Match Preview | York City vs Maidenhead United

Image by Adam Davy

The Minstermen return to the LNER Community Stadium this coming Saturday afternoon when we welcome Maidenhead United in the Vanarama National League (3pm kick-off).  

Two postponements in January saw just the one game played on home soil, but February sees a return to the LNER for City.

A reaction will be most sought after by manager Neal Ardley after defeat away to Hartlepool United brought an end to an eight-game unbeaten run.

Alan Devonshire’s Maidenhead United turned over play-off challenging Solihull Moors at York Road last weekend, pushing the Magpies to 14th in the Vanarama National League table.

A win for Neal Ardley’s side would see the Minstermen leapfrog Saturday afternoon’s opponents.
