PREVIEW: Barnet (H)

access_time 3 years ago

Justin Edinburgh’s men come in to the fixture in good form having not yet tasted defeat in the opening ten National League games.

The unbeaten run was stretched to ten games after James Alabi’s injury time equaliser after he came on the bench snatched a well-deserved point for Orient at FC Halifax Town.

John Still’s Barnet also come in to the clash in good form, having won all of their previous five fixtures.

Last time out, The Bees defeated Maidenhead United as Josh Walker’s fourth minute strike was enough to secure the points and see the North London side up to ninth in the league table.


Edinburgh is likely to have a similar squad to select from tomorrow as he did last time out against FC Halifax Town.

In his pre-match interview Edinburgh revealed that James Brophy made a return to full-training mid-week, while Sam Ling took part in some of the outdoor session.

The O’s Dale Gorman will be boosted by the return of Dale Gorman who is back from international duty with Northern Ireland U21, where his side defeated Spain on Tuesday evening.
