Barnet continue without Bira Dembele against Leyton Orient

Barnet will again be without the suspended Bira Dembele for Saturday's visit of Sky Bet League Two rivals Leyton Orient.

The defender will serve the second game of his three-match ban for a red card in the recent defeat against Portsmouth.

Bondz N'Gala is likely to retain his place having stepped in for Dembele in the midweek draw with Morecambe, while Alex Nicholls and Jamie Stephens were also recalled for Tuesday's match.

Teenage midfielder Fumnaya Shomotun could be involved at some stage but Michael Gash, Gavin Hoyte and James Pearson are all still sidelined with long-term knee injuries.

Orient will be hoping Robbie Weir will have his red card from their 2-0 defeat to Plymouth rescinded on appeal.

The midfielder was sent off in the opening minute of Andy Edwards' first game in charge, while Jens Janse was also dismissed 14 minutes into his debut - although his red card has not be challenged.

Edwards will be sweating over the fitness of both Liam Kelly and Nigel Atangana after the pair were forced off with injuries on Tuesday night.

Atangana came on after 13 minutes but had to be replaced by Bournemouth loanee Harry Cornick just after the break.
