Barnet 0-0 Cheltenham

Barnet extended their unbeaten home run to seven games with a point against promotion-chasing Cheltenham.

In a match hampered by poor weather conditions, Kaid Mohamed almost won it for the visitors, but his effort struck the post with Graham Stack beaten.

Jon Nurse, Mark Byrne and John Oster all had chances for the Bees with the latter's long-range effort being the closest the home side came to a goal.

Cheltenham stayed fifth in League Two while Barnet moved up to 20th.

Weather not a hindrance - Davids

"People have played in worse weather, but the football was decent and so was the match.

"We were playing against a team who are fourth in the table, so it's going to be hard and going to be a massive fight.

"I had great confidence in the team that played on Tuesday [against Fleetwood], that's why I let them start again and they did OK. In the second half, we went for the kill, but we were unlucky.

"I am happy that we saw some decent passing and also how my team showed good heart, it's important to show good character."

Cheltenham Town manager Mark Yates told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

'Farcical' pitch frustrates Yates

"I'm relieved we came away with a point, although we certainly deserved something out of the game, but it was tough to just stand up and play. It was pretty farcical to be fair.

"It was the same for both sides, we like to play a bit and the pitch didn't allow us to do that.

"This is a tough place to come, they've beaten some proper teams, but unfortunately we just couldn't force the ball into the net when we had a chance.

"Who knows, it could be a good point. The attitude was there and the effort was spot on, I've had that all season."
