LEAMINGTON will play host to York City tomorrow having won just one of their last 15 matches.

The Warwickshire side’s sole success in just over three months came during a 3-0 home triumph against play-off hopefuls Altrincham at the end of January, but eight matches have also been drawn during the barren period.

Leamington’s indifferent run of results has seen the side drop to sixth-bottom in the National League North standings, with a six-point cushion over the relegation spots.

Draws have featured heavily during the Brakes’ 2018/19 season, especially at home, where seven matches have ended with honours even - a tally that only fourth-bottom Guiseley, with eight, can beat.

Paul Holleran’s men have also shared the spoils 2-2 on a surprising EIGHT occasions this term, which has been the final scoreline during their only three previous meetings against the Minstermen.

The club’s high draw frequency, meanwhile, contributes to a record of just five defeats on their own soil - a number that cannot be bettered outside the division’s top-eight teams.

Indeed, 13th-placed Curzon Ashton are the only side currently positioned in the bottom half of the table to have won at the New Windmill Ground this term, with the other away successes secured by title-challenging pair Stockport and Spennymoor, along with Kidderminster and Blyth.

Leamington’s four home triumphs have all been registered against top-half teams with promotion aspirations, however, with Boston, Bradford Park Avenue, Chester and Altrincham. having all been put to the sword.

The home side will be without former Telford attacking midfielder Kieran Dunbar, who is out for the remainder of the campaign, having undergone an operation to address damaged cartilage in his knee.

Connor Taylor could be back in the reckoning after missing recent matches through injury, but Callum Gittings remains doubtful due to an ankle problem.

Target-man Colby Bishop, who bagged a brace in the corresponding fixture at Bootham Crescent in December, is still Leamington’s biggest threat despite having penalties saved during the last two matches that, ultimately, cost his team points in narrow defeats to Spennymoor (0-1) and Blyth (1-2).

Despite those setbacks, Bishop still has 16 goals to his name this season, having only returned from ten months on the sidelines in October due to cruciate ligament damage.

Even without converting his spot-kick opportunities, the 22-year-old forward has still netted five times in the last six matches, and is particularly threatening on familiar turf. The ex-Notts County player, who also spent spells at Gloucester, Worcester and Boston United before joining Leamington in July 2017, has plundered nine goals in the past ten New Windmill Ground fixtures and ten of his 16-strong haul have been scored at home.

He has taken over the baton left behind by Matthew Stenson, who had hit the target eight times this term before joining National League title contenders Solihull Moors for an undisclosed fee in October. The ex-Barwell forward has found opportunities more restricted in Tim Flowers’ team, with just four starts in his 14 appearances and contributing only one goal.
