CLEVELAND Taylor and Lee Cox will be among the ex-professionals hoping to cause an FA Trophy shock this weekend for Coalville Town at York City.

Left-back Taylor, 34, has more than 400 appearances at pro level to his name, having turned out for Bolton, Scarborough, Scunthorpe, Carlisle, Brentford, Burton, St Johnstone and Grimsby in the past.

He also had a spell with City’s National League North neighbours Harrogate Town, played in the Championship for Scunthorpe and is an ex-Jamaica under-23 international.

Midfielder Cox, 27, played 179 times at pro level for Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Swindon, Oxford, Plymouth and Stevenage, including a spell in the Scottish Premier League.

He missed last weekend’s 4-2 Evo-Stik Northern League premier division defeat at Lancaster City, however, with the Ravens hoping he will return for the Bootham Crescent tie.

The other ex-Football League pros now on Coalville’s books are Ollie Bassett (two starts for Yeovil in League Two), Kyle Dixon (two sub outings for Notts County), Blair Anderson (one sub appearance for Crawley in League One) and Jermain Hollis (one sub cameo for Kidderminster in League Two 12-and-a-half years ago).

Alex Howes, 17, is also currently on loan with the part-time Leicestershire outfit, having played twice for parent club Notts County last term.

Along with Cox, four other players - Hollis, Reuben Desrosiers, Alex Dean and Nathan Dixon - were absent from the squad that lost to Lancaster.

Monserrat international striker Massiah McDonald will be missing too tomorrow, having joined Stafford Rangers on loan.

Coalville will arrive in North Yorkshire, meanwhile, having plundered 12 goals in their last three games with the Lancaster loss bring preceded by victories at Buxton (5-3) and Alvechurch (5-1) in the Intergro League Cup and Trophy respectively.

The Owen Street Sports Ground side have also only failed to net in one of their last 20 matches, with former Grantham and Loughborough Dynamo marksman Nathan Watson the leading scorer on 15 goals this season, netting nine times in the last eight matches.

At the other end of the pitch, the statistics are less impressive.

Matthew Coton, the son of former Manchester City keeper Tony, is in goal, but only bottom-of-the-table Sutton Coldfield Town (62) have conceded more times in their division during 2017/18 than 16th-placed Coalville.

The Ravens have shipped 44 goals in the league at an exact average of two per game.

Coalville are managed by ex-Carlton Town, Hucknall Town, Stamford and Quorn boss Tom Brookbanks, who is in his third full season at the helm after gaining promotion to the Evo-Stik premier division via the play-offs in 2016.

The club have only reached the Trophy’s first round proper once, but did progress to that stage of the FA Cup when they first entered the competition in 2004, losing 1-0 at Wycombe Wanderers.
