Barnet manager Mark Stimson hopes to name an unchanged side for the visit of Stockport.

Defender Anwar Uddin and striker Ricky Holmes have had plenty of time to get over the knocks which forced them off during the 2-0 win over Accrington a fortnight ago and will be in the starting XI.

Former England Under-21 frontman Izale McLeod, who scored both goals against Stanley, was struggling with stiff muscles following what was his first start of the season but he will also be fine.

Winger Glenn Poole should be on the bench again after recovering from an ankle injury but Mark Byrne (knee), Daniel Leach, Darren Dennehy (both foot) and Danny Kelly (hamstring) remain sidelined.

The Underhill pitch passed an inspection on Monday afternoon.

Stockport begin life without striker Barry Conlon.

Conlon left the club by mutual consent last week following a number of "off field" issues.

The much-travelled frontman, who only joined County in the summer, was recently banned from driving after he drove whilst almost twice over the legal limit.

Conlon had suffered with injury for much of his stay at Edgeley Park which has resulted in him not making the impact expected.

Right-back Mark Lynch has been nursing a knee injury but looks certain to be passed fit, although he may be forced to settle for a place on the bench.

Boss Paul Simpson has no other major injury or suspension concerns, however, centre-back Danny Swailes remains a long-term absentee with cruciate knee ligament damage.
