Hughes missing for Bees
Barnet will be without Mark Hughes through suspension when they host Crewe.
The Irish midfielder starts a two-match ban after he was booked for the 10th time this season during last weekend's 4-1 win over Burton so Tommy Fraser could return to the starting line-up.
Southampton loanee Anthony Pulis is expected to miss out again with an Achilles injury while defenders Anwar Uddin (ankle) and Darren Dennehy, forward Ricky Holmes (both foot) and goalkeeper Jake Cole (knee) are still missing.
Jude Stirling was initially ruled out for three weeks with a calf strain prior to the Burton game but was a surprise inclusion in the starting XI and came through unscathed alongside Daniel Leach, who played his first game in six months after a foot injury.
Crewe boss Dario Gradi could name an unchanged team.
Gradi saw his side demolish Cheltenham 8-1 at Gresty Road last weekend.
However, Luke Murphy should be fit again after missing that game due to a groin problem and the midfielder will hope to force his way back into the starting line-up.
Ajay Leitch-Smith had hoped to return from the hamstring injury that has ruled him out of the last two matches but the striker appears to be losing his battle to be fit.
Crewe are six points adrift of the play-off with six games remaining and Gradi believes his side can still claim a coveted top-seven spot.
"We`ve got to keep going. Barnet will be as hard a game as we've got left and if we beat them, obviously we'll think we've got a great chance. We won't give up until it's mathematically impossible," said Gradi. "We've been talking about blooding some of the younger players but we won't put them in while we've still got a chance of promotion."
Bees on the rise
Barnet's resurgence under Martin Allen continued as goals from Daniel Leach and Izale McLeod beat Crewe 2-1 to make it two wins in three for the 10-men Bees.
Leach put the hosts ahead after 11 minutes, the Australian defender rising highest at the back post to head home Tommy Fraser's cross after Crewe had failed to deal with a Barnet corner.
The home side doubled their advantage in the 26th minute as the impressive Sam Deering released McLeod and the striker coolly slid the ball under the advancing Rhys Taylor in the Crewe goal.
Crewe rallied after McLeod's strike and pulled one back through top-scorer Clayton Donaldson on the stroke of half time.
The striker converted from the spot after referee Mark Brown waved away Barnet protests and pointed to the spot after Matthew Parsons handled a Matt Tootle cross.
Barnet may well have expected a Crewe onslaught after the break but it didn't materialise and instead it was the hosts who went closest with Mark Marshall curling just over in the 53rd minute.
Referee Brown again risked the wrath of the home fans a minute later as he turned down a penalty appeal after Mark Byrne's effort appeared to strike Crewe substitute Adam Dugdale on the arm.
Barnet goalkeeper Sam Walker did his best to spoil the day as he received two late yellow cards, the first for time wasting and the second for throwing the ball away, but luckily for the home fans the sending off had little impact on the game.
