LEICESTER City goalkeeper Carl Pentney has completed a one-month loan move to KitKat Crescent.

Pentney, 18, was a member of Leicester's FA Premier League Group B title-winning academy side last season and will be on the bench tomorrow for York City's Blue Square Premier curtain-raiser against Cambridge United.

About his signing, City boss Billy McEwan said: "He's well over six foot and we will be looking to see how he does for us. He needs to come out of a situation at Leicester where there are four or five 'keepers in front of him because you can get disillusioned quickly if you are not playing."

Pentney will provide cover for Tom Evans in tomorrow's game, but McEwan added that he expects to give "five or six players" their City debuts.

New signings Mark Robinson, Stuart Elliott, Onome Sodje, Chris Beardsley and Carl Jones all look strong contenders for starting places.

McEwan's biggest decision might be whether to pair 20-year-old Jones with David McGurk in the centre of defence or opt instead for the height of Ben Purkiss to counter the aerial threat of new Cambridge striker Leo Fortune-West. Purkiss' place at right-back would then be taken by Darren Craddock.

About facing 36-year-old target man Fortune-West, McEwan added: "He's a big, awkward customer who will make things difficult for our defenders. We've got to keep him out of the box."
