NATIONAL League North leaders Salford will visit York City having only won two of their last seven away matches.

The Greater Manchester outfit have lost twice to third-placed Brackley in that sequence – going down 4-0 in the FA Trophy and 2-1 in the league – whilst also being on the receiving end of a 3-2 reverse at mid-table neighbours FC United of Manchester.

Salford still boast the division’s best record on the road, having collected 30 points this term, even though top-scorer Jack Redshaw has preferred home comforts with only two of the former Blackpool and Morecambe striker’s 14 goals coming outside of Moor Lane.

The Trophy defeat, meanwhile, is the only game in which the Ammies have failed to net during 15 fixtures on their travels this season.

But, despite being five points clear at the top, Salford only boast the sixth-highest, goals-for record in National League North and third-best defensive column.

Harrogate (66), Blyth (58), the Minstermen (54), Spennymoor (52) and Stockport (52) have all outscored 50-goal Salford, while Brackley (24) and Chorley (27) have been marginally stronger at the back than Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley’s men, who have conceded 28 times.

Midfielder Scott Burton will be unavailable for tomorrow’s game with his seven-match suspension having been extended following the postponement of last weekend’s home fixture against Bradford Park Avenue.

Burton received two red cards in consecutive matches against Chorley and FC United for violent conduct either side of Christmas, with each offence meriting a three-match ban and an extra fixture added for the player’s second dismissal of the season.

Centre-back Liam Hogan is expected to start and will be looking to add to the three goals he has already scored against City this season.

Former Halifax and Gateshead defender Hogan is yet to net against any other opposing team during 2017/18.
