Forest Green Rovers v Barnet - Preview
12:39pm Tuesday 25th February 2014 in Sport
Barnet travel to Forest Green Rovers tonight looking to extend their winning run in the Skrill Premier to five matches.
The Bees are one of the form teams in the division and Saturday’s 1-0 win against Wrexham lifted Ulrich Landvreugd and Dick Schreuder’s side to fourth in the table.
A victory tonight would move Barnet into third place and Landvreugd is confident ahead of the trip.
“Both teams are doing very well,” he told the club website. “They are a tough opponent but I am looking forward to it. We are confident and are going there to win.”
Spanish duo Roberto Casabella (knee) and Luisma Villa (ankle) will miss the trip and, while Graham Stack will travel to the game, he is unlikely to be included in the squad as he continues to recover from a calf problem.
Jack Saville should return to the side after missing the last two matches with a hip injury.
Harry Crawford and Luke Gambin have both returned to training after their respective injuries but are unlikely to feature.
The match will be the Bees’ fourth in ten days and Landvreugd has hinted there could be changes to the Barnet side.
He said: “Everybody is knocking on the door and that is a good sign. You can knock but not be sharp but the guys coming into the side deserve it and they are giving us the chance to rotate.
“We don’t always want to do it but it is sometimes necessary to give a player a half a game or a games rest.”
