Robson: Can't keep shooting ourselves in the foot

Robson: Can't keep shooting ourselves in the foot

Barnet slumped to another defeat at the weekend, this time Gillingham were the latest side to put them to the sword when they won 3-1 at Underhill.

Mark Robson, due to the fact he seems to be saying the same things after each game, feels like a broken record: 'I seem to be saying the same things to the players each week, which is a bit disappointing to be honest. We've conceded three goals, all of which were avoidable.'

Again Robson felt The Bees "started the game well" but two quickly conceded goals changed the complex of things: 'I feel like we started the game well again. Up until the goal, we looked okay. We then conceded a second really quickly and suddenly we're 2-0 down.

'We probably created more opportunities than we have in a number of games, but we've still come out on the wrong end of a 3-1 scoreline. We're trying to get another striker in, that's for sure. The pleasing thing for me is having created goalscoring chances.'

That "broken record" or "parrot-like" sense is something he wants to see the back of and has demanded improvement: 'I'm beginning to sound like a parrot in the dressing room. We can't keep shooting ourselves in the foot. We've got to look at ourselves. We've not tracked a runner for the first, we've not marked for the second. We have to do our jobs.'
