Barnet boss Mark Stimson admits a few "home truths" were told at Underhill following the recent 7-0 drubbing at Crewe.
The Bees players bounced back by coming from behind to earn a battling point against Bury last weekend and will be looking to go one better against Cheltenham on Saturday.
"Crewe wasn't acceptable but the players have taken on board a few home truths and reacted in the right way," said Stimson.
Mark Marshall, who was on target against Bury with a fine curling free-kick, hopes his strike is a sign of things to come.
"It kick starts our season, and it showed character," he said.
