Barnet have signed Plymouth Argyle winger, Yannick Bolasie on a month's loan. He will wear the number 30 shirt. Bolasie is a product of the youth system at Rushden & Diamonds and is the son of a Congolese international. He has played 24 times for Maltese Premier League club, Floriano before joining Argyle for a nominal fee in the face of opposition from Austrian First Division club, Sturm Graz and German Bundesliga club, Hoffenheim. Bolasie, who is 19, can play on either wing and is expected to start at Accrington tomorrow.

Also expected to start tomorrow, is centre back, Gary Breen who missed the match at Dagenham & Redbridge through injury. However, Ismail Yakubu is likely to miss out through injury after coming off at half time last Saturday and Michael Leary is suspended. There is no news yet about whether or not the club are going to re-sign Michael Townsend, whose loan from Cheltenham Town ended last Saturday. Abu Ogogo who joined the Bees for the rest of the season from Arsenal is not expected to be fit for the trip to the North West.

Joe Devera is likely to move across to the centre of the defence to partner Breen with Max Porter probably coming in at right back. Nicky Deverdics or Tommy Black are in line to partner Neal Bishop in the central midfield though there could be a place for Joe Tabiri back on loan from Lewes.
