Barnet out to shock Fleetwood

Barnet boss Darren Currie is hoping for another fine FA Cup run as his National League side prepare to face Fleetwood in the first round on Sunday.

The Bees reached round four last season, knocking out the likes of Sheffield United en route to losing to Brentford in a replay.

A 2-1 win over Chorley last weekend was a first league victory for Barnet since October 1 and Currie may stick with a similar side as they look to shock their Sky Bet League One opponents.

Jack Taylor scored off the bench in that game and could force his way into the side if Currie opts to make changes.

Fleetwood could welcome fit-again pair Conor McAleny and Ashley Eastham back into their starting line-up.

Manager Joey Barton may make alterations to the team that lost at Bolton last weekend and the duo are in contention to come in.

McAleny played the final half-hour against the Trotters after recovering from an ankle injury while Eastham may make his return from a calf issue.

If Barton does shuffle his pack, the likes of Dan Mooney and Harrison Biggins will be hopeful of some action.
