Well I really enjoyed that...

Cannot add much to what has already been written.

Barnet's defence was shocking. The number 6 made McNulty of Luton look like Twiggy and didn't have a tenth of his application.

Pleased for Mackreth and Arnold after recent games.

LJL got through so much work today.....

I watched it on BT Sport and was impressed by the whole team's performance.

As others have said, aside from that moment of poor defending by Toto, we controlled that match brilliantly against the division's best team.

I thought Palmer just had that extra bit of quality about him. Looks like he could be an important player for us if he can repeat that display.

He drew some praise from the commentary team actually, for his willingness to run and run and run, and defend from the front. Sometimes when you bring a player like that into the side - someone like Shane Long, who chases everything - it raises the energy levels of others.

Brown and Disley looked accomplished in midfield, while Mackreth and Arnold posed them problems from out wide.

I'm also pleased for Mackreth - he has got a bit of criticism, but since the end of November he's been chipping in with goals, and he's got his fair share of assists too.

McKeown didn't have to do much. Thought Pearson was superb - and I thought that was a naughty challenge by Akinde. Looked like he knew exactly what he was doing. I bet he's not used to being snuffed out of games like that.

Magnay was excellent.

Thought we were excellent today. Think Hurst and the team deserve a lot of the credit.

Shop and Palmer worked really well together and I hope we can keep these together. Arnold and Magnay were also excellent. Our worst player was Mckeown - just didn't do anything  -  

I though Barnet looked a good side for the 20 minutes before half time an 5 minutes, I an see why they are top of the league. Cook looked quality and Akinde's movement was good but our third killed them off. Allen played right into our hands by going 4-2-4 creating space in the middle of the park which Arnold and Mackraith flourished with.

I think this result shows why we do better away and against good sides. When teams attack us we are good enough to soak up the pressure and hit them on the counter when they're stretched. But when team sit deep we just don't have another way to break them down. I think against average sides we need to look at playing 4-3-3 with neilson sitting behind our front pair.

One final point - our effort was superb and our fitness was excellent - would we have been able to do this had we played Gateshead midweek? I think we got slightly lucky there and it is something for Hurst (and Fenty to ponder).

Anyway onwards and upwards. if we win our games in hand and beat them at he Hive we are only 3 points behind them - but that's a big IF.

We live in hope but I suspect he has an open return ticket for the next defeat...
