Burton Albion v Barnet - Preview
11:28am Friday 25th January 2013 in Sport
Barnet will return to League Two action tomorrow looking to extend their unbeaten run away from home to four matches.
The Bees have claimed seven points from their last three games on the road despite facing three sides in the top six.
Edgar Davids’ men weren’t in action last weekend due to their match at home to Fleetwood Town being postponed but the Brewers did play and suffered a 1-0 loss against Northampton.
New signing Harry Crawford is likely to be included in the Bees squad for the game and Andy Iro should return alongside David Stephens in defence despite being stretchered off against Rotherham.
Ishmail Kamara and Collins John are expected to remain absent while Steve Kabba continues his long-term recovery from a knee injury.
Jon Nurse will also be unavailable as he serves the final game of his three-match suspension.
The last time to two sides met the Bees, thanks to a Ricky Holmes hat-trick, completed a 3-2 win over the Brewers at Underhill.
Barnet’s last trip to the Pirelli Stadium was a memorable one for Bees fans.
It was the final game of last season and Barnet knew a victory meant they would remain in League Two.
Mark Byrne had put the Bees ahead but Jacques Maghoma soon levelled the contest.
Crucially, Calvin Zola smashed a penalty well over the crossbar in the opening period and a Mark Hughes half volley in the second half secured victory and survival.
