Possible attacking wide role for Lanre Oyebanjo
2:32pm Monday 31st December 2012 in Sport
LANRE OYEBANJO could be poised for a stint as an attacking wide player for York City after impressing on the flank against Fleetwood Town.
Oyebanjo has previously played at right-back, as a midfielder and in the centre of defence, and the former Histon defender patrolled the right flank as a 70th-minute replacement for Alex Rodman.
Mills said: “Lanre is direct and, when we saw Matty Blair was getting a bit of joy down the right at Fleetwood, we knew Lanre could do exactly the same.
“He’s got pace and when he gets going he’s very difficult to stop. He also gets in good positions.
“He made runs inside the centre-halves a few times but the passes were not quite good enough to play him in. He’s a strong player and he’s an option for me up there because his set-piece deliveries are always good as well.”
