Kleanthous eager for Bees progress

PA Sport

Barnet chairman Tony Kleanthous is confident the club can avoid their traditional final-day relegation battle this season - despite currently propping up League Two again.

Mark Robson's young side have picked up just one point from their four games but Kleanthous has hinted he is ready to add some experience in the loan market.

"I am convinced that come the end of the season the league table will look considerably different from how it does today," he told the club website.

"I am confident that the hard work we are all putting in will be rewarded.

"Understandably the poor start to the season has created anxiety amongst our supporters and I want to directly communicate to you all that despite the results to date I believe that we will soon be able to turn the corner and so bring to an end this cycle of battling relegation that has been our fate for the last few seasons.

"I can say this with confidence, simply because I know that we now have a larger budget than ever before, a budget that will allow us to sign the quality of player who'll add the experience and ability that will make for an improved squad."
