Kabba blow for Bees
Accrington boss John Coleman has no new injury concerns for the home clash with relegation-threatened Barnet.
Midfielder Charlie Barnett, who enjoyed an impressive start to the season before injuries curtailed his progress, returned to Stanley`s squad for the goalless draw at Shrewsbury on Easter Monday.
Fellow midfielder Ray Putterill is also nearing full fitness and defender Kevin Long, who has missed a large chunk of the season with a broken toe, looks set to be be among the substitutes again.
Three points for Stanley could potentially confirm their place in the top seven with one game still to play.
Coleman said: "If we would have won three or four of the draws we've had away from home we'd be comfortably up."
Barnet are without Steve Kabba. The 11-goal striker was this week ruled out of the Bees' final two games of the season with a knee injury.
Loanee Jack Midson, who was ineligible to face his parent club Oxford last week, will start alongside Izale McLeod in attack.
Sam Deering, who is also on loan from Oxford, returns to the midfield.
Full-back Matt Parsons is sidelined with an Achilles injury and joins goalkeeper Jake Cole (knee) and centre-half Anwar Uddin (ankle) in the treatment room.
Defender Darren Dennehy, who has been out since September with a foot ligament injury, is back in training but is not expected to figure again this season.
Ryan treble stings Bees
Jimmy Ryan`s hat-trick sealed a play-off spot for Accrington and left Barnet needing victory on the final day of the season to have any chance of preserving their six-year stay in the Football League.
The Bees battled hard for their League Two survival at the Crown Ground but a 3-1 defeat leaves them two points adrift of Lincoln - the only side still within reach.
Meanwhile, Stanley, guaranteed fifth place, can look forward to their play-off semis and will be dreaming of an Old Trafford final.
In Stanley's first real attack after four minutes, midfielder Ryan made space for himself and unleashed a 25-yard strike which nestled into the bottom corner.
However, the Reds only held onto their lead for three minutes. Jack Midson played a ball into the area, the Stanley defence failed to clear and Mark Marshall pounced and tucked the ball into the far corner of Alex Cisak's goal.
The visitors upped the pace after the break as they forced a succession of corners but it was Stanley, unbeaten in 11 at home prior to the clash, who regained the lead against the run of play in the 56th minute.
Ryan's 20-yard free-kick taking a deflection off the Barnet wall and wrong-footing keeper Sam Walker.
Barnet continued to press - with nine corners in the opening 20 second-half minutes - but again Ryan broke their hearts shortly after the hour.
The former Shrewsbury man got the ball on the edge of the area and Walker was only able to get his fingertips to the ball and help it into the bottom corner.
