However, it only has one exit so delays can be expected post-match. Spaces are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. 

Alternatively, there’s on-street parking available around the ground, plus Canons Park Tube Station has all-day spaces for £2 on a Saturday.

The nearest pub is Moranos – an Irish themed wine bar – on Station Road, which is only a short walk from Canons Park Underground Station.

LAST TIME WE MET 

The last meeting between the two sides ended in a 1-0 victory for the Bees thanks to a second half strike from John Akinde on Saturday 10 September. 

The big forward’s goal decided a game which was scarce of clear-cut chances. An end-to-end opening 20 minutes finished with defender George Taft being forced off with a hamstring injury and he hasn’t been seen in a Stags’ shirt since as he continues to recover from that muscle injury. 

Stags ended the first half in the ascendancy with the combination of winger CJ Hamilton and striker Danny Rose causing problems for the Bees’ defence. 

After left-back Mal Benning’s fierce drive was turned behind by a strong hand from Barnet stopper Josh Vickers, striker Matt Green saw his header from the resulting corner cleared off the line. 

Despite Stags emerging for the second half with increased vigour as they probed for an opener, it was Barnet who dealt what turned out to be the killer blow on 57 minutes. 

After midfielder Mitchell Rose gave the ball away in midfield, Akinde drove past defender Krystian Pearce before planting his shot beyond Scott Shearer in the Stags’ goal. 

Stags attempted to salvage something from the match in the remaining half-an-hour, but couldn’t carve out a real chance. 

Substitute Darius Henderson came closest as he headed Kevan Hurst’s cross towards goal, but Vickers got down well to hold on to the three points.

TOTAL DISTANCE 

The exact distance between One Call Stadium and The Hive Stadium is 129 miles when going via the M1, and takes approximately two hours and 26 minutes.
