There might yet be hope. We have to take what we can but the news coming in this lunch time is that Martin Allen has left Barnet after just three games in charge to take the reins at League One Notts County. Allen had led the Bees to within goal difference of safety but has now been appointed as County boss leaving them in limbo after only joining them on a non contract basis!
County have lost their last seven games and are in the League One relegation zone so chairman Ray Trew is obviously thinking that Allen can work his magic once more. As for Barnet, it’s back to the drawing board and we have to hope in a morbid way that this dents their chances of staying up.
Off the back of a 2-1 home win over Crewe at the weekend, they travel to Bury and Gillingham next, two promotion chasers. But they could be lifted out of the bottom two should Burton lose by two or more goals at Bury tomorrow night.
The drama of this relegation scrap goes on and on!
