Barnet have recalled young striker George Sykes from his loan spell with Farnborough.

Sykes was due to remain with the Yellows until the end of March but the Bees have brought him back to The Hive following an injury to Jake Hyde.

The-19-year-old has made four appearances for Barnet’s first team this season and spent time on loan at Bishop’s Stortford earlier in the campaign.

Jamal Lowe remains with Farnborough while Iffy Allen is out on loan at Redhill.

Barnet director Paul Fairclough was asked after Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Gateshead whether any of the loanees would return to the club, he said: “All three of them are young and inexperienced but sometimes that inexperience can mean they are fearless.

“I remember when Mauro (Vilhete) came into the side at 16, he was fearless. Sometimes those players who don’t have that fear can do something outrageous and they can be the players to bring in.

“So maybe a couple of those players will be brought in towards the end of the season.”
