Hosts Barnet will hope to have deadly marksman Shaq Coulthirst back in the side for tomorrow’s visit of Colchester United.

Coulthirst has plundered nine goals already this season, including seven in League Two (in his last nine outings).

Barnet’s cause has certainly not been helped by the former Tottenham trainee sitting out the last two games, at Blackburn (3-1 defeat in the FA Cup) and at Accrington (4-1 league loss) due to injury.

But the 23-year-old front-runner has been back in training this week and could start against the U’s.

The Bees, without a win in their last 12 games, a lean spell stretching back two months, still have other injury woes however.

Jamie Stephens (knee), Curtis Weston (knee) and John Akinde (hamstring) are unlikely to return in time for this weekend, while ex-Colchester right-back Richard Brindley is a long-term casualty with a foot injury. He is yet to make his Barnet debut since his summer switch from the U’s.

Ipswich Town host Sheffield Wednesday in a televised Championship clash (Sky Sports) tomorrow night.

Episode One: Stuart Watson and Andy Warren discuss Ipswich Town’s draw at Hull City, hear from Mick McCarthy and Jordan Spence and make the first pitches for football’s Room 101.

Jordan Spence has been telling his Ipswich Town team-mates just how much of a threat he is in front of goal - and the defender is delighted to be proving his point on the field.

Suffolk FA Women’s Cup Second Round

Ipswich Athletic 0

Ipswich Town Ladies Development side 14

Ipswich Town Ladies Development side progressed to the next round of the Suffolk FA Cup with a massive 14-0 thumping of Suffolk league side Ipswich Athletic, writes Liam Young.

Focus on the strengths, recognise the weaknesses and enjoy the ride.

“We might not be the best, but we keep going. It’s an endearing quality we have.”

Watch match highlights of Ipswich Town’s 2-2 draw at Hull City on Saturday.

A point at Hull City should not be seen as anything other than a good result ordinarily and the fact that we gained that point with a late equaliser certainly felt better than a loss. But were they not there for the taking on the day?

It was certainly an eventful day for David McGoldrick.

Jordan Spence believes his late leveller at Hull shows the character of the Ipswich Town squad.
