Sanchez blows fuse over shock Barnet sacking

Lawrie Sanchez is shocked to have been replaced at Barnet by Martin Allen.

He accused Underhill chiefs of double standards for handing the reins to Allen exactly a year after they slammed him for walking out to join Notts County.

Sanchez said: "I'd like to express my disappointment at the lack of loyalty.

"It's the same lack of loyalty the club accused Martin of showing when quitting Barnet last season.

"When I took over from him, the club were three points adrift of safety with four games left.

"However, thanks to a fantastic effort from the players, staff and myself, Barnet took seven points from those last four games.

"Now, exactly a year since my appointment, the club are three points clear of the relegation zone with three games left. I felt that recent performances would see the club stay up."
