York City have suffered another unfortunate injury blow with defender Jon Challinor breaking his fibula during last night's 0-0 draw with Gillingham at Bootham Crescent.

"Fractured my fib 4-6 weeks I think should know more next couple of days!" - Jon Challinor
The 32-year-old was recalled at right-back for the visit of the title-chasing Gills but ended up being replaced by Alex Rodman with fourteen minutes of the game remaining. He is likely to remain sidelined for up to six weeks, which was described as a "big blow" by manager Gary Mills.

"Fractured my fib 4-6 weeks I think should know more next couple of days!," commented a naturally disappointed Challinor on social network site Twitter.

Challinor has made twenty appearances for the Minstermen this season, with most of them coming from the bench. But he started both famous Wembley victories back in May.

York City produced another well-below-par performance in a 1-1 draw with a decent Kidderminster Harriers side at Bootham Crescent and continue to slip further behind the leaders.

Skipper Ryan Croasdale had earned the visitors a deserved advantage midway through the opening half, but leading goalscorer Jon Parkin's superb free-kick cancelled it out before the interval.

Manager Martin Gray earlier named an unchanged starting line-up with the returning Tyler Walton replacing Theo Wha
