Minstermen look to unseat Chairboys

York City must again call upon their impressive away form when visiting a much-improved Wycombe Wanderers this weekend. The Minstermen have still amassed more points on their travels than in front of their own supporters this season and need to once more discover that kind of resolve against opponents who have won eight of their last twelve league games. The most recent of these was a 1-0 victory at former leaders Gillingham earlier this week, an outcome that witnessed the Chairboys rising above their latest visitors in the table. Wycombe also handed York their first defeat since returning to the Football League back in August, courtesy of a 3-1 scoreline at Bootham Crescent on the opening day of the season.

Vital Quotes:

"We're not pressing any panic buttons, we believe in our ability," assistant manager Darron Gee told BBC Radio York. "Once you start to panic it is a dangerous game. We know what it takes to stay in this division and be successful."

Wycombe Team News:

Central defenders Gary Doherty (back) and Leon Johnson (knee) are both training again but unlikely to be considered while Danny Foster, Grant Basey and midfielder Matt Bloomfield are definitely out. Nine-goal leading marksman Matt McClure could return at the expense of former Bristol Rovers striker Jo Kuffour.
Wycombe Wanderers (probable): Archer, Harriman, Stewart, Winfield, Dunne, Grant, Lewis, Scowen, Wood, McClure, Morgan

Player to watch: Matt McClure

Northern Ireland under-21 international striker with four goals in his last five appearances.

York City Team News:

Ashley Chambers returns to the visitors squad and will probably make the bench following a recent stomach injury. But Lanre Oyebanjo, Chris Doig and Michael Coulson remain out and have since been joined on the sidelines by defender David McGurk and striker Ben Everson, who are currently struggling with hamstring injuries.
York City (probable): Ingham, Obeng, Smith, O'Connell, Parslow, Kerr, Potts, McLaughlin, Blair, Walker, Rodman
subs (from): Musselwhite, Fyfield, McReady, Challinor, McDaid, Reed, Allan, Bullock, Johnson, Chambers

Player to watch: Michael Ingham

Bad mistake last weekend but even so just one short of 100 clean-sheets for the club.

Match Facts & Stats

The Minstermen have won once and drawn once in five previous visits to Adams Park. Their most recent encounter was in January 1999 when Richard Cresswell and Barry Jones netted in a 2-1 triumph. The line-up was: Mimms, McMillan, Jones, Barras, Himsworth, Connelly, Jordan, Tinkler, Hall, Cresswell, Rowe
