History of the Forest Green Rovers v Barnet fixture

Barnet face a trip to Forest Green Rovers at The Lawn on Saturday evening, looking to break their duck against the hosts. While the majority of previous matches have ended up drawn, a win has yet to be registered by Bees.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in January 2003, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4 - 2 thriller, in a Trophy match.
