John Coleman has vowed to ring the changes when his Accrington side host Barnet.

The Stanley boss was furious with his players after their third defeat in the space of seven days at Bournemouth on Saturday.

Coleman admitted he should have made changes following the defeat against Burton last week and is set to wield the axe for the clash with the Bees.

Chris Turner, Sean McConville and Gary King could all benefit after coming off the bench at Dean Court, while the likes of John Mullin and Peter Murphy could also get the nod.

Goalkeeper Ian Dunbavin was at fault for the Cherries' second goal and Coleman must decide whether to keep faith with him or recall Dean Bouzanis.

Leading scorer Michael Symes will not feature once again as he serves the final instalment of a three-match ban, while Leam Richardson (groin) and Alan Burton (ankle) remain sidelined.

Barnet will again be without 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 on Saturday with a knee injury and is not expected to be fit enough to travel to Lancashire.

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.
