Stat Attack: Barnet vs. Notts County, 26 November 2016

Joe Jones

Notts County and Barnet have met each other just 14 times over the years.

The first fixture came on 1 November 1997, with the Magpies earning a 2-1 away win in Division Three.

Notts have eight wins against the Bees, with four defeats and three draws.

The last fixture between the two was on 19 April this year, with Jon Stead's early penalty at the Hive Stadium cancelled out by three second half Bees goals for a 3-1 home win.

The club was founded in Chipping Barnet, then part of Hertfordshire, in 1888.

Several incarnations of the club existed before the third Barnet FC, created after the First World War, came to be - this entity continues till today.

Barnet have won the Football Conference a record three times - in 1991, 2005, and 2015, as well as finishing second three other times.

Aside from a runners-up medal in the 1971-72 FA Trophy, their silverware cabinet is restricted to minor trophies.

A number of Barnet players have gone on to represent Premier League clubs. They include Dougie Freedman, Marlon King, Andy Clarke, Linvoy Primus, Maik Taylor, Mark Gower, Jason Puncheon, Yannick Bolasie and Albert Adomah.

Players who came to the club towards the end of their careers include Jimmy Greaves, Mark Lawrenson, David Hillier, Alan Pardew, Eddie Newton, Paul Warhurst, Steve Kabba, John Oster, Jonathan Fortune, Edgar Davids and Lee Cook.

Team news

Barnet are still without suspended defender Alie Sesay for Saturday's visit of Notts County.

Sesay completes a three-match ban for his red card in the draw against Grimsby Town earlier this month.

Michael Gash, James Pearson, Shaun Batt and Gavin Hoyte are all long-term absentees.

Defender Bondz N'Gala this week left Barnet after two years to join National League side Eastleigh for an undisclosed fee.

Notts County's leading scorer Jon Stead has resumed training after more than a month out with an ankle injury but the trip to The Hive will come too soon for the nine-goal striker.

The 33-year-old is likely to play against Chesterfield next week in a reserve-team match ahead of putting himself back in first-team contention for the FA Cup clash with Peterborough on December 4.

Fellow striker Vadaine Oliver is available again after suspension while winger Alex Rodman could overcome a groin problem.

Rob Milsom will serve a one-match ban after receiving his fifth yellow card of the season in the home defeat to Cambridge.

Midfielder Stanley Aborah is doubtful while Curtis Thompson is still out as the Magpies look to arrest a three-game losing run in League Two.
