Robson: Accepts red card call

Barnet boss Mark Robson admitted he could have few complaints after Edgar Davids saw red in the 1-1 draw with Accrington.

Dutch legend Davids saw red with five minutes left for two bookings in quick succession, the second a foul on Stanley's new player-coach James Beattie.

But Robson was more relieved to see his side secure a point to haul themselves out of the relegation zone after Mark Byrne's penalty cancelled out Romauld Boco's opener.

"I think perhaps in the first half we were in control and we had a few chances we didn't put away," he said. "We went forwards with purpose and really looked quite threatening but we couldn't get that goal. We probably didn't get enough bodies in the box.

"The point takes us out of the bottom two but we hoped to get three points from the game and get a bit closer to the teams above us. But second half they had a few chances of their own and after going a goal down and having to get the equaliser a point is a good result for us.

"I have no qualms about the sending-off. You have to be careful once you've been booked but I would question the first the booking."
