Boss on Town's record against York

John Still doesn’t believe in luck, or the curse of the manager of the month award, so there’s no reason to be concerned about the Town’s York City hoodoo when the Minstermen visit Kenilworth Road tonight.

The Town go into this evening’s League 2 fixture with City aiming to improve on a record of just one win in their last 12 meetings with the Bootham Crescent club.

That sole win came when York keeper Michael Ingham was sent-off, leaving his side to play the remaining 70 minutes without a recognised goalkeeper.

And while the Town boss isn’t overall concerned about that record, he does want to see his side be the one that ends the losing habit against the Minstermen.

“If York were to beat Luton, it wouldn’t have anything to do with being a bogey side, I don’t hold anything on that at all,” the boss said at his Monday press call.

“All I look at is the best team on the day has got the best chance of winning. We’ve just got to try and be the best side.

“It’s like habits. Something can become a habit, so do you just accept it’s going to happen? Or do something to break it?

“If you’ve got a bad habit, you want to do something to break it, so not beating York often enough is a bad habit and we need to find a way of breaking it.”
