Cheltenham aim for ruthless tilt against York City
11:35am Friday 1st November 2013 in Sport
CHELTENHAM Town boss Mark Yates has warned his team must have that “killer edge” if they are to beat York City tomorrow.
The Robins might be just a point above the Minstermen in the Sky Bet League Two table ahead of the game at Whaddon Road but Yates’ men have started to find their feet having beaten Morecambe 3-0 and drawn 1-1 at Northampton last weekend.
Yates believed his men should have seen off the Cobblers – disappointed that they didn’t capitalise on a number of chances – and has targeted the York game as a chance to get back to “winning ways”.
“York got a very good result on Tuesday night against Scunthorpe,” he said. “They put the game to bed very early and that’s what we need to do.
“They are a decent team with some good players. Nigel (Worthington) has managed at international level so they know the time of day but we must make sure we perform as we have done of late and if we do that then we’ll give ourselves a chance.”
Yates is hoping to welcome back the pacey Ashley Vincent and may also be able to call on midfielder Jermaine McGlashan, if required, as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury.
Craig Braham-Barrett, left with a broken nose and some loose teeth after being injured in the club’s 2-1 defeat by Rochdale, will also be in contention, but Steve Elliott, suffering with a slight knee injury, is unlikely to make it.
