Match preview Vs York City


Date: 30-11-10gif Venue: Aggboroughgif Kick off: 19:45hrs
This game is looking a touch doubtful of going ahead tonight with snow forecast later today and the hard frost continuing.  We have had the covers on the pitch since before Saturdays game at Barrow was called off and later today John Davies will be bringing his Hire-it heaters up to Aggborough to blow warm air across the pitch.  Let's hope it works but another hard frost during the game will soon harden the pitch again and the ref could then call it off.

If it all does go to plan then for the first time in weeks we should be doing this with a full squad to pick from and also the two new signings that were made late on Friday afternoon.  With minutes to spare before the 5.00pm deadline in came Mitchell McPike from Birmingham City and soon after Craig Lindfield from Accrington Stanley and they should at least make the bench.

Last Monday Marc Williams returned to Wrexham after three months on loan.  As a parting gift he banged in the winning goal against Eastbourne and then left the field to pave the way for Jamille Matt to make his home debut.  Matt is still quite raw looking and is someway from becoming a regular partner for Lee Morris so Steve Burr is now obviously looking for another option with Lindfield.

Back for us will be Jack Byrne, the last player to finish that crop of suspensions that we had recently, and he will probably start on the bench with Burr reluctant to change a winning side too much.

York will arrive here fresh from a FA Cup win at Darlington and a trip to Bolton in the next round to look forward to.  I won't say it should be us going there after we lost to them in the earlier round because we didn't deserve to and so good luck to City.  Bastards :)

City could be without a couple of players for the game.  Daniel Parslow missed the Darlington Cup game following cartilage damage to his voice box during their win at home to Southport last Tuesday and will still be doubtful for tomorrow.  Jonathan Smith limped out of the game on Saturday after a midfield challenge that left him looking doubtful and Ashley Chambers played with six stitches in an arm wound while Michael Rankine played through a stomach bug but still set up both of Yorks goals.

If the game does go ahead, apart from being very cold, I'm expecting us to make a bit more of an effort this time and to go for the win.  I know City will have other ideas but with the exertions of Saturday and the elation of drawing a Premiership side away I don't think they'll be up for it.

We'll see.
