York City host Hull City in their latest pre-season friendly this evening (kick-off 7.30pm).

"We want to get the maximum we can from the game as we bring our full focus on Tranmere" - Nigel Worthington
The Minstermen were checking on the progress of goalkeeper Michael Ingham from a groin strain ahead of the meeting.

But Daniel Parslow, Wes Fletcher, Josh Carson and new midfielder Luke Summerfield remain out. Manager Nigel Worthington will therefore probably draft in a couple of youth players.

"As far as the game is concerned, we want to make sure we do well and get the maximum we can from the game as we bring our full focus on Tranmere," he told The Press. "Everything up to now, in the first three weeks, has been very, very good. Scotland was excellent and there was lots of good stuff. I am very pleased with the way it is shaping up."

Counterpart Steve Bruce has already promised to deliver a full squad, and so the likes of Tom Huddlestone and Tom Ince should be treading the Bootham Crescent surface.

York City (from): Mooney, McCoy, Lowe, Winfield, Ilesanmi, Meikle, Penn, Straker, Jarvis, Coulson, McCombe, Montrose, Platt, Murray, Hyde, Ingham

York City v Spennymoor Town

York City would equal their impressive winning sequence of four years ago if they can achieve a sixth successive victory against promotion rivals Spennymoor Town at Bootham Crescent.

Their spectacular midweek 5-3 triumph at AFC Telford United had followed earlier wins against Bradford Park Avenue, Darlington and North Ferriby United [twice].

That witnesses York now fourth in the table and within six points of second-placed Harrogate Town, although still well short of clear leaders
