STRIKER Calvin Andrew insists York City are capable of beating any of the other three teams in the League Two play-offs.

The Minstermen, who finished seventh in the table, host Fleetwood Town at what will be a sold-out Bootham Crescent tomorrow night. York will travel to the seaside town for the return a week today.

Fleetwood, one of the biggest spenders in the basement division since winning promotion from the Conference in 2012, are considered as favourites to progress after ending the regular season just one position below the automatic promotion places.

But, after triumphing at Highbury 2-1 in February, Nigel Worthington’s men will take on Fleetwood in confident mood.

Andrew said: “We are comfortable taking on any of the teams in the play-offs.

“We are capable of beating any team.

“On our day, and if we are able to play the right football, hopefully we will.

“I haven’t ever played at Wembley so it is a little personal incentive for myself. I am sure all the other lads will be looking forward to what would be a great experience.”

Andrew won promotion from League Two with Port Vale a year ago and moved to Bootham Crescent on a short-term deal in March after injury ruled out Wes Fletcher for the rest of the season.

The 27-year-old, who netted his first goal in the final-day draw at Scunthorpe United, said: “There was a little bit of everything really about my decision to join York.

“I knew a couple of the players here already and after speaking to the manager I was very interested in being part of what he wanted to achieve at the club.

“I am here until the end of the season and then I will see where I go from there.”
