York City

They are the best team in this league and the biggest favorite for the title. And one of the biggest names in this league. But, once again, they struggle during the season. York was in League Two a couple of seasons ago, and now they are in the National League North from 2017. They are favorites for the top of the table every season, but somehow they failed.

This season they moved to a brand new stadium, and they want to play at the highest level possible at him, not in the sixth tier. But, they struggled during the whole season with manager Steve Watson. Watson was sacked in November when York was 15th on the table. John Askey comes in as an interim manager until the end of the season, and he improves the results a lot.

York is now 7th in the table with 49 points, and the teams above them (Southport and Chorley) are only a point or two far. They are without a defeat for almost two months, precisely 12 games, and only the two best teams in this league, Brackley and Gateshead, had won more points in the last two months than York.

In the last two months, York scored many goals, but they also conceded a lot. They failed to score in only one game from the last 12 but also kept only three clean sheets in the last 14.

Boston United

The club with the same history as York. They were in the Football League a little more than ten years ago, and now they are in the sixth tier for many years. They also moved to the brand new stadium two years ago, and they also have the ambition to play in a much higher division than this.

In the previous two seasons, they were 2nd and 5th at the moment when the season was stopped and canceled because of the coronavirus. They also have an almost identical season as York. Boston also sacked their manager Craig Elliott because of poor results, at the start of January, and Paul Cox took charge. Paul Cox didn’t change things too much. Boston is too inconsistent. But the style of play is much better, and they are improving a lot, especially in attack.

Boston is currently 8th in the table with 45 points, only one place behind York and four points behind them. They are coming into this match after a defeat against Gateshead on Saturday, which breaks their good run of four games without a defeat.

Boston is, like York, also a very good attacking side, but with bigger problems in defense. In the last 22 games, they failed to score only once, but also they managed to keep only four clean sheets in the last 19 games.


Since 2017 they have played seven games. Boston had won four games, York two, and one was finished with a draw. Both teams scored at least one goal in five of those seven games.

York City vs. Boston United Prediction

The momentum is on York’s side. They are a much-improved team under the new manager. Boston still isn’t. This is a big derby because these teams are two very big names in this league with an ambition to get promoted to the fifth tier. This is a game between 7th and 8th in the table, so a big battle for the playoff spot.

We will skip a bet on full-time and focus on goals. As we said, York and Boston are two very good attacking sides, but with not great defensive records in the last couple of weeks. They score a lot but also concede a lot.

21 of 31 Boston’s games are finished with BTTS (68%) and 15 of 30 York’s games are also finished with BTTS (50%). And that’s our bet.

Pick: BTTS
Odds: 1.70
