RICHARD Brodie and Onome Sodje have doubled Martin Foyle’s striking options ahead of York City’s Blue Square Premier trip to Histon tonight.

Sodje has recovered from tonsillitis which kept him out of the Minstermen’s 1-0 defeat by Grays, while Brodie has served the one-match ban he picked up after reaching five yellow cards when celebrating his equaliser at Salisbury.

Their returns are a welcome boost for Foyle, who saw City spurn a number of opportunities against Grays.

But Bruce Dyer’s tight hamstring keeps him on the sidelines along with winger Simon Russell, who was substituted at half-time suffering from the same problem.

Foyle said his players needed to be more ruthless in front of goal and added that those players in his squad who have yet to get their chance in the first team needed to be “ready” if the opportunity came.

“What I have said to the players on the fringe is ‘are you fit enough?’” Foyle said.

“It is easy to drop heads and blame previous managers.

“You have got to be ready when your chance comes along.

“It usually catches people unawares.

“The players are working hard and we have just got to be a bit more ruthless in the final third.

“Defensively, we have looked solid, but it is goals that win you games.”
