ASSISTANT manager Micky Cummins has suggested that summer signing Kieran Green could be handed a start for York City against Scarborough Athletic tomorrow.

Triallist Liam Smith and centre-back Tom Allan are also in line to get more time on the field, with the former sitting out Wednesday's game against Hartlepool United.

Ex-Gateshead midfielder Green played the first half against Leeds United, the second against Bolton and the final half-hour against Pools.

Allan has had the most extended run-out so far, featuring for an hour in both of the opening two fixtures and half an hour midweek.

Cummins said: "We're going to change personnel and have a look at lads who haven't got many minutes.

"It's an opportunity to look at other bodies and give them minutes, fitness and match prep."

City were knocked out of the North Riding County FA Senior Cup semi-final in March by Boro, who went on to win the competition.

A game of limited opportunities, the Seadogs won the tie 3-0 on penalties following a scoreless draw.

Boro - who compete in the top tier of the Northern Premier League premier division - will be the lowest-tier opposition City have faced yet.

Manager John Deacey has been busy moulding the squad over the summer. Notably, he has brought in five players from Tadcaster Albion - including top scorer Joe Lumsden and former York City Academy defender Harry Coates - as well as Leeds United Under-18 defender Isaac Assenso from Northern Premier League east division play-off contenders Ossett United.

"It will be a tough test, being a derby," Cummins predicted.

"We played them in the North Riding Cup last year and they gave us problems that game.

"Again, it's an opportunity to get minutes into lads.

"It's a tough one. Their style of play is similar to what we're going to face this season."
