York City boss Nigel Worthington will move for a new striker if their current goal-scoring problems continue.
|“You are probably looking at young strikers from higher up the leagues” – Nigel Worthington|
The Minstermen have netted only once from open play this season and are still without a victory in seven attempts in all competitions.
“We inquired about a couple of players before the transfer window closed but there was nothing doing,” Worthington
told The Press. “Not many people let you have out-and-out strikers who finish well and you are probably looking at young strikers from higher up the leagues.
“The loan window will be opening next week and, if we have to go down that route we will do, but the players have got a chance to put things right against Stevenage and, hopefully, take some chances.”
Worthington still hopes last season’s top marksman Wes Fletcher will be available for the weekend after suffering a tightening of his hamstring at Barnsley.
“We will have a look at him tomorrow morning to see where he’s at,” he added. “We won’t risk him, but it seems to be settling down and we will see how he reacts to doing some work.”
Midfielder Tom Platt is though ruled out with an ankle injury that should clear up by next week.
