Bees lacked creativity, Allen admits

Barnet manager Martin Allen admitted his side lacked creativity in their goalless draw with Leyton Orient.

Allen, whose team were recently thrashed 5-0 by Portsmouth, made a number of changes but it was not until the second half that the Bees began to threaten.

“I thought it was a slow start but Orient started very well. As the game grew, we got stronger and stronger,” he told Barnet’s website.

“Second half we were the dominant team, but I don’t think we created too much. We had to keep our concentration.

“We’ve had a long week. We played well at Portsmouth but ran out of legs. Losing 5-1 hurts and hurts anyone with a brain.”

Barnet are without a win in four matches, a run which has seen them slip to 18th in the League Two table.
