Barnet assistant head coach Ulrich Landvreugd says the Bees will field their strongest possible side against Concord Rangers tomorrow.
Barnet entertain the Skrill South side at The Hive in The FA Cup fourth qualifying round and are expected to win the tie.
However, it is a competition that is famous for upsets and Landvreugd believes games in the FA Cup are “special”.
He said: “We have to prepare as if it is a normal match because we want to go as far as possible in the competition.
“We don’t want to take any risks, so it will be the strongest team we can put out.”
No matter which starting XI is picked there will be a number of absentees. Jake Hyde remains injured and Curtis Weston is still recovering from the gashed leg he sustained against Wrexham.
Edgar Davids is suspended but Andy Yiadom could return to the side after his three-match ban was completed last weekend.
When asked which players were likely to return from injury, Landvreugd explained: “We hope to see Luke Gambin back in training this week but he will probably not be ready for the game.
“Harry (Crawford) was a bit unlucky with an injury but should be ok to play and Elliot (Johnson) should begin training this week. I am expecting at least two players back for the game.”
