TEAM NEWS
United look to end Easter with another win after their excellent 3-2 win at Wycombe on Good Friday. With a bumper Bank Holiday Crowd expected it is set to be a great family day out for 'Supporters Day'

The U's welcome Alex MacDonald back into the squad after suspension but the former Burton winger may have to be patient with wide men Kemar Roofe and Danny Rose the scorers in Friday's win at Adams Park.   However boss Michael Appleton hinted after that game that he may well make changes for a a game that could ensure United's safety:

"That's something we have discussed before the weekend." he said. "There have been a few times this season when we have been good on the Saturday then not matched that on the Tuesday night so we have talked about freshening things up and making changes. We took a couple of knocks on Friday so we'll just look at them and then make decisions. It's another big game, York will be fighting for everything and it's one we are all looking forward to."

THE OPPOSITION
A 1-0 win over Cheltenham gave York  a five point cushion above the relegation places as well as just their third home win of the season. “We must keep our foot on the gas" said Manager Russ Wilcox." Bristol Rovers probably thought they were safe at this stage last season but ended up going down.”
