Perennial League 2 strugglers Barnet face a Morecambe side in decent form at Underhill on Saturday and will be scrapping for points.
Barnet’s loss to relegation rivals Plymouth Argyle last week means they are just a point off bottom of the league Wimbledon and sat precariously in 22nd place. Barnet have only lost 2 out of 8 home games against teams operating in the top half of the table. They seem to have a knack of avoiding the drop in recent seasons and they will know that it relies on picking up something from games like this.
Morecambe’s key man, the bald headed Kevin Ellison, put pen to paper on a new contract at the Globe Arena, and showed his worth in Morecambe’s drubbing of Rochdale with a stunning volley and will be one to watch. They have won 3 of their last 6 with their losses coming against the best home side in Burton at the Pirelli and the 2nd best away side in Exeter at home. Their play-off hopes look to have diminished; they are 9 points of 7th place with just 10 games left and would need a good run of wins to have any chance.
