York boss Nigel Worthington has hailed the contribution of on-loan defenders Luke O'Neill and Ben Davies.

Neither right-back O'Neill or left-back Davies were given permission to play in last week's FA Cup draw at Bristol Rovers by respective parent clubs Burnley and Preston.

Worthington remains frustrated that his side is still leaking goals - they were forced to a replay last weekend despite scoring three goals away from home - and both O'Neill and Davies are expected to go straight back into his starting line-up for Saturday's home game against Plymouth Argyle.

"Both Luke and Brad will both be available and it's always a big plus to have more options," Worthington said.

"Luke is a very accomplished player, he has great ability and all round is a very good player.

"Both of them certainly add to what we've already got in the squad.

"Young Brad is very young, he's only 18, but I've got to say, from a consistency point of view he's at a very good level week in, week out.

"He's already one of the first names to go on the teamsheet because you know nine times out of 10 what you're going to get from him."
