York Press say that Jake Wright is expected to be restored to York City’s starting line-up this weekend following his successful loan spell at National League North rivals Boston United.

The 22-year-old forward netted twice in four outings for the Pilgrims, who wanted to retain his services for the rest of the season.

But, with Macaulay Langstaff having netted three times in as many matches following a similarly fruitful stint at Bradford Park Avenue, Wright is now in line to make City’s first XI for Saturday’s home match with Southport.

One of Wright’s goals for Boston came in a 3-2 triumph over the Sandgrounders and on the ex-Sheffield United reserve attacker’s prospects of facing them again, City chief Steve Watson said: “Jake has come back in similar sort of form to Macca and he will be involved.

“Some of the things he does in training are things nobody else can do and I want him to transfer that into games. That’s purely down to confidence, not ability and we’ve got to try and give him that belief.

“He’s struggled a bit with his physicality too, but he’s a good age, contracted to us next season and I see him as part of our future.”
