Nick Pope: Short stay at Bootham Crescent

Pope, 21, has been drafted in as cover for Michael Ingham, sidelined due to a groin injury, and is expected to go straight into the starting line-up for Saturday's league game at Southend.

Fellow new signing Keith Lowe, 28, will also be in contention for the weekend. Both players have joined for an initial month.

Pope's only appearance for Charlton to date came as a substitute on the final day of last season against Bristol City, while he has had loan spells at Cambridge and Aldershot.

Meanwhile, York defender Tom Allan has joined Harrogate Town on loan for a month. Team-mate Tom Platt spent a similar period on loan at the Skrill North side last season.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
