It all turned a bit nasty on Sunday didn't it!
Barnet looked on for a win over Wrexham on Sunday with time running down they were one-nil up thanks to an early Anthony Acheampong goal in the first half.
Then Edgar Davids literally saw the red mist late in the game when he elbowed Stephen Wright following a scuffle that broke out after a foul by Iffy Allen.
The Bees boss accepted his red card but wouldn't admit that his elbow was overly intended with it more an overzealous approach taken by him.
He said: 'I've got the ball and he wanted to get it off me. I was just a little bit too eager to hold onto the ball and he ran into my elbow.
'If you look at it from that perspective, my intention is to protect the ball. But from the other point of view you can give a red card. So it is what it is.
'I don't have too many complaints because if you do something with aggression then you can hurt somebody. So it is fair enough and it is a red card. My intention was to protect the ball though.'
Both Davids and Wright saw red, but we were still one-nil up but couldn't see this through with a last minute Dan Keates freekick securing the Welsh outfit a 1-1 draw to stop the Bees collecting a much needed win...
With tempers high Wrexham then had another player sent off with Johnny Hunt seeing red after a horrific challenge on Curtis Weston, who had to be stretchered off.
As far as the game goes, lets talk about this for a while!
Overall Davids was happy enough but thinks we have to learn lessons from this draw, namely not concede free kicks around the box.
Adding: 'Attacking wise we did well while defending was ok, not superb. They are a strong team with a strong midfield and it is too bad they scored the goal.
'This season teams have scored incredible goals against us and when that happens you can only applaud it.
'When the ball goes into the corner it is almost impossible to save the balls. The lesson there is not to commit fouls around the box.'
I wonder if Davids will be finned a weeks wages?
