That has in turn witnessed a marked rise up the division towards mid-table.
It's not an unusual scenario for the dependable McGurk, 31, and closing in on 350 senior appearances, after helping achieve a similar upturn when returning from injury as York completed a dramatic relegation escape over the closing weeks of last season.
"It's good to have players fit and that's held Dave back every so often but he's had a little run of games now and is going quite nicely," manager Nigel Worthington told The Press. "He's been solid and done things simple. We have competition for places in that position now with John McCombe and Keith Lowe coming in and that keeps everybody on their toes."
Middlesbrough-born McGurk is the longest surviving player at York after first appearing for them on loan from Darlington back in September 2004 until signing a permanent deal in June 2006.
