All quiet on transfer front for Minstermen

YORK City are unlikely to add to their squad today despite racking up their fifth successive draw since the start of the season.

The Minstermen fought out a stalemate with Wycombe at Bootham Crescent with the home side looking toothless in attack.

But manager Nigel Worthington is not expecting to bolster his ranks before the transfer window closes tonight, believing there is little on the market to interest him.

“I am expecting a quiet one,” said Worthington of deadline day.

“We’ve had a little look and there’s not too much floating about to go and bring somebody in and I can’t see anything happening really, so we will continue working with what we’ve got.

“In seven days’ time, we can also go back into the loan market, so it’s not as if the window is completely closed until January.”

Against Wycombe, the Minstermen once more created more openings than their opponents but did not convince in front of goal.

Summer signing Jake Hyde had the hosts’ best opportunity but failed to find the target from four yards after Wanderers goalkeeper Matt Ingram had kept out Michael Coulson’s free-kick.

Despite being denied a sight of Michael Ingham’s goal for long periods, Gareth Ainsworth’s men had two excellent second-half chances to win.

Ingham was equal to both, parrying Steven Craig’s eight-yard attempt following Femi Ilesanmi’s mistake and then keeping out Paul Hayes’s shot with his left leg.
