York City’s crisis in defense has deepened as Sean Newton has been ruled out for at least six weeks. The captain and key center-back came off during last Saturday’s 4:0 defeat at Gloucester City, leaving the team with no regular defenders. Manager Steve Watson, also can’t count on Josh King because he is positive on Covid-19, Henry Nash is lacking match fitness and is unlikely to play, while Matty Brown is still injured. Brackley Town is one of the best away teams in the league. They confirm that with two victories in the first two rounds away to Alfreton and Chorley, and will give their best to use these problems in York City and won at least a point.
