TOWN goalkeeper Ashlee Jones thought he and his team-mates proved a point with their draw against leaders Dartford at the weekend.

The Scholars, who are just above the drop zone, certainly made a mockery of their lowly league position as they came within seconds of beating the title contenders.

Jones said: "All in all we did well and worked hard.

"We were obviously the underdogs at the start of the game but we proved a lot of people wrong."

The Scholars were two up in the game with just over five minutes remaining.

Dartford managed to score twice late on to rescue a draw, but Jones believes Bar should have collected more than one point.

"It should have been three, if we had stayed more disciplined at the end of the game we could have won," he said.

"Steve (Browne) told us things to do when he brought substitutes on and people just weren't listening."

Jones was applauded by both sets of fans after an accomplished display of handling.

"I thought I did well but I criticise my game more than look at the good parts and I kicked a few off," he said.

Of his side's relegation fight, he added: "I think we will get out of this battle at the end."

Potters Bar entertain lowly Essex rivals Wivenhoe Town at Parkfield tonight (Tuesday).
