Team News: York City v Pools

9 April 2015

We take a look at the latest from both camps ahead of Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two game against York City at Bootham Crescent (3pm kick-off).

Ronnie Moore will wait as long as possible before making a decision over the fitness of front man Jordan Hugill ahead of the weekend trip to York City.

The on-loan star picked up an eye injury very early on in the game against Southend United on Easter Monday and is due to see a specialist on Friday to determine his availability for Saturday.

Scott Fenwick made a scoring return for the Reserves on Wednesday night after seven weeks out with an ankle injury but Saturday’s game is likely to come too soon for the striker.

The same is applicable with Matthew Bates who also played ninety minutes for the second string on Wednesday but he still needs to build his fitness after two months on the sidelines.

York boss Russ Wilcox will hope to have striker Emile Sinclair available for selection if he can shake off a thigh problem which kept him out of their 0-0 draw at Oxford United on Monday.

Wilcox kept faith with long-serving keeper Michael Ingham for the visit to The Kassam Stadium on Monday despite the return of Bobby Olejnik, opting instead to use other loan players in his permitted five.

Stephane Zubar was utilised in an unfamiliar left wing-back role at Oxford but Femi Ilesanmi is challening to fill that position on Saturday, while Michael Coulson is also staking his claims for the berth.

Josh Carson won't be in contention for the weekend after he suffered a concussion in an incident away from playing duties on Saturday night.
