YORK City Knights trio Will Sharp, Joe Porter and Jason Bass have all recovered from injuries and are set to feature against London Broncos tomorrow afternoon.

Outside backs Sharp and Bass both missed the defeat at Halifax last weekend through minor hamstring strains while a ankle knock prevented prop forward Porter from making an appearance at the Shay.

And, as the Knights prepare for their first competitive home match since September, head coach James Ford was delighted to be able to call upon the trio once more.

"They will both be in the side," Ford said of Bass and Sharp.

"I think that Bassy has shown some really positive signs this year and he's taken another big step forward. I thought that we missed him a little bit at the weekend.

"And, I think we're just a better side with Will Sharp in it. He's one of our best players, he comes up with big plays at big times, he save tries, he's quick out of yardage and I'm sure that he'll score plenty of tries for us this year.

On Porter, Ford added: "There's good news on Porter. He's trained with us this week and he's looked a handful and he did against Toulouse as well, so it's been a blow to lose Joe. It's great to have him back as an option."

Fellow prop Ronan Dixon is also back in the squad, though it's thought that a return against London may prove to be too soon for him.

York will be without hooker Kriss Brining who suffered a head knock against Halifax and didn't resume for the second half of the game.

There's no time scale yet given for his return, with the priority being his well-being having suffered a concussion last season.

Ford said: "It's not good for Kriss to be honest. He got concussed last year and he's picked up a concussion again this year.

"I'm not sure if it is mandatory, but the club certainly wants to look after Kriss, so he's going for a neurologist for a check-up.

"We'll leave it with our medical team. The players health and well-being comes first and foremost and we'll do whatever we can to get Kriss back to full fitness."

Reiss Butterworth, York's new loanee from Huddersfield Giants, is set to debut by taking Brining's spot in the side.

"I know Reiss pretty well and I used to teach Reiss at Wakefield College," Ford added. "First of all, he's a good kid and he's got a great attitude and he's a professional.

"He's very clever and deceptive at nine and and the dummy half area. He'll certainly get an opportunity with Kriss being concussed and I'm looking forward to working with him.

"He's the potential to be a really good player. He's got some stuff to learn but most young halves or hookers have in terms of their management of games and sticking to a game plan.

"He had some good games for Batley and he was unlucky at Bradford not to play more because they had a few hookers there at the time who were a little bit more established.

"When we played them (Bradford), we'd previewed a fair bit on him and we were pleased not to see him in the side. We believe that he's got some strengths and I'm sure that he'll bring plenty to us.
