Nurse misses Barnet shift Barnet will be without Jon Nurse for the visit of Bradford.
The striker starts a three-match ban after he was sent off during the New Year's Day defeat by Aldershot.
Player boss Edgar Davids missed out against the Shots with a shoulder injury and although he is close to being fit, a return at Rotherham in a week seems more likely.
Fellow midfielder John Oster was brought off with 20 minutes to go but the move was only precautionary following his recent spell out injured so he should be involved again.
Adam Thompson could make his debut in defence after signing from Watford on a one-month loan deal.
Strikers Collins John (hernia), Ishmail Kamara (shoulder) and Steve Kabba (knee) remain on the sidelines.
The Bees will kick off one point and one place outside the drop zone in League Two.
Defender Carl McHugh is expected to return to action for Bradford.
McHugh has missed the last three games with a calf injury but could feature due to the expected absence of fellow defender James Meredith.
Meredith is struggling with the virus that forced him out of the action in the goalless draw at Morecambe on New Year's Day and will be assessed on Friday.
Striker Ross Hannah is another player currently feeling unwell, while winger Garry Thompson is definitely out due to minor knee ligament damage, which could keep him sidelined for 10 days.
Nahki Wells is hoping to return to the starting line-up after battling with illness over the Christmas period.
Barnet vs Bradford

Bees ease relegation fears Strikes either side of half-time from Taiwo Atieno and John Oster eased Barnet's relegation fears against play-off chasing Bradford.
The Bantams, who face Aston Villa in the semi-final first leg of the Capital One Cup on Tuesday, looked off the pace and Atieno took full advantage by tapping in Elliot Johnson's cross four minutes before half-time.
Oster then converted Ricky Holmes' low centre three minutes after the restart to earn the Bees a first win in three games.
Bradford's James Hanson almost scored an early goal but his third-minute shot was narrowly wide of Graham Stack's goal.
Gary Jones then got away an unchallenged header deep in the Barnet box from Stephen Darby's 38th-minute delivery, but he produced a simple save from Stack.
Despite their early dominance, Bradford's defence failed to cope with Johnson's low delivery which allowed Atieno to fire into the middle of the goal from two yards.
And Oster's effort secured all three points for Barnet in an entertaining second half.
The former Sunderland midfielder finished a clinical counter-attack following a horrible miss from Bradford's Nahki Wells.
