Match Preview | Oxford City vs York City

Image by Mark Comer

The Minstermen look to return to action following two postponements in five days when we travel south to take on Oxford City on Tuesday, January 23rd (7,45pm kick off).

Back-to-back postponements last week extended the Minstermen’s impromptu break to 15-days from the last outing on Sunday, January 7th vs Boreham Wood.

Our hosts also suffered a postponement at the weekend when Woking’s pitch surrendered as a result of the weather.

Oxford City have struggled to put together a set of victories so far in the Vanarama National League, winning six games and losing 16 in 28 games played so far this campaign.

Sitting only six points behind the Minstermen in the league table, three points for both sides would prove invaluable come the end of the season.
