Manager John Coleman will be without Ian Dunbavin when Accrington look for their first win in 10 as they host Barnet.

The defender received a two-match ban after being sent off in Stanley's 5-1 thrashing at Crewe and although the club have appealed against the decision, he is unlikely to feature against the Bees.

Leam Richardson and Alan Burton will once again be missing for Accrington as they both continue their recovery from groin problems.

However, Coleman has no new injury or suspension worries, though he may opt to make changes after seeing his side's woeful run continue on Saturday.

Stanley will be looking to finish their season on a high after going on a winless run that has seen them fall down the table.

Barnet have drafted Ahmed Deen into their squad as they look for the win that would secure their Football League status.

The Bees are currently four points clear of second bottom Grimsby, who they face this weekend, but their destiny is in their own hands as they have a game in hand over the Mariners.

Deen has been called into the squad following the departure of Matt Lockwood, who has returned to parent club Colchester after his loan deal expired at the weekend.

Leading scorer John O`Flynn missed six games with a knee injury before returning to play the full 90 minutes of Saturday`s 1-0 defeat by Rotherham and the striker will be looking to retain his place in the side.

Ismail Yakubu continues to be troubled by his persistent back problem, but he could return in time for the trip to Grimsby.
