Barnet Football Club



Barnet are back in the play-offs this season, but this time in the semi-final, where we take on Solihull Moors in the final hurdle before Wembley.


So, what’s the Buzz?
Barnet come into the game in fine form, having not lost in the last eight games. This run has seen Dean Brennan’s side score 22 goals and concede eight. The period has also seen Nicke Kabamba hit 50 goals for the club, and players coming back from injuries means confidence is high in the camp going into the most important game of the season so far.


Club captain Jerome Okimo added to this in his interview to preview the game, saying, “The mood’s been good… the campaign has been good, but we want to make it great”.


Danny Collinge, who has scored 9 goals this season as a centre-back, also said, “There is nothing I want more for these lads and for this club.”

Opposition Report
Solihull also come into this playoff game in good form, having lost only once in their last seven fixtures, which includes a 4-2 win over Halifax in their first playoff game.


Less than a month ago, they also drew to Barnet 2-2 at Damson Park, seeing an early goal and a last-minute equaliser to earn The Moors a point.


Solihull defender James Clark has also said they want to take momentum into Saturday, and that “we’ve got such an attacking threat now, and I think we have to have confidence that we can beat anyone”.


One to Watch: Jamey Osborne
Showing his quality last time out against The Bees, the midfielder is a technically sound player who has popped up with four goals this season despite starting from deep. More specifically, he is, on paper, one of the double-pivot in a 4-2-3-1, though makes runs forward, as seen in the Halifax game with his 87th minute goal.


At 31-years-old, Osborne started his career with 160 appearences for Hednesford Town. He then ended up at Solihull for the 2016-17 season before moving to Grimsby Town. He was then loaned back to The Moors in 2017 before moving back to them in 2018. Since then, he has made 148 league appearances for the club, scoring 21.


In the dugout: Andy Whing
Joining The Moors in 2023, this is Andy Whing’s first season in charge, and has taken his side from a 15th-placed finish last season to fifth this year.


Speaking ahead of the game tomorrow, he explained that, “both teams are coming into it full of confidence and momentum but I don’t think that will have too much bearing on it”.
