City wait on Wes

York City are hopeful striker Wes Fletcher will be available for their weekend visit to Stevenage.

"There was no way I was going to risk him being out for a few weeks" - Nigel Worthington
The 23-year-old had to be withdrawn halfway through the Johnstone's Paint Trophy 2-0 defeat to Barnsley after reporting a tightening of his hamstring.

Fletcher was actually making his first start since suffering medial ligament damage
at Portsmouth in March.

"Hopefully, Wes might be all right for Saturday because losing him probably affected us a bit," manager Nigel Worthington told The Press. "He had a tight hamstring, though, so there was no way I was going to risk him being out for a few weeks by keeping him on."

Meanwhile, Worthington was largely happy with the performance at Oakwell despite the disappointment of another first round cup exit.

"I thought our energy, commitment and quality, at times, was excellent," he added. "The way we knocked the ball about and took Barnsley on was very, very good."

The Minstermen once again enjoyed another superb following with well over five hundred of their supporters making the trip and offering them constant backing.
