Barnet midfielder Andy Hessenthaler will be out for three weeks with a torn calf muscle.

Hessenthaler suffered the injury a fortnight ago against Darlington and Paul Fairclough will continue to be without the veteran's services for another few weeks.

The 41-year-old will be hopeful of playing again for The Bees before the end of the League Two campaign.

Meanwhile, defender Adam Gross is also out of this weekend's game against leaders Hartlepool United at Underhill.

The left-back injured his ankle in last Saturday's victory over Darlington.

However, Jason Puncheon and Ian Hendon could be fit to feature after ankle and toe injuries respectively.
