THE ROBINS:

League Position: 17th (P35, W11, D8, L16) 

Last Result: Altrincham 0-4 Sutton United (Saturday, April 17th)

Manager: Phil Parkinson 

Top Scorer: Josh Hancock (11 goals)

The Bees next opponents have stumbled of late and are without a win in their last three, losing all three fixtures and scoring no goals in the process. Parkinson's side will be targetting the fixture with the Bees as one to eradicate their recent poor form and will be hoping they can stop the rot on home soil. The Robins made a very good start to life back in The National League and were on the fringes of the play-off places back in January when the sides last met. However, on the whole, since the turn of the year they have slid down the league table and are firmly sat in the bottom half. All in all with no relegation, the Robins will be planning for their second season back in the league and will be hoping to perhaps build some momentum before the campaign finishes at the end of May. 

The Robins were formidable when the sides last met at The Hive, after JJ Hooper put the Bees ahead, Parkinson's side responded quickly through Matty Kosylo to level the scores ahead of half time. Parkinson's side continued to pile on the pressure and got their reward in the first minute of added time when top scorer Josh Hanock poked home to secure all three points for the Robins. That game highlighted the Robins style of football, they like to pass and keep possession, meaning it'll be another different test for Simon Bassey's side. 

THE BEES: 

The Bees head to the North-West in fine fettle and will be full of confidence after going three matches unbeaten since Simon Bassey took the helm earlier in the month. Tuesday nights goalless draw was another strong display from the Bees, who stood up to everything the Wood tried to throw at them, despite the pressure Aymen Azaze rarely had to make a save in a scrappy game in Hertfordshire. Tomorrow's trip provides a different test for the Bees, but they'll head to the J Davidson Stadium knowing that they are more than capable of securing a positive result, which could move them closer to the pack above them in The National League table.

In terms of team news, Michael Petrasso continues to train with the team as he looks to ramp up his recovery from injury. Courtney Baker-Richardson is also available after serving his suspension from the red card he received away at Wealdstone on Easter Monday.

Match Reports

Match Pack: Barnet 3-1 Aldershot Town

17 April 2021

The Bees secured their first win in two months, as they beat Aldershot Town 3-1 with an all round top class display at the Hive London.

HOW IT HAPPENED

The Bees were back at home, hoping to build on the point gained last weekend in the 0-0 draw away to Maidenhead United.

It was a bright start from both sides in truth with the Bees probably enjoying slightly more possession, especially in the final third, which led to the first chance coming from JJ Hooper, although Mitch Walker made an easy save to deny it.

The Bees continued to be a nuisance for the Shots backline with Alexander McQueen's quick turn of pace nearly playing Hooper in again, only for the ball to just evade his path.

The Shots weren't really causing much of a threat to Aymen Azaze's goal and had appeals for a penalty for handball waved away by the referee after 22 minutes.

Despite the bright start to the game, the Bees were still struggling to make an impact from set pieces, but were continuing to create more and more chances as Aldershot began to look vulnerable at the back.

The Bees patience eventually paid off though after 32 minutes when a brilliantly timed cross from Lee Vaughan allowed Hooper to make perfect contact with the ball and head the Bees into the lead.

However, five minutes later it was 1-1 after Azaze was unable to deal with an Aldershot corner dropping the ball into his own net.

Even with the goal, the Bees continued to control the game and maintain their rhythm of play, but nevertheless went into the break level.

There was a lot more intent in the Shots play after the restart, playing with more confidence and restricting the Bees from getting out of their half in the opening ten minutes.

During this period of pressure, the Shots still didn't really do much to cause Azaze any real difficulties in the Bees goal, other than one low free kick, which he just got his finger tips to, and this allowed the rest of the team to get more of a foothold in the game again.

Ephron Mason-Clark was having a really good game and managed to win his side a penalty after being taken down in the box, which he calmly converted into the bottom right hand corner, to give the Bees a 2-1 lead with about 20 minutes of the game to go.

Just before the final whistle substitute Tomi Adeloye pulled off a marvellous piece of footwork to set himself through on goal to make it 3-1, securing a well earned win for Simon Bassey's side.

Barnet Team: Azaze, Preston, McQueen, Hooper (Adeloye 87'), Kefalas, H.Taylor (Richards-Everton 87'), Beard, Skeffington, Mason-Clark, Vaughan, Daly

Subs not used: Callan, McBurnie and Nugent
