Jake Hyde got the show on the road for Barnet with a clever lob over advancing Millers goalkeeper Andy Warrington after 21 minutes, racing on to Mark Byrne's ball down the right flank.

And eight minutes from time Barnet completed the job against their promotion-chasing hosts, Ricky Holmes beating his marker wide on the left and squaring for substitute Andy Yiadom to sweep home an unmissable chance.

"I didn't expect it," Davids said. "But it went our way.

"Two very good goals as well but we have played better without getting the points, but we got the points. We had some good spells which I am happy about, but we have played better.

"If it had been 0-0 I would definitely have been delighted, but now I am even happier because we won.

"That's three wins in four but we still have to stay focused because every game for us is a final no matter who we play against because, at the end of the day, we are still close to the bottom of the league. Four of the bottom five have won so if they keep on winning we have to keep on winning."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
