Manager Keith Hill had no complaints about a performance he labelled as ugly after Rochdale's goalless draw at Barnet - but admitted his players did not feel the same way.

Bees goalkeeper Graham Stack produced a fine save to keep out Terry Gornell's goalbound second-half strike while Jason Kennedy could have snatched a late winner for the visitors.

But Barnet also had their share of chances - with on-loan debutant Dani Lopez, who scored six goals in a 12-game stint at Aldershot earlier this season, a constant threat.

"I've got to salute the players, they were very resolute and they certainly deserved to take something from the match," Hill said.

"The lads are a little bit down and they shouldn't be. We didn't really threaten enough, which is disappointing, but the encouraging thing is we're working so hard as a team and that should see us good in the end.

"They know they can do better than this and I know they can do better because I see them in training every day. I'm pleased with the clean sheet and we more than coped with everything the opposition has thrown at us.

"They feel a bit down but I won't let the result have a negative impact on what we're trying to achieve at this club."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
