Haydn Hollis is looking forward to the challenge of facing Barnet at Meadow Lane on Sunday.

The defender, who has worked his way back into starting contention under new manager Kevin Nolan, believes the continuation of strong home form will see the Magpies safe in League Two.

“I think if we carry on doing what we’ve been doing since the manager has come in we shouldn’t have to worry," he said. "But you’re always looking over your shoulder until you’re mathematically safe.

“The gaffer said when he came in and looked around the dressing room we had enough quality to stay up and I believe that too.

"We have to keep doing things right and if we do then I don't think we will have a problem."

Barnet come into the game having only won one of their previous 12 games but Hollis is not taking the Bees lightly.

He said: “Obviously they have Akinde, who is one of the top scorers in the league, and Jamal Campbell-Ryce, who I know well from his time here. He’s a good player.

"There is nobody to be scared of in this division but you also have to show everybody respect whether they are at the top of the league or at the bottom.

“I’m glad it’s a home game because we are on good form here at the minute and the fans are really getting behind us. It makes a massive difference for us.

“At home we set the standard and we have been able to put teams under pressure and set the tempo ourselves.”
