The struggling side beat Wycombe Wanderers 1-0 in the League Two clash after a late goal from Jake Hyde and a last-gasp save by Graham Stack.

A 6,000 strong crowd witnessed the dramatic day which saw Barnet climb out of the relegation zone before their final game at Northampton next week.

Player manager Edgar Davids said: "We couldn't have written it better today, but you have to be realistic.

"We still have a game next week but if we play with same intensity and the same determination we can make a good shot of staying in the league"

And chairman Tony Kleanthous shares his manager's hopes for salvation.

"It's in our hands. We've got to go to Northampton and get a result," he said.

"The boys fought for every ball today. They were playing with and you can't fault their spirit, commitment, determination or effort today.

"We're saying goodbye to the old place today, it's time to find a new beginning. Hopefully that will still in be in the Football League."

The Bees will move to The Hive in neighbouring Edgware next month, which has been their training ground.

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.
