Neal Ardley’s men face a trip to Essex this weekend, as they look for three points away at Southend United on Saturday (10th February, 3pm kick off).

The Minstermen head into this one following a home point against Maidenhead, and with a busy February ahead, City will want to pick up their first win of the month as soon as possible.

Our opponents will also be looking to claim a first February victory after last Saturday’s action saw them fall to a 1-0 defeat to Gateshead.

Both sides sit on 34 points, lingering over the drop zone, which paints this upcoming clash as a crucial one, and York City will be hoping new man Danny Amos can make an instant impact on a potential debut.
