City's time to take the chair

Four games into their league campaign and still looking for their first win, unbeaten York City host Wycombe Wanderers at Bootham Crescent this weekend. The Minstermen have thus far recorded a quartet of largely frustrating draws, including last week in their worst performance to date at Exeter City. However, but for problems at the back and more specifically between the posts, their return would have been comfortably higher and probably found them closely rivalling their latest opponents in the table. The Chairboys have enjoyed a great start to proceedings with nine points from their first available twelve, having only narrowly avoided relegation on the final day of last season.

Vital Quotes:

"They have had a very good start and we won't be underestimating them," York boss Nigel Worthington told The Press. "We know what we are up against and, if we don`t do our jobs, individually and collectively, we will be in for a shock."

York City Team News:

With Wes Fletcher, Jake Hyde and Daniel Parslow happily getting back up to speed, and Lindon Meikle [illness] and Ryan Jarvis [ankle] also now recovered, York have only Northern Ireland international Josh Carson ruled out. John McCombe could though receive an early recall in defence. Otherwise, Jason Mooney, Marvin McCoy, Anthony Straker, Dave Winfield and Lewis Montrose face their former club.
York City (probable): Ingham, McCoy, Lowe, McCombe, Ilesanmi, Meikle, Penn, Summerfield, Straker, Coulson, Hyde
subs (from): Mooney, Winfield, Parslow, Montrose, Platt, Fletcher, Hirst, Jarvis

Player to watch: Marvin McCoy

The Antigua & Barbuda international comes up against his former club after leaving for Bootham Crescent in the summer.

Wycombe Wanderers Team News:

Midfielder Josh Scowen and skipper Stuart Lewis have both recently returned to action following injuries, thus increasing manager Gareth Ainsworth's squad back up to full-strength.
Wycombe Wanderers (probable): Ingram, Jombati, Pierre, Mawson, Jacobson, Cowan-Hall, Murphy, Rowe, Wood, Hayes, Craig

Player to watch: Peter Murphy

Midfielder who has already scored three times since arriving from Accrington Stanley over the summer.

Match Facts & Stats

The Minstermen have a good record in this fixture with five wins and a draw from their previous seven meetings. York have also kept five clean-sheets in those games, including last season when Ryan Bowman (penalty) and Josh Carson struck in a 2-0 success. They also won an FA Cup third round tie by the same scoreline in January 1986 - with both goals courtesy of a certain Keith Walwyn.
