Barnet joint head coach Mark Robson was delighted to see the return of Ricky Holmes to the Bees side.

The winger has been out of action for the past few weeks due to an ankle injury but made an immediate impact – winning the penalty from which Barnet equalised.

“It’s good to see him back in,” Robson said. “We’ve missed him and his qualities. We saw tonight some of the stuff that he done was first class.

“It’s good to have him back. He’s a thorn in anybody’s side.

“I think he’ll be okay. He was tired. He had been out for a while. He’s full of effort Ricky.

“He doesn’t stop running to be fair to him. It was, literally, bring him off, make a change. While he was tired we wanted to make sure he didn’t pull anything.”

However, it’s not all good news as John Oster is set to continue his spell on the sidelines, along with Collins John.

“I’m not sure with John Oster,” Robson added.

“He’s obviously a player of experience that is a big player for the team. We hope to get him back sooner or later.

“Collins John is not yet fit to play. I don’t think he’ll be fit for Tuesday.

“I couldn’t give you a time at the moment.”
