Clovis Kamdjo's late strike lifted the Bees off the foot of the League Two table but Ling claimed his side were worthy of a point, if not more.

"I felt that the best side didn't win the game, we pressed them all the way and I could only ever see one scoreline coming," said Ling.

"I criticised the players after Saturday's game (a 1-0 loss to non-league Harrogate in the FA Cup) but I feel like we've been ambushed.

"Our players are taught how to shoot and hit the target as best we can but we never hit the target on a regular basis and we never really worked the 'keeper enough.

"That's where a lot of the frustration comes from. Saturday was disappointing but I thought this was, all-in-all, a positive performance."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
