Barnet v York City

25 August 2012 11:56
York City travel to the capital to take on Barnet this weekend after coming away from Morecambe with their first point of the season last time out.

Both clubs are searching for their first win of the season following a draw and loss in their opening two games.

The visitors are still without longer-term injury victims David McGurk and Scott Kerr while strikers Oli Johnson and Jamie Reed also miss out.

York manager Gary Mills hasn't yet been able to add to his ranks as he continues to look for additional firepower.

“We are working hard to bring one or maybe two players in to strengthen us," he told The Press.

"We’ve been knocked back with a few players that have gone on to join other League clubs and it’s not always as easy as it might seem to get a player when you are looking for the right ones.

“I feel we do need to strengthen with Jamie Reed and Oli Johnson being injured because we are light on strikers, so we are trying to address that.

“We’ve done well over the three games and, while there’s always room for improvement, I thought 3-1 flattered Wycombe last Saturday and I’ve been happy with the other performances," Mills continued. “There’s a long, long way to go to improve on what we have done and we will be okay. I look at some teams in the division and wonder whether there’s more to come from them but, when I look at us, I know we can get better.”

Barnet could give a debut to ex-Arsenal and Hibernian goalkeeper Graham Stack while Steve Kabba and Danny Senda are both struggling with knee injuries.
