Former Holland international Edgar Davids could make his debut for Barnet tonight after the League Two club's new joint heaad coach was registered to play in the home fixture against Northampton.
The 39-year-old former Champions League winner has been given the number 38 shirt as he dusts down his boots to return to first-team action in the less than glamorous surroundings of Underhill.
Dutch of class: Edgar Davids is set to make his debut for League Two strugglers Barnet
Davids had been out of football since a brief stint at Championship side Crystal Palace in 2010, until joining Mark Robson in the Barnet dug-out last week.
His arrival at the club failed to spark a revival of fortunes for the Bees, as they lost 4-1 to Plymouth last weekend to remain as the bottom team in the Football League.
