Injured pair Femi Ilesanmi and Jake Hyde should be back for Sheffield United friendly

YORK City boss Nigel Worthington expects Femi Ilesanmi and Jake Hyde to be back in pre-season action at the weekend.

Both players limped out of last night's 2-1 friendly defeat to Nottingham Forest after suffering ankle injuries but Worthington made light of both incidents and demanded that the two summer signings "grit their teeth" and carry on if they encounter the same problems during the up-and coming SkyBet League Two season.

International strikers Jamie Mackie and Simon Cox cancelled out Tom Platt's 50th-minute opening goal for the Minstermen with Worthington quick to put City fans' minds at ease regarding the condition of Ilesanmi and Hyde afterwards.

The Minstermen can ill afford any more players in the treatment room with only 16 professionals available for selection last night and Worthington said: "It's a couple of rolled ankles and I don't have much sympathy with injuries like that.

"Any footballer has just got to deal with things like that and I expect them both back on Saturday against Sheffield United. We will be going into war in a week and a half's time and I would expect them to stay on then, grit their teeth and have a never-say-die attitude."

Midfielder Luke Summerfield is 50-50 for the final warm-up match against the Blades having missed the last three friendlies with a minor knee problem but the City chief is not actively seeking to strengthen his squad prior to the 2014/15 season's curtain-raising trip to Tranmere a week on Saturday.

He added: "No manager ever stops looking, but I'm more than happy with our numbers. Pars (Dan Parslow) is on his way back having played 45 minutes with the youth team this week and he will get another 45 minutes with the youth team next week."

Following 2-0 defeats to Sheffield Wednesday and Hull in pre-season, Worthington was again left to reflect on the class of higher-league opposition in front of goal following Forest's victory.

Delivering his verdict on last night's display, the Bootham Crescent boss said: "I was very pleased with the performance. We created a number of chances but their finishing just showed the difference in the two teams.

"Championship players get half a chance and it ends up in the back of your net. We had half chances and, sometimes, we didn't hit the target with them.

"But our attitude, work ethic and some of our play was very good and I was really pleased with our shape."

Worthington also pointed out that Platt's goal was the reward for his pre-season efforts.

"Somebody told me about 15 months ago that Tom Platt can scores goals and now I believe them," the City chief initially joked before pointing out: "He has played really well in pre-season. I've been delighted with him and it's now about keeping that going."

if we are to go by femi's reaction at having to come off, wanting a rest was the last thing on his mind.

a frustrated Player punching the side of the dug out would indicated he was enjoying his game and may was be worried with an injury so close to the season starting .

enjoyable game with a goalkeeping error resulting in our visitors opening goal. again.

plenty to look forwardto this season.

I was only quoting NW's remark, I don't care what he was punching, They have to grit their teeth remark is usually used when a person should carry on with whatever they are doing ,and man up. unless you have a different meaning to the remark.

Bill what you have written is your usual speculation and not being there to see the facts for yourself, both players limped off injured and not able to carry on, not to risk further injury. We appear to be in the same situation as last season with a thread bear squad judging by the subs bench. I for one do not want to be waiting until January til our fortunes pick up

As I posted on here a couple of months ago G3 artificial surfaces are the way forward for many reasons , It has now been approved by all 3 conference leagues from 15/16 season they have approved the surface can be used, this follows the FA approval that all rounds of the FA Cup can also be used, I hope YORK CITY will now consider laying this surface Wigan RL club I believe uses it , using a G3 surface will protect playing conditions for City.

Still very much undecided about artificial turf for reasons of it being a Petrochemical product, it will eventually break down and end up in landfill sites.There will be no wildlife benefits, and it also gets very hot in the summer and has to be hosed down, also if birds poop on it ,it will not be easy to clean.When water runs through the Artificial turf it could cause pollution of chemicals coming from the product. On the other hand there are lower maintenance costs, pesticide free, and it is much more durable than grass, and saves water.One of the main factors in my opinion would be that it is possible that there would be far fewer injuries with not having wet grass and mud to slip and slide on.

