Last time out in the league: Altrincham 1-3 York City

The Minstermen beat Altrincham 3-1 in their opening National League North game this season; an own goal before half time and two second half strikes from Jordan Burrow and Josh Tait securing the victory.

This is the fourth fixture between the two sides this year. Altrincham come to Bootham Crescent having already won two games 1-0 here this season, meaning City were knocked out of the FA Trophy and FA Cup.
