The Minstermen are back on the road this coming Saturday for the first of two successive away games in the National League as they travel to the EBB Stadium to take on Aldershot Town.
Mikey Morton’s side picked up their first point of the season on Tuesday evening with a 2-2 draw at the LNER Community Stadium to Altrincham and they’ll be hoping to follow that up with their first victory of the new season this coming Saturday.
Dipo Akinyemi opened the scoring during Tuesday evening’s draw, netting his second goal of the season, whilst there was a first goal for winger Callum Harriott, who was named man of the match after making his first competitive start of the season.
The hosts come into this fixture having made a similar start to the Minstermen, sitting only two points and one place above Morton’s side in the National League table.
After securing a comprehensive 5-2 win over newly-promoted Oxford City on the opening day of the season, Tommy Widdrington’s side fell to back-to-back defeats at the hands of Oldham Athletic and Ebbsfleet United.
Aldershot Town vs York City will be played on Saturday 19th August, kicking off at 3pm. Here is all the information you need to know ahead of our trip to the EBB Stadium.

Car: Leave the M3 at Junction 4 and take the A331 towards Farnborough/Aldershot. Continue towards Aldershot passing the North Camp turn off. At the next junction (Aldershot South) turn right at the roundabout towards Aldershot Town Centre (A323). Keep straight on this road and after going under a railway bridge, the ground is visible on your right.
Parking: There is little parking available at the ground itself, but if using the directions above then if you pass the ground on your right and then turn right at the next roundabout there is a small pay and display car park immediately on your right, which costs £2 for four hours. There is street parking available on roads off Redan Road, which is handy for the away entrance.
Otherwise, most fans tend to park in one of the many Pay & Display car parks, located around the town centre.
Train: Aldershot Railway Station is less than a ten minute walk away from the ground.
Upon leaving the train station, go down the station approach and turn right into Windsor Way. Continue down Windsor Way passing the Holy Trinity Church on your left. The road bends to the left and leads into Victoria Road.
Turn right along Victoria Road and at the bottom of the road you will see floodlights of the Recreation Ground in front of you.
City will head down to face Aldershot this weekend hoping to look for their first victory over them for the first time since September 2012, where goals from Matty Blair and Jason Walker saw the Minstermen run out 2-0 winners in Sky Bet League Two.
Since then, Aldershot have held an impressive record against the Minstermen in their previous five encounters, with The Shots securing two wins and three draws against York.
