One step at a time for Foyle

23 February 2010 02:36
York City boss Martin Foyle was refusing to think too far ahead despite receiving a potential favourable draw in the FA Trophy semi-finals. The Minstermen will take on outsiders Salisbury City over two legs should they manage to progress through their tricky looking twice-delayed away tie at Barrow. However, Foyle will be mindful that his hometown club Salisbury actually handed York one of only five league defeats this season back in October.“The semi-final draw doesn’t interest me yet, let alone who we would meet if we reached the final because we have a very hard game at Barrow first," he told The Press. "Salisbury have also done well of late. Oxford would have been considered the hardest draw in the last round but they made six changes and went out. I think they probably made the right decision though.” And should they ultimately progress, York and current holders Stevenage Borough - who meet Kidderminster Harriers in the other semi-final tie - would be bidding to reach Wembley for a second successive season. And both would have the benefit of home advantage for the second-legs.But Foyle was again remaining cautious: "It does help if you are at home for the second leg, but not if you lose the first match 3-0.”
