The Football League Paper - - FA CUP THIRD ROUND - By Ben Baker

IN­TERIM man­ager Rossi Eames is now the favourite to be­come Barnet boss full­time, hav­ing taken charge of the side since Martin Allen’s de­par­ture last month.

Eames and as­sis­tant Henry New­man have worked to­gether af­ter Allen left to take over at Na­tional League Eastleigh, and 31year-old Eames could be set for the job per­ma­nently hav­ing helped the Bees to vic­tory over then-lead­ers Ply­mouth Ar­gyle last Mon­day.

He is tipped for the role ahead of former Mill­wall and Wolves boss Kenny Jack­ett, with Sol Campbell, in what would be his first man­age­rial role, and Ron­nie Moore the other con­tenders for the po­si­tion.

Mean­while, Eames and New­man have been im­pressed by new quar­tet Ri­cardo San­tos, David Tu­tonda – both 21-year-old de­fend­ers – 24-year-old striker Simeon Aki­nola and mid­fielder Dan Sweeney, 22, who have all ar­rived at the Hive since the start of the Jan­uary trans­fer win­dow.
