York City skipper Chris Smith has been confirmed as available for this weekend's home clash with Bristol Rovers.

"The gaffer wasn't pleased with the yellow card but it was just instinct" - Chris Smith
The 31-year-old centre-back collected a late booking in the weekend defeat at Plymouth Argyle following a heavy injury-time challenge. But it was only his fourth of the campaign and he must therefore avoid a fifth caution and subsequent suspension until the cut-off point of 31st December.

"The gaffer wasn't pleased with the yellow card but it was just instinct," Smith told The Press. "I've been pretty pleased with my discipline for a defender otherwise.

"Suspensions are always there of course and I want to play every game if I am fit and the manager chooses me," he added. "If I'm suspended, it will also mean I have to fight to win my place back."

Individual errors cost us - Gray

Martin Gray was again left reflecting on an inability to defend set-pieces after suffering a first defeat in charge of York City.

Salford City 3 York City 2

York City appear to be left scrapping for a play-off place at best following a rather flattering 3-2 defeat at promotion rivals Salford City.

Skipper Liam Hogan - who scored for the hosts in the FA Cup meeting between the two clubs five weeks ago - netted in each half and either side of Jack Redshaw's long overdue strike.

Late replies from substitutes Louis Almond and Aidan Connolly simply masked another seriously inept performance from their opponents.
