Barnet player-manager Davids sent off in Accrington draw

The Dutchman picked up a second yellow card for a foul on James Beattie, as the Underhill outfit earned a vital point to lift them out of the League Two relegation zone
Barnet player-manager Edgar Davids was sent off during Friday's 1-1 draw with Accrington Stanley, following a foul on ex-England striker James Beattie.

The Dutchman earned a second yellow card in the 86th minute after catching the former Everton forward - who was making his Accrington debut - with a late tackle.

Romuald Boco had put the visitors 1-0 up shortly after halftime, before Mark Byrne levelled from the penalty spot.

Davids' early exit brought an end to a bad week for the former Netherlands international, after he recently swore on live television.

The 39-year-old, who once starred for Italian giant Juventus, holds the role of joint manager at Underhill alongside Mark Robson.
