Richard Brindley to be assessed by Barnet ahead of Carlisle clash

Bottom club Barnet will check on Richard Brindley ahead of the Sky Bet League Two clash against Carlisle.

Defender Brindley is a doubt after a knee problem forced him off during the second half of the 1-1 draw against Accrington on Saturday.

Midfielder Ruben Bover has missed the past two matches with a hamstring problem, so the Spaniard will be assessed again, while goalkeeper Jamie Stephens also has a hamstring injury.

Defender Harry Taylor (metatarsal) and forward Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro (knee) continue their recovery. Elliott Johnson and Dave Tarpey are long-term absentees with respective knee problems.

Carlisle winger John O’Sullivan is pressing for a recall to Keith Curle’s starting XI.

O’Sullivan came off the bench to score a late second goal in Saturday’s home win over Chesterfield, so will be hoping to force his way back into the team.

Mark Ellis could continue at centre-back as captain Danny Grainger remains doubtful having missed the past three matches.

Midfielder Luke Joyce (groin) and defender Tom Miller (foot) both also continue their recovery.
