Audio: High fives in the 'Shippo'

Five successive victories has the latest edition of the 'Shippo Podcast' considering whether the sudden revival of in-form York City is the genuine deal - or just another false dawn.

The Minstermen have absolutely stormed up to the table into fourth place while maintaining a 100% winning sequence since Boxing Day, firstly at the expense of bottom club North Ferriby United [twice] and then Darlington, Bradford Park Avenue and AFC Telford United.

City fans Simon Pattinson and Alan Brown therefore reflect on what's made the big difference over the previous three weeks while at the same time looking ahead to vital forthcoming challenges.

The duo also give their verdict regarding the shock recall of former skipper Simon Heslop and assistant manager Dave Penney recently taking over media duties.
