The season is barely a few weeks old but Mark Robson is still “worried” by what he is seeing from his Barnet side.

Another defeat was felt by The Bees when they lost at Underhill to York on Saturday with Robson looking for a lot of improvement from his side after a performances that worried him: ‘Both result and performance worry me and we looked nervous.

‘There were a few strong words said at half-time and there is still loads of improvement needed.’

It was more what his side didn’t do than what they did that concerned him.

The basics of picking men up and not giving opponents as much time and space as they did will be addressed as will using the ball, and getting it into wide areas more, when looking to create chances.

A “lower regions” mentality seems to have set in and Robson also wants that to change: ‘They had too much time on ball in the first half. We didn’t get close enough to them. When we were in possession we didn’t pass or move well enough. We were very static and never played the game we wanted to.

‘We didn’t get the ball out enough to the wings. It’s something we have to address and put right – we are not creating enough chances.

‘I don’t want them just to lump the ball. If things aren’t going right people get edgy. We have got to stick to the belief but we have to work harder. We have been in the lower regions for too long and we need to get up the league.’
