Injury-hit Barnet will check on defender Anwar Uddin ahead of the visit of Macclesfield.

Uddin was forced out of last weekend's defeat at Stockport with a calf problem to join the growing list of defensive casualties at Underhill.

Darren Dennehy (foot), Grant Basey and Daniel Leach (both ankle) have already been ruled out with long-term injuries this season.

Steve Kabba looks set to miss out again with ankle ligament damage, fellow striker Charlie Taylor (groin) and winger Glenn Poole (thigh) are still struggling and recent signing Izale McLeod is not yet fit after knee surgery.

But the Bees will be boosted by the return of midfielder Rossi Jarvis, who missed out last weekend due to a migraine.

Macclesfield boss Gary Simpson will be without a number of players for the trip.

Striker Emile Sinclair remains sidelined with a hamstring strain, midfielder Richard Butcher is still out with a knee injury and defender Shaun Brisley is out for four months with a hip injury.

Forward Ricky Sappleton is still working back to fitness after a knee problem and is not yet ready for a first-team return despite playing a couple of reserve games.

Striker Tyrone Barnett is available to return after missing last weekend's victory against Oxford and midfielder Hamza Bencherif should be fit after being taken off with a back injury.

Simpson responded to last weekend's success by giving his men Monday and Tuesday off, further boosting spirits as they prepare to face the Bees.
