Steve Kabba, who has been ruled out for the foreseeable future, had a major knee operation in the Princess Grace Hospital on Tuesday.
The 30-year-old striker will have to wait for the swelling to go down before he can start his rehabilitation. Kabba has been restricted to five start and seven substitute appearances this season - scoring three goals - after a previous knee operation towards the end of last season. sends best wishes from all at Underhill as Steve sets off on the recovery stage.
Another striker, 34 year-old Lloyd Owusu, has left Barnet after returning from a loan spell with Hayes & Yeading. Owusu made six appearances as a substitute for the Bees after signing a short term deal until next month.
Sam Cox, Barnet's 21-year-old midfielder, decides tomorrow whether or not to stay for a third month on loan at Boreham Wood. He has only been on the losing side once in his time there.
Striker Charlie Taylor was back in training with the Bees after his recent injury ahead of tomorrow's League 2 clash at Underhill against high flying Cheltenham Town and on-loan central defender Michael Hector, who missed last week's visit to Torquay United with a shin injury, is back in the reckoning.
The only casualties, apart from Kabba, are Daniel Leach and 18-year-old Mauro Vilhete, who has returned from a loan spell at Hendon, where he played six games, with a knee injury that looks as if it will rule him out for the New Year.
In a week dominated by Lawrie Sanchez's decision to pledge his future to Barnet and the announcement that the Bees are set to leave Underhill, the crowd for the visit of Cheltenham is important - are those pledging support and those petitioning to stay going to attend the game?
The average home attendance at Underhill this season is 1,660; only 1,071 Bees fans turned up for the last home game at Brentford.
