Barnet manager Mark Robson hailed his side after picking up only their second point of the season.

The struggling Bees drew 0-0 with the Millers, who ended the game with 10 men after Alex Revell was sent off for a foul on David Stephens.

“I think that was arguably our best performance so far this season. I thought we controlled the game and in the first half in particular we were excellent and perhaps deserved to go in ahead at half time.

“I think in general there were a lot more runs in behind the defence, a lot more shots on goal, better passing and better movement. I was really proud of the performance.

“There were one or two who haven’t been playing recently but they took their chance with both hands. There were some really good performances.”
