Barnet summer signing Aaron McLean says that his new club can be in among the teams at the top of the league, but that they must find a ruthless streak first.
McLean has played Premier League football with Hull City in the past and signed for the Bees on a short-term deal in the summer, after being released by Bradford City at the end of the season.
The 32-year-old feels he has already seen enough from his new team-mates that suggests they can be challenging at the business end of the table come the end of the season.
The Bees, managed by Martin Allen, scored three goals for the first time since gaining promotion on Saturday, when they came from behind to beat Teddy Sheringham’s Stevenage side at the Hive.
Following the game the striker spoke with Times Series.
He said: “Realistically we have a chance of being in that top group of teams. It is the consistency that we must find.
“The teams that get out of this league are the teams who are consistent and when you can’t win a game, you ensure that you don’t lose it.
“That is the ruthless streak that we are craving at the moment.”
Martin Allen’s side currently sit n 21st position in Sky Bet League Two, having accrued seven points from eight league games.
The League Two outfit have won twice, drawn once and lost five games so far in this campaign.
