Barnet Mad previews tomorrow's League Two match at Underhill
Barnet are back home tomorrow afternoon after a run of four away games which have seen a variety of fortunes for the Bees. The Bees have only taken a single point from the last two league matches; a 2-2 draw at Rotherham United and a poor 4-2 defeat at Bradford City, while they have performed well over League Two form in the two cup performances; a valiant 3-2 defeat at Burnley in the Carling Cup and this week, a fine 3-1 win at Colchester United in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy. Izale McLeod has scored 3 goals on the road taking him onto 6 goals for the season and is currently the League Two top scorer. All the more disappointing then that he should blot his copybook by getting two yellow cards at Colchester which mean that he will miss the game tomorrow.
Fortunately for the Bees, Steve Kabba should be fit to return against Stanley and has scored twice in two substitute appearances, at Burnley and Colchester. Ricky Holmes, also in good form is likely to partner Kabba having scored in the two cup matches as well.
Barnet manager, Lawrie Sanchez has turned down an offer for winger, Mark Marshall, reportedly from Charlton Athletic, stating that it was well below the value that the club has placed on the former Swindon Town winger. Meanwhile, the one month contracts of Jason Price and Ryan Watts have been cancelled though it has been reported that Price has been made an offer by the club.Watts, who previously played for Harrow Borough, has been unfortunate to have been injured throughout his short term contract.
Barnet also welcomed back key central defender, Darren Dennehy, who came on as a late substitute at Colchester and could be in the squad for the Accrington game. Recent signing from Peterborough, Exodus Geohaghon, made his first start against the League One side and could start tomorrow as Anwar Uddin has picked up a slight knock. Also missing tomorrow is midfield player, Tommy Fraser who is out through concussion.
The Bees have taken just 2 points from the last 4 league games after winning the opening game at Morecambe and will be looking to get back to winning ways tomorrow against an Accrington side 2 places and 2 points above the Bees. Accrington won 2-1 last Saturday at home to Burton Albion. Barnet’s side tomorrow could look something like this;
