McAllister returns to Exeter

Last updated : 02 January 2010 By Jaybee

Barnet's loan striker, Craig McAllister has returned to Exeter City after his loan period with the Bees was not extended by the club. The former woking and Stevenage Borough striker made 5 appearances for the Bees, including one as a substitute but failed to score during his time at Underhill. His last match was the recent home match with Northampton Town.

McAllister impressed many fans at Underhill with his bustling style of play and many were surprised when he was substituted against the Cobblers after being one of the team's best performers in that game.

The fact that his loan wasn't extended gives the impression that Bees' manager, Ian Hendon has his eyes on signing a new striker to get the Bees back amongst the goals and the points in te New Year.

Meanwhile, Nicky Deverdics faces a spell out through injury as his ankle has been put in plaster after injuring it in training.

Bees' strikers, Elliott Charles and Luke Medley are due to return to the club following loans at Havant & waterlooville and Woking respectively, and decisions will need to be made soon about two Barnet loanees, Yannick Bolasie and Dean Sinclair whose loans have come to an end.
