Barnet have been dealt a blow as they prepare for their crucial League Two clash against Burton Albion, as top scorer Izale McLeod will not start the game due to injury.

In his message to the supporters on the club website, Martin Allen confirmed the striker will not begin the match.

McLeod has netted 22 times for the Bees this season but has scored only once in his last 15 appearances.

The Bees boss did confirm there are no other fresh injuries going into Saturday’s must-win fixture.
