YORK City continue to wait on news on winger Remy Longdon.

The 24-year-old has been unavailable for selection over the past fortnight as the club confirmed in mid-February that he was undergoing tests after experiencing palpitations.

It is worrying and disappointing news for both club and player, with Longdon having made a loan move from Lincoln City permanent only the month before.

Interim manager John Askey says that Longdon is fine within himself, and City's sole hope is that he comes through the ordeal okay.

"Obviously he's worried but he couldn't be having any better treatment," Askey said.

"They're just keeping their eye on him.

"It's another player who we can't use.

"But the most important thing is that he comes through it and is okay.

"That's what we all want."

City make the trip to Mill Farm tonight (7.45pm) to face fellow National League North play-off hopefuls AFC Fylde.

The Minstermen travelled off the back of a 3-0 win over Guiseley in Saturday, when Paddy McLaughlin's opener was augmented by a Mitch Hancox brace in the second half.

And McLaughlin had praise to lavish on his midfield partner, whose new-found goalscoring form has taken some by surprise after he joined City on loan as a left-back.

"He's always been a good player," McLaughlin laughed. "People seem to think he's come out of nowhere but he's been a good player for a lot of years.

"I remember playing against him when he was at Macclesfield. He was always a tough opponent and he scored goals there as well.

"I'm not surprised at all."
