Barnet manager Darren Currie says they won’t change the way they play regardless of the two division gap between them and Potters Bar Town.

The National League side visit the Pakex Stadium on Saturday for a hugely-anticipated FA Cup derby.

But after reaching the fourth round last season, in a run which saw them claim the scalps of league sides Bristol Rovers and now Premier League Sheffield United, the Bees boss is not taking the game against the Scholars lightly.

Speaking on the club's YouTube channel he said: "It's a game I want to win. I want us to play the way we want irrespective of the opponent.

"But it will be tough, they will be up for it and we have to be up for it too.
