Match Preview | York City vs Dorking Wanderers

By Ryan Brookes | Image by Tom Poole

City are back at the LNER Community Stadium this Tuesday evening, as we begin a run of three consecutive home games, starting with the visit of Dorking Wanderers (7.45pm kick-off).  

It is an opportunity to make it two league wins on the bounce for the first time this season following Saturday’s late triumph down at Southend.

Marc White’s Dorking Wanderers side travel up to North Yorkshire knowing three points against the Minstermen could pull them out of the bottom four and level on points with City.

It looks to be third time lucky for this fixture, after cup involvement and freezing conditions have led to previous postponements.
