As you were for Minstermen

York boss Nigel Worthington will select his side to face leaders Oxford from an unchanged squad.

Striker Ryan Bowman sits out the final game of his four-match ban, so Wes Fletcher looks set to continue in attack alongside Ryan Jarvis.

Aaron McCarey, on loan from Wolves, will keep his place in goal with Michael Ingham not yet ready to return from the hip injury that has kept him out of the last five matches.

Chris Smith (ankle) is not expected to return to training until after the Christmas programme and fellow defender Dan Parslow is out for the rest of the season due to a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament.

Oxford have received a boost with the news that striker Dave Kitson can play this weekend.

The former Reading striker picked up his 10th yellow of the campaign in their 2-1 win over Dagenham on Saturday but a club statement confirmed that his two yellows which saw him sent off against Exeter back in October will not count - leaving him available to feature.

Winger Ryan Williams will be involved after he extended his loan stay from Fulham until the end of the season.

Sean Rigg and Deane Smalley were introduced late on against the Daggers and are pushing for starts against the Minstermen.
