Martin Allen will be careful when it comes to making additions to his Barnet squad as he does not want to risk mutiny in the camp and give the young players a chance to shine.
The Bees have 19 players in their squad at the moment and the manager is keen to bring in a number two goalkeeper with Ashlee Jones impressing on trial.
But Allen is not going to add players for the sake of filling out the bench, which increases from five substitutes in the Conference to seven in the Football League, and cited the performance of Wycombe as an example of it working well.
He said: “I've got to be very careful as there's only 11 you can play. Wycombe had 18 players and they were top until February and only drifted away at the end.
“Only three of them go on. I'm not bothered between five or seven. We've got 10 young lads and some of them are good players.
“If I bring more players in, would I stop their development when I have two or three of them training with me every day and they become better players. If I block that pathway through then what's the point of having them?”
