Footymad preview History of the York City v Southend United fixture

Southend United travel to take on York City at Bootham Crescent on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Shrimpers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The last time the two teams met at York City was back in August 2003, over five years ago, with York City running out comfortable 2-0 winners in a League Division Three match.
