York v Torquay preview

Team news for Tuesday's League Two clash between York City and Torquay United at Bootham Crescent.

York will be without Josh Carson and Wes Fletcher against Torquay and boss Nigel Worthington is hoping the pair will not be ruled out for the rest of the season.

Midfielder Carson and striker Fletcher both sustained knee ligament damage in Saturday's win at Portsmouth and having named the same starting line-up for the sixth successive game, Worthington will be forced into changes.

Ryan Jarvis could make his first start since New Year's Day in a central role up front, with Michael Coulson switching to the wing, while Lewis Montrose provides a midfield option in Carson's absence.

Defender Lanre Oyebanjo is another injury concern after taking a knock at Portsmouth as the Minstermen chase a sixth straight win.

Torquay could have winger Shamir Goodwin available as they make the long trip to York.

Goodwin has travelled north with the Gulls squad as Torquay wait for a verdict on their appeal against his three-match ban for a straight red card against Newport on Saturday.

Manager Chris Hargreaves has a number of options if he chooses to freshen up his rock-bottom side with Ashley Yeoman, Nathan Craig and Jayden Stockley all pushing for starts.
