Richard Cresswell: Could stay at Bootham Crescent

Veteran striker Cresswell, who started out as a trainee at York 15 years ago, returned to Bootham Crescent on loan from Sheffield United last month, but his parent club have the option of recalling him after Saturday's game at Northampton.

Worthington said: "Cressy is definitely with us for the trip to Northampton on Saturday and we're hopeful he'll still be here for the Southend game.

"Unless we hear otherwise from Sheffield United, that should be the case."

Cresswell, 35, has started in all four of the Minstermen's games since returning to boost their npower Football League survival hopes.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
