Match Preview

No new worries for Cobblers Northampton have no new problems for the visit of Barnet. Midfielder Arron Davies is still nursing a groin problem while goalkeeper Shane Higgs (Achilles) and defender Nana Ofori-Twumasi (knee) remain long-term absentees. Therefore, boss Aidy Boothroyd will pick from the same pool of players. He must decide whether to make changes to his starting XI, with Adebayo Akinfenwa waiting for a recall and midfielders Andy Holt, Greg Kaziboni and Ryan Gilligan also alongside the club's leading scorer on the bench against Southend last weekend. The likes of Jake Robinson, Michael Built, Ashley Corker, Tadhg Purcell, Paul Turnbull, Byron Webster and Nat Wedderburn have yet to get a look-in since Boothroyd's appointment at the end of November. Most of them played in a practice match this week and the Town boss will decide whether anyone caught his eye enough to be included in the squad on Saturday. Ahead of the game against one of their relegation rivals, Boothroyd said: "The games against the teams who are in and around us in the table are important and Barnet are one of those teams. The media like to build games like this up and call it a must-win game, but it really isn't. We want to win it but a must-win game is when it gets down to the last game of the season and you have to win. We've got 20 games to go and we need to keep calm and carry on." Arsenal youngster Sead Hajrovic is in line to make his Barnet debut. The Swiss full-back has moved to Underhill on a one-month loan deal to boost boss Lawrie Sanchez's depleted defence. With Danny Senda ruled out for the season with a dislocated kneecap, Michael Hector deputised at right-back at Accrington last weekend, but Hajrovic's arrival means he can now move back to centre-half. Sanchez is unlikely to make any other changes following the impressive 3-0 win against Stanley. Striker Steve Kabba remains a long-term absentee with a knee problem so Ricky Holmes again partners 19-goal top scorer Izale McLeod in attack. Fit-again winger Mauro Vilhete could make the bench after signing a new contract earlier this week.

Match Report

Bees pile misery on Cobblers Ricky Holmes hit a second-half winner as Barnet maintained their recent revival with a crucial 2-1 victory at fellow strugglers Northampton. The recalled Adebayo Akinfenwa gave the basement side the lead at the interval with his ninth goal of the season after 10 minutes, getting the final touch on Ben Harding's inswinging corner which had caught out Bees `keeper Dean Brill. Barnet, however, could have been ahead as early as the first minute but Town's on-loan stopper Chris Weale smothered Izale McLeod's point-blank effort after he raced on to Brill's long clearance. Yet it took Barnet just three second-half minutes to get on level terms. Cobblers failed to clear following a neat move and when the ball came back to Mark Byrne he curled a first-time effort around Weale and into the far corner of the net. Akinfenwa should have restored Northampton's advantage in the 55th minute but he could only head straight at Brill from Lewis Young's cross. McLeod missed a sitter at the other end when he rounded Weale only to see Ben Tozer head off the line. But the visitors won it in the 69th minute when they opened up the home defence again and Holmes beat Weale at his near post with a snap-shot from 15 yards.
