Barnet have shuffled their pack in recent months and manager Martin Allen is pleased with the result.
After his team’s FA Cup exit at the hands of Newport County at the start of December, Allen has kept his squad fresh with new signings and academy players.
Ahead of the trip to League Two strugglers York City, the Bees boss praised those who have deputised, saying, “I was well aware that changes had to be made.
“The players that have come in have done really well- Mark Randall, James Pearson, Alie Sesay, James Roberts.
“As well as the signings, the young players have also brought a fresh energy to the team and the changes have certainly brought the age of the squad down- it’s been impressive.”
Allen reserved particular praise for former Arsenal trainee Randall, adding: “Mark hadn’t played competitive football for a long time until recently.
“He’s a good technical player” he continued. “We all enjoy watching that extra bit of quality, and Mark certainly brings that to the table.”
Barnet, who sit 15th in the table, travel to Bootham Crescent tomorrow without the services of Bondz N’Gala (hamstring) and Curtis Weston (adductor), although Michael Gash and Shaun Batt have travelled with the squad.
The meeting with York, who have lost their last five games, is an opportunity for the Bees to keep their momentum going, according to Allen, “Every game that we play is difficult.
“The players have been rested for two days, and we’ll train on Friday afternoon when we get up to York” Allen added.
“We want as many points as we can get on the board and to finish as high up the league as possible.”
