Exeter City v Barnet - Preview

First published in Sport

Barnet will be looking to extend their winning streak in League Two to three matches as they take on Exeter City.

The Grecians suffered a Boxing Day defeat at home to Oxford United but that was just their second loss in the last eight matches.

Davids is anticipating another strong test for his side but insists the Bees are capable of causing another upset away from home.

“I’m expecting a lot from them. They are pushing for the playoffs so they need to win their games and you are focused on getting the points.

“But we also need to win to build on the result at Gillingham and to stay out of the bottom two.

“It is a long drive and they are a good team. It was a hard game (against Gillingham) on a wet pitch and we had to fight to get the three points.

“We have little time to recover and it is a long drive to Exeter but we will have to continue to fight for all the points.”

Clovis Kamdjo missed the win at Gillingham due to injury while Steve Kabba, Ismail Kamara and Liam O’Brien remain long-term absentees.

When asked if there are any other injury concerns, Davids answered: “There are a couple of knocks but it is difficult for us because we have played two matches back-to-back. So we will have to be careful and will see what the damage is.”
