Martin Allen got home late last night (Monday) with the good news that the surgeon decided not to operate after extensive tests.
Therefore, Martin can return to work on Thursday and will be back at The Hive for Saturday’s EFL League Two fixture against Crewe Alexandra. Tests are ongoing, but this is good news.
Saturday’s game will be a special occasion with Martin returning to work and the Bees just two points shy of the play-off places following Saturday’s comeback at high-flying Grimsby Town.
In Monday’s open letter Martin spoke of the special atmosphere following the Bees’ win at Welling United during the title-winning campaign of 2014/15 and it would be fantastic to build on that and get The Hive rocking at 3pm on Saturday.
