Plymouth Argyle v Barnet - Preview
Barnet head coach Edgar Davids insists the Bees will be travelling to Plymouth Argyle to win tomorrow but added a draw at Home Park "is a bigger problem" for the Pilgrims.
Plymouth, who are bottom of the division, have won just one out of their last six League Two matches and are four points below Barnet in the table.
“If they draw it is a bigger problem for them than it is for us,” Davids said. “We will be going there to win but at the end of the day we are playing away from home.
“We always want to have three points but you look at the table and they need the points more than we do. We want to take the three points to create a gap but if it is not possible then we settle for a point.”
A header from Jake Hyde and a first Barnet strike for Dani Lopez sealed victory over the Shrimpers at Underhill on Tuesday.
Hyde has netted ten goals for the Bees this season and is the club’s top scorer. He admits Saturday’s game will be “massive” for Barnet.
He said: “It will be a hard place to go and it will be a real fight. We will get back onto the training ground and prepare properly for it. It is a massive game. Hopefully we can go there and get the three points.”
With just nine points separating ten sides at the bottom of League Two, victories are becoming more important for every team.
Davids believes the pressure on clubs attempting to stay in the league is no different to those chasing promotion at the top of the table.
He explained: “We are trying to win every game we have to because every game counts. The pressure we have is the same as those at the top of the table. It is not any less.
“The target is to be safe and then build for next season. The target was also to develop the youth structure and the structure of the club.
“We wanted to develop the way we play also. It is hard though. We started with almost minus three points. We have taken big steps but don’t forget where we came from.
“It is still hard to survive but we will do our best and we will give everything to stay in this league.”
The Bees will go to Plymouth without John Oster due to a hamstring injury.
Craig Beattie is also unlikely to feature after tweaking his hamstring against Rochdale, although when asked if the Scottish international was likely to travel Davids replied “you never know”.
Ricky Holmes, Liam O’Brien and Steve Kabba remain long-term absentees and will be out for the rest of the campaign.
