Jimmy Dean’s squad is significantly bolstered with the arrival of six first team players on Thursday, with former Barnet winger Sean Shields unable to make his home debut for the Iron tomorrow.

The new additions, and their respective squad numbers, can be seen listed by clicking here.

Marcus Carver (groin) continues to miss out through injury.


The Bees took all three points away from home mid-week on their travels down to Eastleigh, with Ryan De Havilland and Ben Wynter both netting on Tuesday evening.

The side from London currently sit in 5th position, with Andy Woodman’s side registering 14 wins and 5 draws from 26games this season.

Victory against Eastleigh in the week extended their unbeaten run in the Vanarama National League to nine games.

Barnet have kicked on in the league with their form since a one-all draw at The Hive against the Iron in late November.

Dean Brennan’s side have also carried form well into the Isuzu FA Trophy, lining up a quarter-final tie away at Torquay following victories against Plymouth Parkway and Solihull Moors in respective rounds.
