York City are once again on their travel this weekend with the long trip to Exeter City. Following a poor start to the season, manager Nigel Worthington moved back into the transfer market this week, bringing in Championship pair George Taft (Leicester City) and Ryan Brobbel (Middlesbrough) on loan. The Minstermen have lost both away games so far, although their latest effort against Bristol Rovers was a marked improvement on their opening defeat to Dagenham & Redbridge, Ryan Jarvis scored twice at the Memorial Ground and remains the only City player to have found the net so far this season. Meanwhile, Exeter lost their unbeaten record with a poor display at Morecambe last time out.

"Wes and Sander are both 50-50 so we will see how they are tomorrow morning," manager Nigel Worthington told The Press. "Dave McGurk won't travel though and Crezzie has an eye issue we are trying to deal with at the moment so he will probably be out. He's had it for about ten days now and it's come to a bit of a head so we need to get to the bottom of it."
Defender Pat Baldwin and midfielder Liam Sercombe should both return for the Grecians as they look to maintain their 100% home record.
Exeter City (probable): Krysiak, Dawson, Coles, Baldwin, Woodman, Davies, Sercombe, Oakley, Wheeler, O`Flynn, Parkin
Liam Sercombe should return for Exeter
Former Birmingham City goalkeeper who had a brief loan stay with the Minstermen five years ago.
New signings George Taft and Ryan Brobbel are expected to go straight into the visitors' squad. However, already deprived of the suspended Ryan Bowman following his sending-off at Bristol Rovers last week, York are also set to be without the experienced Richard Cresswell due to an eye injury. Defender David McGurk has also suffered a recurrence of his hamstring problem. But striker Wes Fletcher (ankle) could be in contention along with Estonian international Sander Puri (hamstring) after both making encouraging progress.
York City (possible): Ingham, Oyebanjo, C. Smith, Taft, Davies, Parslow, Clay, Platt, Coulson, Jarvis, Chambers
subs (from): Kettings, Fyfield, Allan, Montrose, Fletcher, Puri, Brobbel, Atkinson, Dickinson, Coates
Richard Cresswell ruled out for the visitors
Big defender who has arrived after impressing City fans during a pre-season friendly with his parent club Leicester City.
York have won five and lost thirteen of their nineteen previous Football League visits to Exeter, with the only draw coming last season when the clubs shared a 1-1 encounter. Michael Coulson scored for the visitors as they lined up: Ingham, Oyebanjo, C Smith, Carlisle, Taylor, Parslow, J. Smith (Challinor), McLaughlin (Bullock), Coulson, Walker, Chambers (Blair). Meanwhile, at Conference level, York remained unbeaten in four trips, winning and drawing twice.
