McGurk injury not serious

14 January 2013

York defender David McGurk has not been ruled out of next Saturday's home game with Aldershot despite being stretchered off in the weekend draw at Cheltenham.

McGurk, making his 30th appearance for the Minstermen, sustained a neck injury during the build-up to Cheltenham's goal and after being carried off the field in the 71st minute left Whadden Road wearing a neck brace.

But manager Gary Mills expects the 30-year-old centre-half to recover in time to face the Shots.

"He got spasms from his neck right down his back and was in a neck brace after he came off, but we think he will be okay for next week," Mills said after match.

Meanwhile, on-loan striker Alex Rodman was ruled out of Saturday's stalemate after sustaining a hamstring injury in pre-match training.

Rodman will miss out at the weekend anyway as he is ineligible to face his parent club.
