Barnet will look to emulate last season's League Two winners, Burton Albion, Martin Allen has insisted.
The Bees boss was impressed with the way the Brewers maintained their title charge with a small squad and wants his side to be the same.
He said: “Burton Albion won the league and they didn't buy any players. They had fantastic team spirit, camaraderie and were very organised.
“They were similar to Barnet last season. Some of the fees others were paying were double what we pay.
“But we were very fit, honest, had self belief, humble and disciplined. That formula worked for us in the Conference and worked for Burton.”
And Allen cited Portsmouth, Luton, Cambridge and Oxford as the big spenders in the division.
He added: “Portsmouth and Luton have brought in 11 players. Cambridge have brought in god knows how many players as have Oxford. What a great challenge we face.
“We have to work to the same values and principles put in place last summer and I urge our fans to get behind the players and staff.
“We are, kind of, going into the unknown. I was the manager of the League Two champions two years ago. Can we do it? Only time will tell but it's exciting.”
