Bristol Rovers v Barnet - Preview
10:00am Friday 1st February 2013 in Sport
Barnet will hope to have Edgar Davids and top scorer Jake Hyde available for selection for this evening’s match at Bristol Rovers.
The duo missed the Bees 1-0 defeat against Burton Albion last Saturday due to Illness and injury respectively but both should be fit for selection.
Curtis Weston faces a late fitness test for the Bees and is a doubt for the match.
Only a single point separates the two sides in the League Two table and Barnet assistant head coach Ulrich Landvreugd insists the Bees players will go to the Memorial Stadium confident of getting a good result.
He said: “Every match is important but this is a six point game. We will work towards Bristol Rovers and we will prepare as usually.
“Hopefully we can get a result there and we go into every game confident of getting a result.
“We can see the team growing and our possession game is good. We just have to create a few more chances and that is our next job.”
The Bees have almost a fully fit squad but Steve Kabba continues his rehabilitation from a knee injury and remains a long-term absentee.
The Bees have a good recent record against the Pirates and have not lost in the last three meetings between the two sides.
When the two teams met earlier in the season a Ricky Holmes goal wasn’t enough and the points were shared in a 1-1 draw.
