Barnet manager Mark Stimson could hand a debut to new recruit Charlie Taylor when his side host Cheltenham.

Stimson dipped into the non-league market this week to boost his strikeforce by signing Taylor from Sutton United.

The 24-year-old, who has been training with the Bees for the past fortnight, arrives at Underhill for an undisclosed fee.

"He brings us something different to what we have," said Stimson. "He's a striker who plays off the shoulder and I am looking forward to working with him."

Bees striker Steve Kabba could feature after returning to full training barely three weeks after fearing he had broken his leg.

The much-travelled 29-year-old was stretchered out of Barnet's opening-day defeat at Chesterfield but suffered only ligament damage.

Cheltenham will remain without defender Martin Riley.

Robins boss Mark Yates had hoped Riley would of overcome a minor hamstring tear for the trip to Underhill but revealed the 21-year-old will remain sidelined for a further three weeks.

Yates told the club's official website: "Martin Riley won't be available for the weekend but he is progressing well. (Sports therapist) Ian Weston and I were convinced he would be okay but it didn't prove to be.

"He'll go through an intensive couple of weeks and hopefully we'll see him back in three weeks time."

Portsmouth midfielder Marlon Pack will be pushing to make his debut after joining on loan for the rest of the season on transfer deadline day.

Fellow loanee Shaun Jeffers is expected to offer a threat from the bench again following international duty with England Under-19s, having come off the bench to score the winner against Burton last weekend.
