YORK City midfielder Steven Hogg has returned to full training.

The former Manchester United trainee, signed from Gretna in the summer, has yet to make his competitive City debut after thigh problems and a dose of shingles.

Hogg is unlikely to be considered for Saturday’s trip to Kettering, but could come into first-team contention following Tuesday night’s reserve home match with Grimsby Town.

Simon Rusk is back in training after his knee injury and Onome Sodje has been running at Wigginton Road having also missed Saturday’s 2-0 win over Woking with a hamstring injury.
