David Livermore is a fitness doubt for Barnet ahead of their clash with Accrington, who could hand a debut to new signing James McCarten.
Former Millwall midfielder Livermore lasted just 12 minutes of the 2-2 draw at Crewe last weekend before hobbling off with a side strain and he is unlikely to be fit to face Stanley.
Nicky Deverdics is hoping to take his place if manager Ian Hendon persists with a three-man midfield, while striker Jake Hyde could come into the side if the Bees revert to a 4-4-2 formation.
Target man Ben Wright is in contention for a debut after signing on loan from Championship strugglers Peterborough.
Defender Ismail Yakubu is again close to fitness after eight games out with a back injury and may make his overdue return at Underhill, while veteran striker Paul Furlong is out for another fortnight with his eye problem.
Accrington team news
Accrington defender James McCarten joined on loan from Premier League side Everton on Thursday after Stanley had a transfer embargo.
The 19-year-old will come into immediate contention for a starting berth at Underhill as Stanley look to improve on a run of one win in their last seven outings.
On-loan Blackburn youngster Johnny Flynn, who impressed on international duty for Northern Ireland Under 21s recently, is also battling for a place in Coleman's back-four.
John Mullin is back in the first-team fold after recovering from a troublesome ankle problem, but Alan Burton (ankle) and Leam Richardson (groin) are unlikely to figure.
