Lanre Oyebanjo (knee) and Joe McNerney (knee) are missing for the Reds. Gavin Tomlin returned from injury in a friendly against AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday but won't be risked.

York City have no injury worries ahead of Saturday's fixture, but the Minstermen do come into the game having signed Middlesborough midfielder Bryn Morris on a one-month loan deal.

THE FORM GUIDE                

The Reds have won four of their last six league matches, including their last two at home by beating Leyton Orient and Luton Town. They come into the clash off the back of a 2-1 win over Hartlepool, which saw Simon Walton score from the spot and Rhys Murphy tap in from a Gwion Edwards cross for his third goal in three games.

York are currently managerless following the sacking of Russ Wilcox after failing to win in nine games. Former Stoke striker Richard Cresswell has taken over as caretaker manager and brings his side into the weekend off the back of a 3-1 home loss to AFC Wimbledon.


Mark Yates: "I think in the early weeks of the season we were guilty of worrying too much about the opposition. We are aware of York's strengths and I'm sure the players will want to put in a performance for Richard (Cresswell) but this week the focus has been on what we are going to do." 


This will be the first Football League meeting against York City on Saturday. The sides did meet in our promotion-winning campaign in 2010-11, in which we drew 1-1 at Bootham Crescent and 2-2 with the Minstermen in the final game of the season at home.
