Barnet boss Ian Hendon is set to be handed a triple boost ahead of the visit of Crewe.

Craig McAllister was refused permission to play in the midweek FA Cup defeat by Accrington but returns to the fold along with Mark Hughes, who is back from a suspension, and Albert Adomah (ankle), with all three players set to start.

Elliot Charles may also be in contention for a starting berth after being cup-tied in midweek, while Dean Sinclair (flu) and Calum Butcher (calf) will be hoping to feature again after recovering from their respective ailments in time to play against Accrington.

Ryan O'Neill (ankle) resumed training this week but is not fit enough to be included in the squad, while fellow absentee Joe Devera (thigh) is due to return to training next week.

But long-term absentees Gary Breen and Clovis Kamdjo (both knee) remain sidelined.

Harry Worley could be added to the Crewe squad. The centre-half, on loan from Leicester, has been out for over two months with an ankle injury but played the full 90 minutes in a behind-closed-doors friendly this week.

However, fellow defender Carl Martin was not fit enough to take part in the game.

Forward Shaun Miller and midfielders Steve Schumacher and James Bailey continue to be ruled out with groin problems.

Crewe are on a season-best run of four league games unbeaten and caretaker manager Dario Gradi has named the same starting XI for the last three matches.

After sustaining no new injury or suspension problems in the goalless home draw against Lincoln last weekend the veteran boss may stick with an unchanged line-up once more.
