Worthington to keep faith

York boss Nigel Worthington is expected to name an unchanged starting line-up for the fifth straight game against visitors Wycombe.

Worthington has no new injury or suspension problems as his side chase a fourth successive win in pursuit of the top seven, although striker Wes Fletcher has yet to regain full match fitness following his recent hamstring problem.

Fellow forward Ryan Jarvis is pushing for a recall, but Worthington is likely to stick with Michael Coulson and Ryan Bowman up front, the latter scoring the midweek winner at Mansfield from the penalty spot.

The Minstermen are unbeaten in their last seven league games and trail seventh-placed Southend by two points.

Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth hopes to call on captain Stuart Lewis to boost his midfield options.

The Blues skipper has missed his side's last few games with a hamstring injury but is rated as 70/30 by his manager to return to action on Saturday, a comeback which would be even more crucial for Ainsworth given Josh Scowen's absence through suspension.

Scowen serves the final game of his two-match ban for 10 yellow cards and he is joined on the sidelines by Paris Cowan-Hall who is suffering with an ankle injury.

Gary Doherty, Charles Dunne and Tommy Fletcher miss out once more for a Wycombe side just four points clear of the relegation zone.
