Home form key declares York City's Ashley Chambers
HOME form is the key to an advance in the League Two table declared York City wideman Ashley Chambers .
City will now play host to Oxford and Chesterfield at Bootham Crescent on consecutive weekends, either side of a Johnstone’s Paint Trophy first round tie at Rotherham.
With the weekend toppling of Barnet, the Minstermen have now won five of their last six games on the road in the league, including last season’s play-off semi-final, but only won one in six at Bootham Crescent.
Chambers, though, remains confident that record can be remedied.
“The next two matches will be very tough games against established League Two sides in Oxford and Chesterfield but they will be footballing matches and, hopefully, we will carry our form from the last two games into the next two,” he said.
“We travelled very well last season and I’m not totally sure why we did not pick up as many points at home. We play our game and maybe it is more suited to counter-attacking in away matches.
“But our home form will be fine and, if we can turn Bootham Crescent into a fortress, we will be more than fine and looking towards the top end of the table.”
