Barnet boss Darren Currie is pleased with his side’s preparations ahead of their big play-off match away at Yeovil Town this Saturday.

The Bees snuck into the play-off places from 11th when the National League was concluded on a points-per-game basis and now Currie is hoping they take the big opportunity in front of them.

Speaking to the club website, the manager said: “I’ve really enjoyed being back on the grass with the boys, their application’s been spot on. You can sense that they appreciate the size of the task in front of us, but are obviously looking forward to it as well.

“The mood’s been really good, I’ve enjoyed being back around the team we’ve managed to get some good work into them as well.”

Currie had initially been focusing on making sure his players were fit and up to the task when they travel to Huish park this weekend. Now he is working on a gameplan.

“When we do some of our endurance based work and some of our pre-season work, the majority of it’s working around the ball as well because that’s the game we;re in as well,” he said. “What we’ve tried to do in the first week or ten days is open their legs and lungs up and get some fitness work into them again and then the nearer we get to the game, it shortens and sharpens and the tactical information we get into them as well.”

One player who is hoping to play a big part in the game is David Tutonda, who wants his teammates to leave the game with Yeovil without any regrets.

“He (Currie) wanted to get firing as quick as possible, so did we,” he said/.”His attention to detail in the training sessions has been second to none, so we just want to get going now and see what happens.

“The way we ended before lockdown we were confident we’d make the play-offs. So now we are here, with have the opportunity to go up now, so now we need to push. We need to make sure that we work hard enough and don’t have any regrets.”

Tutonda believes that no fans in the grounds will take some of the pressure off and hopes it will make his job easier.

“For me personally I think it is probably easier playing without a crowd,” he said. “I don’t think there will be any excuses from our camp, it’ll be pure hard work and hopefully, we can get the job done.”
