ASSISTANT manager Micky Cummins has said York City are grateful to have the chance to make immediate amends following Tuesday’s loss.

In midweek, the Minstermen suffered a 3-1 defeat to AFC Fylde in their inaugural outing at their new LNER Community Stadium home.

Afterwards, York boss Steve Watson said: “I was really disappointed with the first half.

“We weren’t brave enough on the ball, we couldn’t get the ball into the front men or control possession.

“We were stretching for things and seemed to panic.

Tomorrow, City make the trip over to Lancashire for their third match against Chorley this season, and for what is just their third match since the turn of the year.

The Magpies sit just one spot above eighth-placed York in National League North with one point more to their name - and a -4 goal difference.

Watson will be looking for a strong performance.

It is the first of two back-to-back away games the Minstermen face, and thus two games until after which York will have to wait for another crack at getting their first three points at Monks Cross.

That is not the major concern for Cummins, though. “Just the fact that we have a game straight away, regardless of being home or away, is all we can be happy for really,” he said.

“It would have been nice to be at home - it would have been nice to have fans in. But you can’t have everything your own way.

“We’ve got a game to bounce back quickly, to wrong a few rights, then we’ve got another quick turnaround to midweek of next week (at Boston United).

“In terms of location, we’ll play anywhere as long as there’s a game for us.

“We’ve got a squad to pick and we’re going to go there to try and win.”

Akil Wright has been training all week and is back fit, reported Cummins. The midfielder had picked up a muscle strain over the Step 2 suspension period.

Defender Josh King, a longer term absentee, was back in training on Thursday.
