Proud York City have been to the new Wembley stadium more than any other club since it reopened in 2007.

"We showed our character against a very good team who had been top of the league for a long time" - Lanre Oyebanjo
The Minstermen will this evening be bidding for yet another prized date at the national stadium having incredibly already appeared there four times in the past five seasons.

Nigel Worthington's side must though first overcome the challenge of big-spending Fleetwood Town, against whom they started their current magnificent seventeen-game unbeaten run at the beginning of February.

However, that outstanding record only survives after they were forced to come from two-goals down at already-promoted Scunthorpe United on the final day of the regular season.

"It was important that we carried on that unbeaten run at Scunthorpe where we were very disappointed to be 2-1 down at half-time," defender Lanre Oyebanjo told the Yorkshire Post. "But we picked it up and showed our character against a very good team who had been top of the league for a long time.

"That character and comeback will stand us in good stead for the play-offs because we know that if do go behind we are capable of coming back. Hopefully, though, we will not be in that situation," he added. "Fleetwood are a good side and we expect a tough test. I want to go to Wembley again and win but let's get there first."
