Defender Connor Brown hasn’t given up yet on the play-offs as York City prepare to face Brackley Town this weekend.
The 26-year-old right-back has been in and out of the side since arriving from Guiseley in January, but has actually impressed certain sections of the fanbase through his committed and wholehearted approach.
Brown is only contracted to the Minstermen until the end of the current season, unlike a number of his playing colleagues. However, despite that uncertainty, he’s still fully focused on getting the club as high as possible in the table.
“It’s still on if things go our way,” Brown told BBC Radio York. “So we have to try and win the game and if results go our way hopefully we can nick that last spot.
“Obviously we’ve had a lot of injuries up front, and when you lose main threat Parky [Jon Parkin], it’s going to affect you a lot,” he reasoned. “But it’s also [about] concentration. We’ve been conceding rubbish goals, while things haven’t been dropping in the box for us but have been for them. It’s just been one thing after another and luck’s not really been going our way.
“I’ve been satisfied with how I’ve done but been a bit disappointed that when I’ve played we’ve not got results,” Brown admitted. “That’s the main thing. If I was playing rubbish and we were winning, I wouldn’t really be bothered. It’s just been really frustrating.”
