York Preview

22 February 2013

We look ahead to Saturday's big match at the Kassam Stadium

We look ahead to tomorrow's big home match against York City.

Team News

Alfie Potter and Tony Capaldi return to the squad after being struck down with an illness ahead of last week's win at Plymouth. The pair come back in to contention along with fit-again Michael Duberry who has recovered from a hamstring problem.

There was further good news this week with JP Pittman stepping up his recovery on the training ground. The striker hopes to be back in contention in two to three weeks after a dislocated shoulder.

See Chris Wilder and Michael Raynes previewing the game in Yellow Player. 

Military Day
We salute the work of our armed forces tomorrow with all military personnel who attend in uniform able to watch the game for free, and discounts for all serving personnel and their families who book in advance. There will be a flight simulator outside the ground for fans to try and our friends from SSAFA will be collecting around the ground for the families and dependents from those injured or killed in serving our country. The Abingdon Military Wives Choir will be singing and the Royal British Legion and Chelsea pensioners will form a guard of honour to welcome the players on to the pitch.

The Opposition 
York are on a poor run of form, not having won since New Year's Day. The Minstermen sank to 17th place after a 2-1 defeat at home to Barnet and are now without a victory in their last eight games. Former Oxford striker Oli Johnson is ruled out by injury.

Tickets are available at advance prices, saving you time and money on the day, via the phones or via where you can pick your exact seat and see the approximate view from that seat. The phonelines are open on 01865 337533 or call in person at the Ticket Office. 

Book your seat and come and cheer the boys on.
