Preview: Barnet (A)

9 February 2018

Notts County travel to Barnet this weekend looking to move back into the Sky Bet League Two automatic promotion places.

The Magpies were knocked down to fourth in the league following Accrington's 2-1 win over Swindon on Tuesday night and they must now refocus on trying to win promotion after seeing their Emirates FA Cup run ended by Swansea.

Barnet remain rock bottom of the division, seven points from safety, and have taken two points from three games under new manager Graham Westley, including a 1-1 stalemate with Lincoln in their last home outing.

Notts boss Kevin Nolan says...

“I'm hoping the players are just concentrating on what is right in front of them. They’ve done that time and time again this season since I’ve arrived.

“Hopefully we can do that again on Saturday, but by no means is it going to be easy.

“I trust these lads that they will give 110 percent and if they play to their capabilities that will give them a fantastic chance of winning the game.”

Team news

Nolan was hopeful to have Matt Tootle and Elliott Hewitt available after being without the pair due to illness earlier in the week.

Goalkeeper Ross Fitzsimons is available after serving a three-game suspension and Mason Bennett is also back in the fold after being cup-tied for the trip to Swansea.

For the Bees, Dan Sweeney serves the second of his three game suspension while Jamie Stephens (hamstring), Harry Taylor (metatarsal) and Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro (knee) are out.

Elliott Johnson (knee) and Dave Tarpey (knee) are long-term absentees for the Londoners.


Shaquile Coulthirst has 10 goals to his name so far his season after moving to the Hive in the summer.

Six of those came in September, when the pacy forward picked up the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month award.

The striker, formerly of Tottenham, spent most of his time at White Hart Lane out on loan in the EFL with Barnet the ninth club he has represented.

We've met before...

The side playing at home has won each of the last eight meetings between the two teams in League Two.

Goals from Shola Ameobi and Ryan Yates gave Notts all three points in the last meeting between the sides at Meadow Lane, Simeon Akinola bagging the consolation.

What are the odds?

Sky Bet have priced Notts up as 19/20 odds-on favourites to get back on the winning track this weekend, while the visitors are the outsiders at 11/4. The draw is available at 5/2.

A 2-1 Notts win is 15/2 or a 3-1 success can be backed at odds of 16/1.

Noor Husin has two goals in as many games and can be backed at 10/1 to open the scoring at the Hive. Mason Bennett, meanwhile, is 11/2 to be the first name on the scoresheet.

You can get odds of 3/1 on Notts winning with both teams scoring or 5/2 to win the game to-nil.

Match Reports

Barnet 1-0 Notts

Late strike wins it for Bees

10 February 2018

Barnet struck late on to secure a 1-0 victory over Notts County at the Hive.

Alex Nicholls latched on to a long kick forward to beat Adam Collin deep into second-half stoppage time, earning his side all three points.

Kevin Nolan made four changes to the team that beat Crewe Alexandra in their last league outing.

Matt Tootle, who had been missing for a month through illness, replaced Nicky Hunt, while there was a first Notts start for Mason Bennett up front, Jon Stead dropping to the bench.

Rob Milsom, who came off the bench in Notts' midweek defeat at Swansea City, started alongside Noor Husin in central midfield as Elliott Hewitt missed out through illness.

And Terry Hawkridge came in for Lewis Alessandra out wide as the Magpies sought a double success over the Bees following their 2-1 win in the reverse fixture at Meadow Lane.

An arctic wind was blowing rain around the Hive and both teams struggled to get to grips with the horrible conditions early on.

Husin, targeting his third goal in as many matches, fizzed an effort just wide of the post before Barnet forward Jon Akinde drew a decent save from Adam Collin with a low shot.

Richard Duffy then went into the book for a foul on Nicholls before Akinde and Curtis Weston both fired efforts well off-target.

There was disappointment for Notts on 21 minutes when, after pulling up chasing a pass, Bennett was deemed unfit to continue and headed straight down the tunnel for treatment. Jonathan Forte replaced him and lined up alongside Shola Ameobi up top.

Determined to seize his chance, Forte nearly had a sight at goal when he latched on to Collin's long ball forward but Charlie Clough produced a superb last-ditch challenge to deny him a shot.

Akinde fired a 25-yard effort over in response and, shortly after Collin did well to save Nicholls' low effort, Tootle had to make an excellent challenge to deny the striker.

Forte latched on to Ameobi's pass before rolling the ball inches wide and, shortly after the beginning of the second half, the substitute saw his header saved by the legs of Craig Ross.

Collin then made an important save of his own, denying Jordan Nicholson before Bees sub Simeon Akinola fired the rebound into the side-netting.

Husin sent 25-yard shots wide and over as the Magpies sought the game's elusive first goal.

And they nearly had it in unorthadox fashion when Milsom's corner looked to be going all the way in. Richard Brindley was on hand to clear off the line.

Husin joined Duffy in the book for a foul and Liam Walker replaced Hawkridge as the game entered its latter stages.

Walker nearly made an immediate impact, bending the ball narrowly wide from 20 yards, before Liam Noble came on for Milsom in Nolan's final substitution.

Notts were looking the more likely team to find the breakthrough and Walker took centre stage once again with 15 minutes to play, almost catching Ross of guard with a free-kick. The keeper reacted in time to push the ball away.

And there was a late chance for the Magpies when Ameobi saw a shot saved before Jorge Grant and Noble were denied by Brindley as they tried to scramble the ball home on the rebound.

Three minutes of added time were indicated at the end of the 90, during which Noble was booked for stopping a quick Barnet counter-attack.

There was still time for either side to find a winner but when Clough nodded the ball wide it looked like the game was set for stalemate.

Nicholls had other ideas, however, latching on to a long ball forward to finish from an angle and send Notts home with nothing to show for their efforts.
