Davids send-off tops cursed week

By Football News



Barnet player-manager Edgar Davids was sent-off during their draw with Accrington Stanley, for fouling 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 in what finished in a 1-1 draw in their League Two clash.

Romuald Boco had put the visitors 1-0 up shortly after half-time, 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 giants Juventus, holds the role of joint manager at Underhill alongside Mark Robson.
