A game which has been delayed multiple times due to both sides enjoying cup runs, manager Adam Hinshelwood has a relatively healthy squad to chose from for their first match on the road for over two weeks.
“There’s no fresh injuries to report although its probably too late for Ollie Pearce and Jasper Pattenden to come back, Alex Parsons took a whack to the eye at home to Carshalton but he should be back now, and obviously Joel is suspended.”
The Reds go into the away game on the back of an unbeaten streak from their last three matches which were all played at Woodside Road, with boss Hinshelwood relishing the long-awaited tie with The Scholars.
“In the last 18 months or so we’ve got one of the best records away from home, so we’re looking to extend that and keep it going, but Potters Bar is a tricky place to go to.”
Tonight’s hosts currently sit in 10th position, seven points behind The Mackerels having played two games less, and reached the FA Cup Fourth qualifying round taking Barnet of the National League to a replay at The Hive.
“We’ll go into the game with a lot of confidence but we can’t be complacent and our performance will have to be better than Saturday to get a result.”
Last season’s meetings between the two sides saw them battle out 1-1 draws both at Woodside Road and the Pakex Stadium.
