YORK CITY: MATCH PREVIEW



It's matchday 2 of the 2021/22 season, and we have a mouth watering game to mark the return to New Meadow Park in the form of former Football League club York City.


PAUL GROVES...


"York are a team that can be a handful on the day. They've got a number of players that are highly skilled and for this level, are brilliant players. But it's always going to be about us and about how we can perform on the day."


"But off the pitch this is going to be a huge occasion for the club. We've got big numbers coming down and they'll make it an intimidating atmosphere for the opposition and that's just what we want."


YORK CITY...


"Gloucester are a good side with good players and good movement up top, McClure is a good striker, they've got good energy, good youth and they're very good on the ball. But we've got nothing to fear. We'll go down there and give it a bash with the squad we've got available. But we're down to the bare bones now because of injuries. But we'll go down there with total focus on coming back with points."
