Edgar Davids believes Barnet were given “a lesson in effectiveness” by Chesterfield who left Underhill with a 2-0 victory.

Davids’ side controlled large parts of the game but goals from Jay O’Shea and Sam Togwell sealed the three points for the visitors.

They defeat leaves Barnet just two points above the drop zone and when asked if he felt the result was a fair reflection on the game, Davids replied: “Absolutely not but we definitely were given a lesson in effectiveness.

“If you have so many corners and you don’t convert one, then you can play for two days but you won’t score.

“In the first half we were the team that was playing and we didn’t give away too many chances.

“Then they only had half a shot and then they scored. That is the way football can be and they showed their effectiveness.”

He added: “If you have the better of the play then you think you can get something out of the game. If you are not sharp in the box though then you are not going to score.
