York City will welcome relegation rivals Dorking Wanderers to the LNER Stadium for Tuesday's National League contest.

Dorking are currently in 19th place and one point above the drop zone, while their hosts are two points better off in 18th position.

Match preview

Since losing to Nantwich Town in the FA Trophy on December 9, York have made themselves a tough team to beat, winning one and drawing four of their last five matches.

After playing out three consecutive draws, the Minstermen began the new year with a 2-0 home victory over Gateshead, before they left it late to salvage a point from their most recent outing against Boreham Wood on Janaury 7.

Adam Crookes netted a 93rd-minute equaliser to cancel out Boreham Wood's opener and rescue a precious point for his side.

After seeing a fourth consecutive away league game finish all square, Neal Ardley's side will now return to the LNER Community Stadium, where they are unbeaten in three matches (W2, D1).

Although the reverse meeting with Dorking produced a 2-2 scoreline, York can draw inspiration from the fact that they claimed a narrow 2-1 victory in their most recent home game against Tuesday's opponents in March 2023.

While York were not in action at the weekend, Dorking experienced a disappointing defeat in Saturday's FA Trophy clash with seventh-tier Macclesfield Town.

Dorking conceded three goals in the space of 11 second-half minutes to slump to a heavy 5-0 defeat against their lower-league opponents.

Having now lost five of their last six competitive matches, Marc White's side will be desperate for a positive result in Tuesday's away trip.

They did at least enjoy success on their most recent away league game on New Year's Day when they edged out Oxford City via a 2-1 scoreline.

Not only will Dorking be targeting all three points, but they will also be keen to claim their first clean sheet in the league since September, having failed to record a shutout in any of their previous 13 matches in the fifth tier.

Team News

The hosts remain without the services of midfielder Daniel Batty, who has not played since October due to injury.

January addition Billy Chadwick is expected to retain his place in the York side after making his debut in the 1-1 draw against Boreham Wood.

As for the visitors, they are unable to call upon the services of Matt Briggs, who sustained a hamstring injury in the defeat to Oldham Athletic earlier this month.

Jimmy Muit was cup-tied for the heavy loss against Macclesfield at the weekend, but he could feature among the substitutes for Tuesday's contest.

York City possible starting lineup:
Sykes-Kenworthy; Fallowfield, Howe, Smith, Crookes; Burgess, Latty-Fairweather, Woodyard; Davies, Chadwick, Akinyemi

Dorking Wanderers possible starting lineup:
Male; Fuller, Craig, Hollis; B. Taylor, Pybus, J. Taylor, McManus, Bowerman; Prior, Carter

We say: York City 2-1 Dorking Wanderers

With just two points separating the two sides in the National League table, we expect Tuesday's encounter to be a close-fought contest.

While fine margins should decide the fixture, we think that York will do enough to claim all three points against a Dorking side that has lost five of their last six matches.
