Accrington will be without influential captain Andrew Procter for the visit of Barnet.

The midfielder is suspended after being shown a second yellow card in the 1-0 win at Shrewsbury on Saturday. Sean McConville will take Procter's place in the starting XI.

Stanley have been boosted by the news that Dean Bouzanis, Johnny Flynn and Billy Kee are all available after extending their loan stays from Liverpool, Blackburn and Leicester respectively until the end of the season.

Boss John Coleman is likely to stick with the same attacking duo that has heralded 27 goals this season so far, with top scorer Michael Symes partnering Robert Grant.

However, defender Leam Richardson (groin) remains absent and is still yet to feature during the current campaign.

The Reds moved to within touching distance of the League Two play-offs with their victory over the Shrews and Coleman will be looking to continue their current run which has seen them lose just once in their past eight league games.

Midfielder Mark Hughes may again be asked to fill in at centre-half for Barnet.

Hughes played alongside veteran Gary Breen at Notts County on Saturday where a 2-0 defeat extended the Bees` winless run to 14 matches.

Ismail Yakubu lasted just four minutes of last week's clash with Torquay before collapsing with a back spasm which forced him to be hospitalised, and he will again miss out.

Fellow defender Clovis Kamdjo is recovering from knee surgery and could be back in training inside a fortnight, so Hughes will continue to deputise.

Winger Albert Adomah put in his best performance in several weeks at Notts County as he faces up to the prospect of staying at Underhill until the end of the season and boss Ian Hendon will hope for more in a bid to finally win.
