YORK City have confirmed their next fixture will be at home to AFC Fylde next Tuesday despite efforts to get a league game in on Saturday.

Farsley Celtic were due to visit the LNER Community Stadium in National League North for a 3pm kick off today but have refused to travel.

City boss Steve Watson said he would be open to trying to get a game in when the scheduled opposition takes such a stance, and that appears to be just what the club have done.

He said: "We’ve tried everything to arrange a league game for tomorrow but unfortunately to no avail. I’m sure our fans are as frustrated as we are but there were obstacles at every turn.

"I feel sorry for not only our players but for players at other clubs because I’m sure no footballer wants to be sitting at home on a Saturday afternoon when they are fit and ready to play - but unfortunately that’s where we find ourselves.

"So the focus is now on Fylde on Tuesday night and a game that I’m as confident as I can be that will go ahead."
