Currie "We all have to take our fair share of responsibility"

25 September 2019

Barnet manager Darren Currie was left infuriated by his sides performance as they lost 3-0 to Ebbsfleet United.

The Fleet dominated large parts of the game and ran out comfortable winners thanks to goals from Myles Weston, Alex Reid, and Ayo Obileye. 

But Currie was left frustrated by his sides lackluster performance and slammed his team for their efforts at the Kuflink Stadium. 

"I think what tonight has highlighted is that we lacked men, we lacked leaders and we lacked knowhow. Unfortunately, that is because the group I have to pick from is limiting us. 

"I normally always back these boys but they have disappointed me tonight and everyone connected with the football club. I very rarely feel as disappointed with a performance as I did tonight." 

The hosts came into the game desperate for three points after a tough start to the season, but Currie felt that was no excuse for the timid showing from his team. 

"We had to win it as well, every game we go into we should be viewed as a must-win game but I had a boys team out there tonight"

"We haven't got our senior players out there but it's just crazy this time last week we were three in a row and shot of confidence, now we look shot of confidence"

"Prior to Halifax we had conceded the fewest goals in the league but now we have blown that out of the water with two really terrible performances"

"We all have to take our fair share of responsibility, but the lack of leaders out there was alarming, to be honest"

The Bees will hope to return to winning ways as they host Solihull Moors at The Hive London this Saturday (28th September). 

Currie has said it's vital that his team respond from a dismal couple of matches otherwise they'll find themselves out the team.  

"We have had words, they know my feelings. There will come a time where I have a bigger group of players to select from and one or two of them won't get away with playing how they did. They'll find themselves in the stands or on the bench and it will hard to get back in. That was unacceptable tonight."
