Temporary manager Graham Turner is likely to stick with the same Hereford XI that sprang a shock at Chesterfield last weekend when his side host Barnet.

Turner has no new injury or suspension problems ahead of the clash and the Bulls will go into the encounter on a real high after their 2-1 success at Saltergate.

Exciting attacking loan signings Lewis Young and Jake Jervis both started and can expect to do so again, with fellow new boy Astrit Ajdarevic still waiting for his first appearance in a Hereford shirt.

Birmingham defender Dan Preston this week extended his stay with the club by a further 28 days and he can again expect to be on the bench against a Barnet side who have struggled for consistency of late.

Barnet will hand a late fitness test to striker John O`Flynn.

O`Flynn - who has scored 29 goals in 59 league starts for the Bees - missed the 1-1 draw with Burton last Saturday with a knee injury and would not have been fit to face Accrington in midweek.

That game fell foul of the horrendous weather in Lancashire and the Irishman may now play some part at Edgar Street.

His place against the Brewers was taken by 41-year-old Paul Furlong, who played the full 90 minutes on his return from an eye injury which had kept him out of the previous five games.

Centre-half Ismail Yakubu is still being troubled by his persistent back problem which has plagued the second half of his season so Clovis Kamdjo and Gary Breen will continue their partnership.

Ian Hendon`s side have taken five points from their last four games to ease any lingering fears of relegation and look set for a comfortable mid-table finish.
