Two goals from Sam Saunders and a Shaleum Logan clincher helped the Bees to their best run of form for almost six years.

Kernaghan said: "I thought it was a red and not a yellow, but at the moment we're just pleased to have kept the run going.
"We'll have to see how the ankle is and make a decision, but for now we're just pleased to have kept the run going."
