Recent respective form guides

York City's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Minstermen have scored 4, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

Exeter City's away form is none too clever either, winning and losing 3 each of the last six games. The Grecians's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 6 goals for and 4 against.

York City find themselves struggling down in 15th position in the league having picked up 37 points from their 32 matches. Exeter City's 46 points from 30 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 10th position.
