Full Match Pack
•    Danny Hylton available after suspension
•    Striking dilemma for Appleton
•    Pay on the day for United fans
•    James Roberts set to feature
•    Hylton favourite for first goal

We look ahead to Saturday and United’s trip north to face York City.

TEAM NEWS
United have top scorer Danny Hylton available again as they travel to York this weekend. The striker, who has already hit 12 goals so far this season, missed out on the FA Cup win at Grimsby through suspension. In Hylton’s place last weekend was teenage striker James Roberts, who more than impressed fans, team mates and management, scoring twice on his full debut. Wingers Alfie Potter and Callum O’Dowda have also impressed in recent weeks, with O’Dowda grabbing an assist for Robert’s second goal at Grimsby. Brian Howard also offered experience alongside Roberts in the attack in the same game, and Tyrone Barnett came off the bench after being rested, meaning Head Coach Michael Appleton has plenty of options against the Minstermen.

Appleton said:
"It’s a nice headache to have, Robbo did ever so well for us last weekend, and maybe for the first time this Saturday I’ve got a real dilemma up front. You’ve got a young lad who scored twice on his debut, a player who has always done well and scored goals at this level, and you’ve got the top scorer to come back as well."

With striker Will Hoskins’ recovery from injury going well, it could mean more competition for United in attack.

THE OPPOSITION
York City manager Russ Wilcox was pleased with his side’s FA Cup performance last time out, coming off the back of an excellent 1-0 win at Cheltenham Town. City have suffered injury wise this season and will be without on-loan striker Deon Burton for the game after he limped off at Cheltenham.
Strikers Jake Hyde and Wes Fletcher are set to lead the City attack but Wilcox will face a dilemma whether to utilise both players after they both suffered recent injuries and have only just returned to match fitness.
Defender John McCombe had to be replaced in the FA Cup draw with AFC Wimbledon but after returning to training in midweek he competes for a place in the side with on-loan defender Stephane Zubar.