Yorkie as someone with limited knowledge of the make up of a G3 product , I must take it as read that those that do,
have taken every possible care to make sure it comes within acceptable standards , FIFA, UAFA, the FA, and other interested parties have given their approval , If you are worried about wildlife one only have to walk the local farms during the spring and see the pollutants and artificial stimulants sprayed on crops that have adverse effects on wildlife, being from a farming family I am well aware what spraying can do to wildlife, the effect G3 have is minute,
There are hundreds of clubs around the world many from hot countries using G3 so from the heat prospective I don't think its use holds no problems, Im no expert I just see the advantages , low maintenance , im not sure about injuries but as the surface is constant
it might be easy on the legs. I am for it and it is the future that is for sure. good hearing from you.

Back to the football - 3rd friendly of the summer at BC and IMO there is progress:

Femi - was really impressive covering across for the CB's before he had to go off & I think NW has had another crass communications blip with his comments above.
Straker - was positive in getting behind the Forest defense and got some good crosses in before dropping back to cover for Femi and did not look out of place at left back either.
Meikle - was again very good going forward & covered back well. Good skills & work ethic.
Hyde - very good hold up play & was unlucky not to get a goal. As with Femi, I would rather he did not trash his ankle in a friendly.
McCoy - looks like he is settling in well and dealt well with the good movement of the Forest attack & midfield.
Jury out on the goalkeepers!
All the center backs were exposed by the Forest movement off the ball & their speed of thought. Several times they were turned with ease. 1st goal - Lowe just did not see their player drop off rather than contest the header and dropped it straight to him, seconds later the ball was in the net.
Penn - was at best disappointing, giving away numerous needless fouls without getting close to making a good tackle.
Platt - after months of derision he was miles better than Penn, nipped in and took the ball and set up quick counters with decisive and accurate passing & even put the ball in the net with ease. Good in defense as well and was unlucky to be taken off - for me Penn should have been pulled and given a public slap.
Coulson - had a better game this time out making some very good runs and linked well with the others up front.
In general, the forward play caused the Forest defense quite a few problems, created some good chances and we could have earned a draw. Defensively, not as solid as the end of last season but I doubt if any L2 team will have the speed and movement of Forest.
Not long before the real test starts :-)

He was quick to say they will be available for the Sheffield match ,
if we are to go by femi's reaction at having to come off, wanting a rest was the last thing on his mind.

a frustrated Player punching the side of the dug out would indicated he was enjoying his game and may was be worried with an injury so close to the season starting .

enjoyable game with a goalkeeping error resulting in our visitors opening goal. again.

plenty to look forwardto this season.
I was only quoting NW's remark, I don't care what he was punching, They have to grit their teeth remark is usually used when a person should carry on with whatever they are doing ,and man up. unless you have a different meaning to the remark.
Bill what you have written is your usual speculation and not being there to see the facts for yourself, both players limped off injured and not able to carry on, not to risk further injury. We appear to be in the same situation as last season with a thread bear squad judging by the subs bench. I for one do not want to be waiting until January til our fortunes pick up
You are quite right I was not there , along with 3 thousand others, I was not speculating I was quoting a comment by NW, I made no reference to the squad size you did, God help us if you was running the club we would be bankrupt in by now, business is about money ,and how you spend it,
the club can only spend on projected income,
Your nonsense about me running the club and bankruptcy is another irrelevant argument from you, fact is we need a few players on loan or permanent. Come the first game of the season if we go behind and need impact changes that would not of been capable with last night's squad, I doubt NW has blown the budget so I think he needs to start wheeling and dealing
I'm sure NW will take your advice , well done for drawing his attention to something he has overlooked. it certainly takes an experienced person like yourself to be in the wings,
Thank you for your kind words Bill, where would we be without my experience and attention to detail :-)
