Barnet top scorer Jake Hyde is set to miss the Bees' game against Aldershot Town
Barnet’s top scorer Jake Hyde is set to miss this evening’s game against Aldershot Town due to a hamstring injury.
The striker limped off against Lincoln City on Saturday and will be absent as the Bees make the short trip to the Recreation Ground.
Aldershot sit 22nd in the table but have already wiped out the ten point deduction they were handed before the start of the campaign.
Barnet head coach Edgar Davids is expecting a close fought contest against the Shots.
He said: “They are a solid team and their place in the table doesn’t reflect how good they are. They only have three points but they have done very well and are a very decent side.”
The Bees will look to bounce back from their disappointing 1-1 draw with Lincoln at the weekend.
Winger Keanu Marsh-Brown scored an outstanding goal against the Imps and he said it is important the Bees claim all three points this evening.
“We need to bounce back,” the 21-year-old explained. “We have to look forward to the next game where we will hopefully get three points.
“I think we need to improve all-round the pitch, we need to take more of our chances and be more clinical in front of goal. We also need to tidy up the sloppy parts of our game.
“It was disappointing as we need to tidy up things and win games and look to get promoted to League Two. We need to use our experience and get the three points.”
Marsh-Brown joined Hyde on England C duty last week and said he enjoyed the experience of working with Paul Fairclough.
“He is a great manager and knows how to work with young players. He gives everyone the chance, has a lot of experience and is a very good manager.
“It was a great trip. Unfortunately we lost but it was a great experience and I got 90 minutes. It was good to be playing international football and with different players.
“There is a game coming up in November so hopefully I’ll be involved in that.”
