WEYMOUTH boss Brian Stock had few complaints after 10-man Barnet beat the Terras 2-0, claiming his side “could’ve been out there all day and never scored”.

Vanarama National League bottom side Barnet were well organised and took the lead in the 34th minute when Ben Richards-Everton poked home.

Anthony Wordsworth was sent off for a lunging tackle on Ollie Harfield, but the left-back’s misjudged header set Tomi Adeloye into a 70-yard sprint and finish, nutmegging Ethan Ross.

Calvin Brooks spurned Weymouth’s only two clear sights of goal on another bleak afternoon at the Bob Lucas Stadium – in keeping with 3-0 losses to Yeovil and Aldershot.

Stock’s men also wasted the opportunity to win three successive league games for the first time since December 2019, following eye-catching wins at Maidenhead and Woking.

But Stock blamed playing two games in three days on the defeat after making four changes to his side.

“That highlights everything this league is about,” he told Echosport.

“I think being able to play two games in three days is crazy.

“I’ve tried to freshen it up as much as I could. In fairness to Barnet they were strong, physical, compact and we’ve struggled to find a way to break through that.

“There’s a few tired lads and there is a big demand on a few of those to play two 90 minutes in three days.

“It’s important we remember what brought us success with two great results and performances.

“We could’ve been out there all day and never scored. We weren’t productive, we didn’t put the ball in the box, didn’t get our shots off.

“We took too many touches. We weren’t at our best. There were many errors but there was a huge demand.”

Stock gave few positives when reviewing an off-par attacking performance.

“It was a poor display,” he said.

“We kept the ball well, especially when they went down to 10 men.

“They defended quite deep and denied us a lot of space. When it mattered, that final quality and delivery just wasn’t there.”

Commenting on Harfield’s error, Stock added: “He’s disappointed. We tried to attack and put bodies forward.

“We left Ollie back and he’s lost the ball in the wind, headed it into (Adeloye’s) path, he’s gone through and calmly slotted it home.”

Stock was also in no doubt as to the legitimacy of Wordsworth’s red card, with the Barnet midfielder appearing puzzled as to his dismissal for a sliding lunge on Harfield.

He said: “You can’t do that these days. He’s gone in with two feet and I don’t think anyone can complain about that.

“He didn’t make contact but the intent and way he’s gone in it’s a definite red card.”

He added: “We’ve been here before a few times, this is what this league’s all about.

“We go away to Sutton now, which is going to be a very tough game. We need to pick ourselves up, remember what’s got us success over the last couple of games and put this result firmly behind us.”
