FC UNITED of Manchester will entertain York City having still only won one National League North home game all season.

The third-bottom hosts’ only league triumph on their own soil came on December 8 when they defeated Curzon Ashton 2-0.

That match also represented their sole league clean sheet in front of their own fans this term and only bottom-of-the-table Nuneaton and National League South basement club Weston-Super-Mare can equal FC United’s miserable win tally at home from English football’s top-seven divisions.

Just nine of the Moston outfit’s 30 points this term have been claimed at their Broadhurst Park base, where they have now claimed victory only once in 18 league matches.

Their last success, prior to beating Curzon, did come against the Minstermen, however, back on April 17 when Connor McCarthy’s 61st-minute goal secured a 1-0 midweek triumph at the tail-end of last season.

Neil Reynolds’ relegation-threatened team also go into this weekend’s contest hoping to equal their longest undefeated run since January 2018, with last Saturday’s 3-1 win at Telford following three consecutive draws against Hereford (2-2), Southport (0-0) and Guiseley (3-3) racking up a modest sequence of four fixtures without a loss.

United have been no pushovers, though, for the last two months, having not lost any of their last nine games by more than a single-goal margin since going down 2-0 at home to Chester on January 5.

The club now lie three points from a position of safety below fourth-bottom Guiseley, who are without a win in 12 matches since New Year’s Day.

Former City midfielder Michael Potts will not be available for tomorrow’s clash.

Potts, now 27, arrived from manager Reynolds’ old club Bamber Bridge in October and was made captain, scoring two goals before undergoing groin surgery six weeks ago for a hernia injury.

Chorley’s Dale Whitham was subsequently brought in on loan to compensate for Potts’ loss, but he was sidelined last weekend and is doubtful for this meeting against the Minstermen, along with left-back Bob Harris.

Brad Barnes, meanwhile, is a long-term absentee due to cruciate knee ligament damage

Striker Kurt Willoughby has taken over the armband from Potts and, despite the side’s struggles, has plundered 16 goals this term, including six in the last nine games.

Willoughby joined FC United in the summer from Evo-Stik North club Clitheroe, where he was the division’s second-highest marksman with 26 goals in 2017/18.

New recruit Dominic McHale also hit the target against Telford on his debut after arriving from Ashton United.
