Injury concerns in City attack

25th July 2017

YORK City are set to be without a trio of strikers for tonight’s pre-season friendly at Oakham United (kick-off 7pm).

Amari Morgan-Smith (pictured) and Louis Almond are both nursing knee injuries while teenager Ryan Edmondson has been ruled out for six weeks with a groin problem.

Morgan-Smith picked up a knee injury in training yesterday and is now being assessed.

Almond, who joined the Minstermen this summer from Tranmere Rovers, missed Saturday’s 3-1 victory at Grantham Town but could be back for this weekend’s game against Notts County at Bootham Crescent.

Edmondson was hurt after coming on as a substitute in the pre-season game against Scunthorpe United. Still only 16, he had also figured in the opening game of the pre-season programme at Farsley Celtic.

City will definitely start the new season without three players who are on the road to recovery following surgery.

Defender Matty Fry has undergone a knee operation and will be unavailable for the next two months.

Winger Aidan Connolly is running again after a summer calf operation and targeting a return to action next month.

Midfielder Clovis Kamdjo snapped cruciate knee ligaments against Eastleigh eight months ago and is unlikely to be back on the training field before November.

Manager Gary Mills, meanwhile, is planning to involve all ‘available’ players at some stage in tonight’s game against Oakham.

The fixture against the United Counties League Division One side is the final game on the team's four day training camp.
