Four players missing for Barnet ahead of Exeter clash

Four players missing for Barnet ahead of Exeter clash

Barnet manager Martin Allen will be without four players for the visit of Exeter in League Two on Saturday.

Midfielder Sam Togwell had an operation on a hernia on Thursday and is expected to be out for six weeks while defender James Pearson is sidelined with a knee problem.

Defender Gavin Hoyte and striker Michael Gash are both recovering from knee ligament injuries and while Hoyte is back in light training, he is still some way off making a competitive return.

Barnet sit 19th in the table and have not won any of their last five league matches.

Exeter goalkeeper Christy Pym could get another opportunity after he was surprisingly handed the gloves last weekend.

Under-fire boss Paul Tisdale dropped the experienced Austrian Bobby Olejnik to give Pym his first league start for 18 months, and the 21-year-old responded by keeping a clean sheet in the goalless draw with Grimsby.

Summer arrival Troy Archibald-Henville has returned to training following the groin injury which has prevented him from making his second Grecians debut, but he will not be considered for selection just yet.

Jordan Tillson (ankle), Troy Brown (hip), Tom McCready (groin) and Ryan Harley (hip) all remain out as bottom-but-one Exeter seek to end a run of three games without a goal.
