Barnet manager Mark Stimson hopes his side's goalless FA Cup clash with Charlton can fill his players with confidence for their league campaign. Charlton dominated possession throughout the first-round tie at Underhill but could not find a way past the Bees rearguard. Stimson said: "Hopefully this gives the players a hell of a lot of confidence. "We were playing a good Charlton side and if we repeat this performance we'll start getting the results in the league. "Sometimes the cup can be a distraction but we came out and played really well. "The boys gave everything and they deserved to get a draw. We knew we were playing a side that were in good form. "We had our problems, but real credit to the players for holding out. We had to make sure we were strong at the back after our last game against Stevenage." "I'm so pleased for the keeper and back four to get a clean sheet. We stayed strong and to be fair we could have won it on the break in the last 10 minutes.
