Former Barnet boss Mark Stimson admits he is "gutted" to have been sacked as manager after the 2-1 defeat to Aldershot.

Dan Harding received a gift from Bees striker Izale McLeod to fire the Shots ahead on 35 minutes and Wade Small pounced from close range six minutes later. McLeod made amends for his earlier mistake on 54 minutes as Barnet rallied to set up a tense finish but Aldershot clung on and Stimson received his marching orders.

"I am very disappointed. It was a very disappointing result, especially in the first-half. I felt we came out and made something of it in the second-half but it was not to be," said Stimson.

"We need to focus on Barnet Football Club, getting enough points to stay in this league and I wish Barnet Football Club all the best in the future.

"Whoever takes over will be getting an honest bunch of players. The chairman made the decision and I am gutted but I have to accept it. The chairman puts everything he can into the club."
