On Saturday, the Westleigh Park outfit side picked up a welcome point in a battling 1-1 draw at Ebbsfleet United.

In fact, Bradbury's side went close to snatching all three points in the final minutes of an enthralling game.

The Hawks boss is looking for a repeat performance and more valuable points which could lift the team out of the bottom four of the Vanarama National League.

Coupled with good displays at Braintree and Harrogate Town, there's a belief the Hawks can profit on their travels, starting against the Bees.

'I was impressed with the way we competed at Ebbsfleet,' said Bradbury.

'It was a performance we can take a lot of confidence from.

'We dug deep and made a good game of it.

'Bravery was a key word on Saturday and a willingness to play with no fear.

'I want them (the players) to go out at Barnet and express themselves again.'

Bradbury is likely to stick with the system that has served them best so far.

That involves Nicke Kabamba playing a lone striker role, supported by the pace of youngster Aaron Cosgrave.

The pair proved a handful for Ebbsfleet, with Cosgrave celebrating his first senior start by scoring the Hawks' goal.

'Aaron came in, played wide for us and proved a handful,' added Bradbury.

'He got his reward scoring on his debut.

'Along with Nicke Kabamba he gave them lots of problems.'
