Tony Mowbray will use this evening's friendly with York City to give more game time to his first team squad.

Having returned from their week-long training camp in Austria, the Blues are back in action with a rare visit to Bootham Crescent.

The Rovers last played at the home of the Minstermen in the old second division on Boxing Day 1975, with York running out 2-1 winners.

Those players who began last Friday's match against Sparta Prague on the bench are likely to be in from the start tonight.

That means the likes of Danny Graham, Liam Feeney and Corry Evans are all expected to start, along with the rest of the players that were second half subs in Salzburg.

"The idea is to give everybody in those first two or three weeks enough game time," said Mowbray.

"Then as you move into the last week or so you try and focus your team more like a team that might start the first game.

"At this moment we are giving everybody minutes and on Tuesday night at York there'll probably be a few young lads starting and the more experienced boys finishing the game."

Fans can pay on the door at York this evening with admission prices of £8 Adults, £4 Concessions (Over 65’s and Under 21’s), Under-5s free. Kick-off is 7.30pm.
