Martin Allen described Barnet’s treatment room as ‘like Casualty on a Saturday night’ after playing seven games in 22 days.
First-teamers Bondz N’Gala (hamstring), Curtis Weston (adductor) and Chris Hackett (knee) have all suffered injuries during a punishing run of fixtures for the Bees.
Allen put this in part down to the intensity with which his team play, saying, “We’ve seen that over the season, there games in a week’s not easy.
“These players are relentless, they play high intensity, high energy,” Allen added.
“It takes it out of them at the moment we haven’t got senior players we can bring into the team and fill the gaps.”
Allen himself was laid low with flu last week and missed the 3-0 midweek win at Newport due to illness.
Even physiotherapist Luigi Cerullo was taken poorly on Thursday night, forcing a reserve-team physio into action for the game at Bootham Crescent.
Further positives from the hard-fought draw at York came in the shape of Michael Gash and Shaun Batt returning to take places on the substitute’s bench.
The Bees boss looks forward to a free week for his team to lick their wounds ahead of Saturday’s game against Oxford United, saying, “The players deserve a break.
“We’re trying our best to get some of the injured players back into the fold but I don’t think they’re quite going to be ready.
“It’s like Casualty on a Saturday night at our club.We’ve had a few knocks, a few bruises but we’re fighting hard.”
