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.

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
