Recent respective form guides

York City's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Minstermen have scored 7, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

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 5 goals, 9 have hit the back of the wrong net.

York City find themselves struggling down in 17th position in the league having picked up 24 points from their 20 matches. Crawley Town's 31 points from 20 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 10th position.
