Image by Tom Poole

York City are next in action, in the first of back-to-back Saturday home fixtures, with a game against Eastleigh on Saturday, April 6th (3pm kick-off).

The Minstermen return to Vanarama National League action following Tuesday night’s one-all draw away at FC Halifax Town.

Adam Hinshelwood’s side are now four unbeaten heading into Saturday, with three wins and the most recent draw all coming against sides at the top end of the division.

Visitors Eastleigh sit on the same points total as City (50), meaning both sides have it all to play for as they look to get a victory and pull further away from the drop zone.

Eastleigh appointed manager Kelvin Davies in February, following the departure of Richard Hill.
