Micky Cummins has said York City’s preparations ahead of the visit of Kettering Town have involved removing the “fear factor”.
The assistant manager also believes that the onus for goalscoring should not fall solely on the Minstermen’s strikers as York look to put in a positive performance on Saturday.
York have the third-best goal difference in the National League North – and the fourth-best across all three divisions in the National League – but this is more the result of the side’s defensive efforts than those at the other end of the pitch.
“Don’t be afraid to shoot. If you get half a chance, get your shot away,” Cummins said.
“If the keeper saves, someone’s going to be there to parry it. If you miss the target, we reset and go again.
“Take that fear away from them. We’ve got in some good crossing positions and some good deliveries.”
