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."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
