Yeovil Town will (hopefully!) travel to Barnet, as the three times rearranged fixture takes place at the Hive on Tuesday evening.

Postponed due to poor weather conditions on multiple occasions, Mark Cooper’s side travel to North West London on the back of a positive week, having picked up four points against play-off sides in the last seven days.

Mark Cooper’s thoughts

Commenting after Saturday’s draw with Chesterfield, Cooper said; “We’ve got four or five who are out on their feet in there, that we could really do with resting.

“We are short of players and the ability to rotate, a lot down to the amount of loans we’ve got.

“It would be nice to give one or two of the players, certainly in midfield, a bit of a breather.”

Team news

Matt Worthington was the most notable absentee against Chesterfield as he came down with an illness overnight. He’ll be hoping he’ll have recovered in time to be involved against the Bees.

Scott Pollock and Reo Griffiths are still en route to full fitness so it remains to be seen if they’ll be involved at the Hive.

On Saturday afternoon, Jordan Stevens looked to take a small knock before being substituted, so that may impact his involvement.

A foot in the opposition camp

Under the stewardship of former Wealdstone boss Dean Brennan, Barnet have shown consistent signs of improvement, culminating in their strong start to this campaign. However, recent weeks have seen the Bees come off the boil a little, wine g just one of their last three league games.

Amongst the squad at Barnet is former Yeovil Town midfielder Dale Gorman, who starred for the Glovers last season. He is currently struggling with an injury and could miss out against his former employer.

Have we met before? 

The two sides last met in an early season encounter at Huish Park. Despite the Glovers being on top for vast portions of the game, it was the Bees that completed a smash and grab victory over Yeovil. 

The most notable encounter in recent years came during the 19/20 play-offs, as Barnet ran out 2-0 winners against a Yeovil side managed by Darren Sarll. 

Our last win at the Hive came a season later, as Yeovil were 4-1 victors thanks to goals from Billy Sass-Davies, Jimmy Smith, Rhys Murphy and Josh Neufville.
