Rossi Eames & Henry Newman post Leyton Orient (A)

7 January 2017

Rossi Eames & Henry Newman speak to barnetfc.com after the Bees overcome Leyton Orient 3-1

Rossi Eames and Henry Newman praised Barnet's performance in and out of possession as the Bees made it two wins in a week with a 3-1 victory at Leyton Orient in EFL League Two.

Ricardo Santos stabbed home from point-blank range in the 63rd minute following a handling error by O's keeper Alex Cisak.

Three minutes later Santos side-footed Nana Kyei's low cross home to set Barnet on course for three points.

Orient got one back when Paul McCallum headed in Callum Kennedy's corner but Curtis Weston responded with a third in injury time to settle it.

"It was a really good performance," Eames said. "Out of possession we were very professional and showed great desire and character and our shape was excellent.

"In possession we played some excellent stuff today and I'm really pleased."

He added: "The message at half time was to keep calm and keep knocking on the door because, as they say, it will open. 

"We told them to keep their standards in and out of possession the same. There was no reason to panic and the players showed that in the second half."

Henry Newman was pleased with Barnet's work in all areas and said: "The big thing we've talked about in and out of possession – and the satisfying thing – is how well the players are buying into what we're doing and applying it on the pitch in and out of possession.

"That's in terms of trying to win possession as high up the pitch as possible, the style of football we're playing to get the ball into those danger zones – never more so than today with the second and third goals.

"We need to build on the types of goals we've scored because we do, those are the things which will make this team better."
