Curtis Weston was unable to hide his frustration following Barnet’s 0-0 draw with Dagenham & Redbridge on Good Friday.

The Bees never really got going and after Kyle De Silva was harshly sent off tensions reached breaking point as Barry Fuller was dismissed after the full-time whistle.

Speaking post-match Weston revealed his frustration after failing to beat a side he considers far weaker than the Bees.

“It was a very frustrating match and an even more frustrating result. Even though we didn’t show it we are a better team than them.

“They came with a game plan and it worked in the end because we struggled to cope with them or create many clear opportunities.”

The Bees currently sit four points clear of the bottom two but Weston was still unable to hide his disappointment at the result and the referee.

“We have a tiny bit of breathing space now and we are happy with the point but it was a massive opportunity to win on Friday.

“Like I said before it was just an incredibly frustrating day but we need to get on with it now and look ahead to Monday.”

He added: “Kyle De Silva has been doing well for us and I thought the decision to send him off was a very bad one from the referee.”

Barry Fuller was also shown a red card but his dismissal came after the final whistle and the midfielder admits he is unsure what took place.

“I didn’t see Barry get sent off so I don’t really know what has happened other than what the lads have said.

“I didn’t want to get involved so I walked straight in.”

Weston was however quick to explain that victory against AFC Wimbledon on Monday would make Friday’s point look ever so different.

“Monday is a massive game for us now and we will do all we can to get the three points. If we win this point will look like a very good one.

“Both teams need to get the win and it will be a very good game. It may get a little scrappy but matches at the bottom often do.

“If we perform how we know we can we will pass them off the pitch I have no doubt that we can come away with the three points.”
