All the news, facts and stats ahead of Saturday's match against Salisbury City

Introduction

• Barnet host Salisbury City this Saturday at 15.00.

• We are running a Kids for a Quid offer so remember to get down to The Hive and cheer on the team.

• The Bees have failed to win in any of their previous five matches and after an impressive start to the season they have slipped to 12th in the Skrill Premier table.

• They are however just three points away from a play-off place and a win against fourth place Salisbury would put them back on track.

• Many tipped Saturday’s opponents for the drop but they have currently won five of their last six games. 

• They’re unbeaten in eight matches with their last defeat coming against Alfreton Town on 17th August.

• The match will also see the return of fan favourite Clovis Kamdjo who left the Bees during the summer.

• Jake Hyde is recovering well and although he misses out he could return as early as next weekend.

• Jack Saville has also returned to training and could feature.

• The Whites play their home fixtures at The Raymond McEnhill Stadium. 

• In the summer of 2009 the club faced bankruptcy and in early September they entered administration. They were fined and deducted points before being 
demoted two divisions in May 2010 due to a breach of Conference rules. 

• The club didn’t stay in the Southern premier League for long clinching promotion via the play-offs on penalties against Hednesford.
