YORK City striker Richard Pacquette is available after serving a suspension for his red card at Gateshead, but could struggle to make the bench against Kettering.

Despite also serving a ban at the start of the season for a sending-off at Maidenhead last term, boss Martin Foyle decided against a lecture on discipline.

He said: “I feel sorry for him because he scored at Hayes and was doing quite well at Gateshead and it was never a sending-off. Now he’s got to fight his way back in.

“He’s been as good as gold for me and never done anything wrong. I can only judge what I see and, eight or ten years ago, referees would overlook a bit of retaliation, but they handle things differently now.”
