John Oster and Craig Beattie are doubts for Barnet.

Former Everton midfielder Oster has sat out the last three matches with a hamstring injury and is not expected to recover in time.

Ex-Celtic and Swansea striker Beattie was also forced to miss last weekend's 2-1 defeat at Plymouth with a hamstring problem and he will be checked over.

Player-manager Edgar Davids has drafted in Watford midfielder Ross Jenkins on a month's loan so he could make his debut.

Davids is still without forwards Ricky Holmes (foot) and Steve Kabba (knee) but Luke Gambin pushed his claims for a start with a goal for the reserves in midweek and fellow striker Jamal Lowe is back from a loan spell at Boreham Wood.

Andy Parrish remains Morecambe's only injury doubt.

Parrish has been sidelined in recent weeks with a thigh problem and will be assessed ahead of the trip to Underhill.

The Shrimps are enjoying a rich vein of form, winning five of their past eight matches, but goalkeeper Barry Roche believes the struggling Bees will provide them with a stern test.

He said: "It's always tough when you go to Barnet, no matter what position they are in the league, it's always a tough place to go.

"We've seen that over recent years where we've had a couple of really good battles with them.

"They're in desperate need of the points so it's a good game and a game we're all looking forward to."

Forward Jordan Burrow is pushing for inclusion after bagging a brace during Morecambe's 2-0 reserve win over Tranmere in midweek.
