His double earned the Westleigh Park outfit a share of the spoils in the National League contest.

And it came less than a month after he was hauled off on 30 minutes in the 4-0 thrashing at Bromley.

Bradbury reckons Robinson’s character is symptomatic of the spirit running through his squad.

And the boss revealed his troops hailed the midfielder when he returned to the changing room after stinging the Bees in stoppage-time.

Bradbury said: ‘I am really pleased for Andreas Robinson. He has come through a tough time recently.

‘I took him off after 30 minutes at Bromley but he has shown what terrific character he has by bouncing back in this fashion. The whole dressing room applauded him when he came in.’

Shaquile Coulthirst had twice given the Bees the lead – breaking the deadlock on 12 minutes.

Keeper Ben Dudzinski had to be at his best to prevent further damage before Robinson equalised on 70 minutes.

Coulthirst then put Barnet back in front but Robinson had the final word – curling a free-kick home in time added on.

Bradbury added: ‘We showed again we have spirit in abundance and came away with another excellent point.

‘We have given another fancied team a good game.

‘We had to dig deep again at times but our desire and work-rate was outstanding.

‘This squad has a terrific never-say-die attitude.’
