Barnet Football Club




Harry Crawford is hoping to make an impact on Saturday against Accrington Stanley after being recalled from Dartford earlier this week.
The forward joined Barnet from the Darts in January but after just three appearances for the Bees he rejoined his former club on loan.
Dani Lopez has now left the club and with Jake Hyde and Craig Beattie struggling for match fitness Crawford is looking to have his say in the Npower League Two relegation battle.
“I am definitely hoping to make an impact,” stated Crawford. “I have been training hard all week and keep progressing so hopefully I will get on the pitch.
“It was just a month’s loan back at Dartford to get some playing time. Unfortunately two of the games got called off but it was nice to play a few times and get a goal. 
“I enjoyed my time there and I enjoyed playing football again but now I am back I am fully focussed on getting back in the squad and helping the team out.”
Crawford has already scored once for the Bees and he is confident that he can regain the form that saw him score 12 goals before Christmas for the Darts at Underhill.
“Any striker has to have confidence to score goals and if you don’t have it you have already lost half the battle. 
“I am confident that I can score goals in League Two and hopefully I can hit the form I had earlier in the season with Dartford. 
“The team has been playing really well lately and picked up some decent results so hopefully I can score some goals and help them out.”
The Bees were left heartbroken on Tuesday night as a 96th minute winner denied them a point at the Kassam Stadium and although Crawford did not feature he shared the team’s frustration. 
“It is frustrating because we are not getting the points we deserve,” he explained. “We definitely deserved a point against Oxford United but these things happen when you’re down the bottom.
“We are working hard and hopefully we will be rewarded for another good performance on Saturday against Accrington.” 
Saturday’s opponents currently sit bottom of Npower League Two and the match represents a perfect opportunity to increase the gap between the Bees and the drop zone.
“It is a massive game because the table can change very quickly, you only have to look at Bristol Rovers who won two or three games and shot right up the table.
“Every game is a massive game and we go out in every match to win but we’re taking each one as it comes and at the moment we are fully focussed on Accrington and getting the three points.”
