Match preview: Pools live on BT Sport against Barnet

25 February 2021

Hartlepool United will be live in front of the cameras as they face Barnet FC on BT Sport. 5.20pm kick-off.

Pools will be looking to build on Tuesday night's draw against Wrexham where Dave Challinor's men were unable to find the back of the net despite a dominant display. A win on Saturday will put Pools joint second depending on other results.

Barnet currently sit 22nd in The National League Table. Their current record stands at played 21, won three, drawn three and lost 15. The North London side were beaten 5-1 away to King's Lynn on Tuesday night with the Bees only recording one win since Pools last faced them in the 0-0 draw back in November 2019.

Since Hartlepool played at The Hive there has been a change of managers. Tim Flowers was appointed first team manager in December after the sacking of Peter Beadle.

The two sides have met 27 times in their history with Pools winning, drawing seven and losing eleven. Pools won this tie at The Vic last season with two goals from Nicke Kabamba sealing all three points.
