Have York City’s wonderful supporters finally given up on promotion with still four games of their season remaining?

Successive defeats without even managing a single goal against neighbours Harrogate Town and Nuneaton Town suddenly leave their club appearing unlikely to make the end-of-season play-offs.

That means it’s now just one point from the last nine available heading towards the final couple of weeks of the campaign. It’s little surprise that the mood of the City faithful has turned increasingly dark …

As it stands, York are still seventh in the table – the final place of the, remember, newly-introduced extended play-off system –  and a couple of points clear of Chorley, who though crucially now have two games in hand.

Meanwhile, Blyth Spartans are a further three points behind but would again overtake the Minstermen should they win their two outstanding fixtures.

However, those two clubs actually meet at Victory Park this weekend, with City simultaneously travelling to struggling Gainsborough Trinity.

Therefore somebody is going to lose ground – but as their rivals directly clash in Cheshire,  do York have what it takes to take maximum advantage?
