Matt Kosylo's first goal for Alty in the 35th minute brought the Robins level after Barnet scored through JJ Hooper in the 14th minute after Joel Senior lost possession to leave the Bees striker completely in the clear 35 yards from goal. It was a composed finish from just outside the area with Tony Thompson badly exposed. The Robins have been the better side but the Bees have looked quite dangerous when they have ventured forward. BARNET 1 ALTRINCHAM 1
Good spell of pressure by Alty, with Dan Mooney prominent ends with Kosylo opening up a shooting opportunity & firing in from just outside the area, low in off the post. BARNET 1 ALTRINCHAM 1

Blue skies, good flat pitch, how will The Robins fare today?

I've only ever seen us win once at Barnet - an Alliance Premier League Cup Semi Final First Leg in Feb 1980. A John King goal securing a 1-0 win in our first ever visit to Underhill.
On the bench we have Andy White. Yusifu Ceesay, Shaun Densmore, Tom Peers and Simon Richman. Jake not well today
Alty line up as follows: Tony Thompson as Captain, Hampson,, Sutton, Hannigan and Senior as back four; Toby Mullarkey as holding midfielder, Kosylo Mooney and Smith making up the rst of the midfield and Hancock and Harrison in his first start up front
