Skipper Sean Newton admits his team have proved massively inconsistent all season despite currently holding onto a play-off place.

That was in evidence once again as the visitors fell to a potentially costly 2-1 defeat at promotion rivals Kidderminster Harriers earlier this week.

It means City have now won just two of their last eight games as the business end of the season approaches with the possibility of a trio of difficult play-off encounters – more than likely away from home.

“It just comes down to us as individuals,” Newton told BBC Radio York. “We don’t prepare any different and we don’t go out there not to play well. It’s just where we’re at at the minute.

“We’ve been like that all season but managed to stay in the play-offs. So at the minute I’d take another eight indifferent performances as long as we get in the play-offs. That’s all that matters come the end of the season.

“It’s a bizarre one this season because last year we were probably on more of a high as a team fighting relegation than we are this year in the play-offs,” he added. “Because the expectation is this club being in this league, it should be at the top and we’re not.

“We’ve got eight massive games and we need to give our all, and hopefully pick up as many points as we can and get in the play-offs.”
