York City skipper Chris Smith has been confirmed as available for this weekend’s home clash with Bristol Rovers.
|“The gaffer wasn’t pleased with the yellow card but it was just instinct” – Chris Smith|
The 31-year-old centre-back collected a late booking in the weekend defeat at Plymouth Argyle following a heavy injury-time challenge. But it was only his fourth of the campaign and he must therefore avoid a fifth caution and subsequent suspension until the cut-off point of 31st December.
“The gaffer wasn’t pleased with the yellow card but it was just instinct,” Smith told The Press. “I’ve been pretty pleased with my discipline for a defender otherwise.
“Suspensions are always there of course and I want to play every game if I am fit and the manager chooses me,” he added. “If I’m suspended, it will also mean I have to fight to win my place back.”
