"THE way we're playing, I can't see anyone beating us," said striker Alex Kempster ahead of York City's trip to Spennymoor Town.

Confidence is high among the Minstermen squad off the back of another win last weekend, and Kempster himself has been in fine form of late.

He got his second goal of term in the 2-0 home win over Leamington, with his first coming in the comprehensive 3-0 victory at Blyth Spartans.

North-East lad Kempster admits that netting against local sides feels just that bit better for him - and Spennymoor, where he spent two months on loan, just about fall into that bracket for him.

"I had a loan spell there last season," he said. "I really enjoyed it, they're a good set of lads and will be a good test for us, but the form we're in, hopefully we can continue that into the next few games and have a clean bank holiday and get six points.

"I want to score whichever team I'm playing against.

"They always pose a threat. They were up there last season and were probably unlucky not to get promoted.

"But we're more concentrated on what we're like and the way we're playing, I can't see anyone beating us at the minute.

"Hopefully we'll continue that form and get the three points.

"It was good to go back," he added of the Blyth game. "I've watched Blyth games before because I live just 20 minutes from the place.

"I had quite a bit of family at the game. I'm always buzzing to score and, more importantly, get off the mark for the season, but it makes it extra special when you're against one of your local sides."

The marksman is often deployed alongside Jordan Burrow at the head of City's attack, and has shown himself capable of filling that berth - indeed, his signature was secured at York after the 23-year-old bagged himself a hat-trick while on trial under then-manager Martin Gray.

And while determined to keep adding to his York tally - which, pre-season included, has risen to six for the campaign - he insists he is not setting any aims in stone.

Personal accolades, however, do not mean as much to Kempster, he insists, as the success of the whole side.

"Obviously the team performance is more important," he said. "The last two or three games we have dominated and that's come from the centre-halves through the midfield to the strikers, and Pete (Jameson) as well.

"We're all working hard as a team, the performances are all improving, and long may it continue.

"I play in a couple of positions. The gaffer wants me to play off the last man, where I've got a couple of goals, or as a midfielder.

"I don't mind - I've played both positions in the past - as long as we get the three points."

On working with summer signings Kieran Green and Dan Maguire, he said: "It's good to play with them. They both work hard, but the whole team does, and that makes it easier for myself and Jordan (Burrow) up top. It makes it easier when you've got players running off you and giving you options.

"We have had seven or eight different goalscorers this season and that comes from people getting up the pitch.

"I don't set any goalscoring targets, I just want to score as many as I can.

"I would rather not score as many myself - if I'm helping the team, that's all that matters."
