Kevin Wilkin says Wes York’s main hope of earning a move away from Conference Premier club Nuneaton Town is….
….to produce his best form for them.
The Boro boss revealed there has been an enquiry about the transfer-listed forward, who is currently struggling with a knee injury.
However, with his undisclosed asking price not reached, Wilkin says York must perform well to tempt clubs into putting their hands in their pockets.
He said: “There’s been some interest but nothing that has met the valuation we’ve set.
“Sometimes when you have interest it can be a distraction whether you want it to or not.
“He needs to find that focus and harness the form of the end of last season where he did very well.
“He’s made progress, but you’ve got to keep making progress and not just plateau.”
Wilkin was keen to say he is not unhappy with the former Anstey Nomads youngster’s efforts, but he believes he is capable of far better than he has shown in pre-season so far.
“I’m not saying he’s not focussed or not working.
“He can do better in games – as can all the attacking players.
“On Saturday we had possession but lacked a cutting edge against Worcester.
“Everyone worked hard but we didn’t open Worcester up. That might have been easier with an early goal but we didn’t get it.”
Meanwhile, York and Simon Forsdick will both have their knee injuries assessed.
The duo hobbled out of last Saturday’s goalless draw and Wilkin admits he is worried Forsdick in particular will be ruled out for a spell.
“There is more of a concern about Simon when you consider his history of knee problems,” he said.
“His injury on Saturday wasn’t to the knee that was scanned last week.
“It was one of those innocuous things that can happen in pre-season.
“The grass is slightly longer and sometimes you get your studs caught in the pitch.”
