Injury concerns for City

York City have further injury concerns following their 2-1 pre-season friendly defeat to Nottingham Forest at Bootham Crescent.

Both defender Femi Ilesanmi and striker Jake Hyde were forced out of the action as the visitors came from behind courtesy of second-half goals from Jamie Mackie and Simon Cox. Those cancelled out an earlier strike from midfielder Tom Platt.

Hyde actually saw a couple of early opportunities for the hosts but lifted over from good work by Ilesanmi before turning behind Anthony Straker's cross.

Forest counterpart Mackie was in turn denied by the covering Ilesanmi before Michael Coulson forced a near post block from Bulgarian goalkeeper Dimitar Evtimov. York then lost left-back Ilesanmi to a suspected ankle injury and he was replaced by Ryan Jarvis.

Home keeper Jason Mooney next reacted well to keep out both Mackie and Cox while Keith Lowe made a timely clearance on the line after Jorge Grant was found by Jamie Paterson.

Coulson soon tried his luck from the edge of the area but Evtimov proved equal to it as the interval was reached with the scoreline still blank.

York were soon on the attack following the resumption with Evtimov turning aside from Coulson and John McCombe heading over.

However, the opening goal wasn't long coming with Platt turning in Lindon Meikle's low cross from the right - although the visitors instantly responded with Mackie following up after Mooney could only parry a long-range effort from Grant.

And six minutes later it was Stuart Pearce's side moving ahead when Cox received from Mackie and avoided McCombe before finishing from around six-yards.

The Minstermen suffered another injury blow when the struggling Hyde was replaced by Cameron Murray midway through the second-half.

Substitute Tyler Walker then wasted a couple of decent opportunities for the visitors while replacement keeper Michael Ingham denied Mackie at his near post.

Fellow substitute Jarvis later sidefooted wide of the far post from six-yards as the Championship side maintained their narrow advantage.
