Former Plymouth Argyle keeper Graham Stack praised for part in Barnet revival
FORMER Argyle goalkeeper Graham Stack has been praised for the part he has played in Barnet's recent improved results.
The Bees had a terrible start to the season but their form has picked up of late, winning six and drawing three of their last 12 games in League Two, and moving up to 21st in the table.
Stack (pictured), 31, has been outstanding between the posts for Barnet.
He kept a third clean sheet in the last four games when the Bees won 2-0 at home to Paul Sturrock's Southend United on Tuesday.

Barnet striker Jake Hyde, who opened the scoring against Southend with his 10th goal of the season, believes they have built their recent success on their solid defence.
Hyde said: "We are really solid at the back. Graham Stack is massively influential for us and the back four has been brilliant. It is certainly showing in our results.
"There is a lot of self-belief in the side at the moment and we go into every game thinking we are going to win it. That is a massive plus."
Stack made six starts for Argyle at the start of the 2008/09 season before falling out of favour – under Sturrock.
So impressive has Stack been, he was rewarded by Barnet last month with a long-term contract until the summer of 2016.
