Not just about Kabba - Allen

Manager Martin Allen insists Barnet`s 4-1 victory over Burton was a team performance, despite Steve Kabba scoring all of the Bees' goals at the Pirelli Stadium.

Albion had led through Sam Winnall`s strike from the edge of the box, but Kabba equalised after latching on to a long clearance and he then put Barnet ahead with an 18-yard effort of his own. Kabba completed his first-ever hat-trick with a penalty before bagging his fourth from close range.

Allen said: "I don't really want to single any players out because that would be unfair. We all stand together and fight together - that's what got us the four goals."

He added: "Everybody made a contribution and I'm sure Steve Kabba will understand it when I say that my greatest respect is for the input from everybody.

"That is what we've been working on since I got here and this result is great for all the players involved, not just Steve."

"It was a disappointment to go behind to the only shot Burton had, but all credit to the players, they showed tremendous resolve and resilience and all we can do now is keep showing more of the same in our remaining games.

"What matters most to me is that we bring some happiness back to the club because it's been a horrid time."

Barnet are now just two points behind Burton in the fight to avoid relegation, boss Paul Peschisolido describing the result as a blow to the club`s pride.

He said: "We were poor from start to finish, even allowing for going into the lead. We had no fluidity, we had no energy, we didn't track back and defensively we were shambolic.

"It was an absolutely terrible performance that left us with nothing positive to take from it."
