Team News: Barnet v Pools

Dave Challinor has no new injury worries ahead of Saturday’s National League trip to face Barnet at The Hive (3pm kick-off).

Josh Hawkes returned to the substitutes’ bench for last weekend’s win over Stockport County and the midfielder is set to be part of the squad again for this Saturday’s game.

Defender Kenton Richardson is now back in contention after ankle trouble, while Fraser Kerr is getting closer to a return following a recent spell on the sidelines with a back problem.

Adam Bale (knee), Luke James (groin), Michael Raynes (thigh) and Luke Williams (hamstring) are all still missing and won’t be available to face The Bees.

Barnet boss Darren Currie could hand a debut to midfielder Xander McBurnie after he joined the club last week following a spell playing in Sweden.

Currie has been on the hunt for new recruits following Jack Taylor’s recent departure to Peterborough United and McBurnie’s arrival will certainly prove a boost.
