half; we got the goal and did a solid job defensively.

“We’ve had quite a few clear sheets in the last few games now, and we’re happy with the three points tonight.

“I think we’ve got to take one game at a time.

“We need to get as many points on the board as possible, and finish as high as we can.

“That’s the only thing that we’ll look at now.

“In the last few games we’ve shown that we can give anyone a decent game, and that we can win on our day as well.

“We want to keep pushing up the league - we’ve got momentum, but we can’t take our foot off the gas.

“We’ve got good results against a couple of decent sides now, but this league is funny and anyone can beat anyone.

“We know that, so we need to be right on it no matter who we play.

“We’ll have to be on it again on Saturday, to get something out of the match against Hartlepool.

“The boys are confident, and we’ve got a good record at home.

“We can beat anyone on our day if we’re right.

“You can go on a decent run and beat teams like we have done recently.

“But we’ve also let ourselves down on occasion and slipped up against other teams as well.

“So we really need to keep that momentum going now we’re on a good run.

“Hopefully we’re in a slightly more comfortable position at the moment, but we’re definitely not taking our foot off the gas.

“There’s still quite a lot of the season left, and we know that we could easily go on a bad run if we’re not on our game.

“We don’t want to get sucked in with the teams below us in the table, but we can start looking up the league with a couple more wins.

“There are still plenty of points to play for.”
