Tommy Widdrington’s Shots look to carry momentum from Saturday’s win over Altrincham into another tough clash against high flying Barnet.

The Shots will end a run of three games in a week at the EBB Stadium, having lost one against Fylde and won one against Altrincham of the three game run already.

Coming to the EBB Stadium this time is third placed Barnet. Founded in 1888, The Bees will be making the trip out of their north London home the Hive, looking to solidify their place in the top three of the National League.


The Shots fell short after a good performance at the Hive earlier in the season. Danny Collinge and Nickie Kabamba scored either side of half time to give the Bees a 2-0 lead, but Lorent Tolaj halved the lead just before the hour, and after a strong last half an hour the Shots were unable to find a leveller.

Aldershot will be hoping for a repeat of Barnet’s last trip to the EBB Stadium, as a strong display looked as though it wouldn’t have a winning goal for the Shots, but Inih Effiong and Tommy Willard scored in added time at the end of the second half to give the Shots all the points in a 3-1 win.


It took Barnet nearly two months to taste defeat following victory over the Shots, progressing past Aveley and Curzon in the FA Cup in the process. Their first defeat since before the Aldershot game came at the hands of Chesterfield, but that defeat on 11th November saw them go on a run which wouldn’t see them taste victory in the National League again until December 23rd, when they beat Boreham Wood 6-0.

Like the Shots, Barnet forced Football League opposition to a replay in the second round of the FA Cup, but were beaten at the Hive by Newport. The Bees are one of just a few National League sides who remain in the FA Trophy.



In the dugout for the high flying Bees is Dean Brennan. Formerly of a local London side Hendon, Brennan made appearances for a number of teams during his playing days, such as Sheffield Wednesday, Luton Town and Stevenage (to name a few).

As a manager he stepped into the dugout as a caretaker manager for Hemel Hempstead Town in 2010, and became permanent manager after he left Dunstable Town as a player/manager in 2012. His first season saw Hemel Hempstead lose the playoff final, and the next saw him win the league title by 10 points.

Dean Brennan and his assistant – one Stuart Maynard – joined Billericay Town in 2018, and went to Kingstonian in 2019, before joining Wealdstone later in 2019. Stuart Maynard went on to have a huge impact at Wealdstone, but in 2021 Brennan joined Barnet months after he had resigned from Wealdstone.
