Carlisle: York newcomer
Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between York and Oxford United at Bootham Crescent.
York new-boy Clarke Carlisle is expected to go straight into the squad for but fellow new signing Scott Dobie is some way off being ready.
Dobie spent nearly a year without a club after his loan spell with Bradford ended and needs to train for two weeks before he will be considered for selection.
The third of York's recent signings, on-loan Charlie Taylor, could feature in manager Gary Mills' squad.
Chris Doig is an injury doubt for Saturday having picked up a knock at Barnet and could be replaced in the starting line-up by Carlisle.
Defender David McGurk is still out injured but otherwise Mills has a full squad to choose from.
Oxford will welcome back Tom Craddock, Deane Smalley, and Jake Forster-Caskey to their squad.
The trio were all absent from the team that lost 3-0 to Leeds at Elland Road in the Capital One Cup after picking up knocks last weekend, but have now been declared fit to play.
Lee Cox is still struggling with a groin injury, and remains unlikely to feature for the Us until their next home fixture against Exeter next week.
Manager Chris Wilder's injury list is still a cause of concern with five other first-team players on the sidelines.
Michael Duberry, Peter Leven, Andy Whing, Harry Worley, and Liam Davis are all unavailable, and remain some way off a return to match action.
United have given youngsters Sam Long, David Lynn and Tyrone Marsh, who made his debut against Leeds, a chance to gain valuable experience on the bench in recent weeks and Wilder is expected to adopt a similar policy against the Minstermen.
