Midfielder David Livermore is a fitness doubt for Barnet ahead of their clash with Accrington.

The former Leeds midfielder lasted just 12 minutes of the 2-2 draw at Crewe last weekend before hobbling off with a side strain and he is unlikely to be fit to face Stanley.

Nicky Deverdics is hoping to take his place if manager Ian Hendon persists with a three-man midfield, while striker Jake Hyde could come into the side if the Bees revert to a 4-4-2.

Target man Ben Wright is in contention for a debut after signing on loan from Championship strugglers Peterborough.

Defender Ismail Yakubu is again close to fitness after eight games out with a back injury and may make his overdue return at Underhill, while veteran striker Paul Furlong is out for another fortnight with his eye problem.

Accrington manager John Coleman could hand a debut to new signing James McCarten.

The 19-year-old defender joined on loan from Premier League side Everton on Thursday after Stanley had a transfer embargo lifted.

And he will come into immediate contention for a starting berth as Stanley look to improve on a run of one win in their last seven outings.

On-loan Blackburn youngster Johnny Flynn, who impressed on international duty for Northern Ireland Under-21s recently, is also battling for a place in Coleman's back-four.

John Mullin is back in the first team fold after recovering from a troublesome ankle problem, but Alan Burton (ankle) and Leam Richardson (groin) are unlikely to figure.
