Wealdstone assistant manager Matt Saunders feels they're underdogs despite having a higher league position than rivals Barnet.

The Stones will welcome the Bees to Grosvenor Vale this afternoon (3pm) as they look to build on their 2-2 draw with Bromley on Good Friday.

Saunders knows they have a job to do as they continue planning for next season.

“It’s a shame. It would be nice to have fans there, it would be brilliant, as they would be the extra man.

“It’s a big game, we’ve got to put that to the back of our minds as we’ve got a job to do.

“Reality of it is that we probably go into it as underdogs. Everyone knows what they’re spending but I believe we can bridge the game and it’s a game we want to win.”

He added: “We have to instill good habits in the people that will remain. People will come and go but we need to do that for next season."
