Recent respective form guides

York City's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. The Minstermen's have scored 6 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 7.

Crawley Town's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Reds have hit 4 goals, 7 have hit the back of the wrong net.

York City's total of 44 points from their 25 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Nationwide Conference. Crawley Town are stuck down in the relegation zone of Nationwide Conference with a return of just 24 points from their 24 games thus far.
