York City boss Sam Collins is targeting a strong run in the FA Trophy despite a tough draw at Kidderminster Harriers, The York Press say.

The Minstermen have failed to win any of their last seven contests against Kiddy, who also knocked them out in the first-round proper of last term’s competition.

That match ended 2-1 in the hosts’ favour with the two sides now scheduled to meet again at Aggborough one stage earlier a week on Saturday.

Being an interested observer during City’s 3-2 Trophy final triumph over Macclesfield in 2017, has whetted Collins’ appetite for success in non-League football’s premier knockout competition, which the Bootham Crescent club also won during their historic double Wembley-winning campaign of 2011/12.

On the challenge ahead, Collins, speaking in the build up to the league clash with Chester, said: “I just want to win every game whatever competition that may be in.

“I felt that way going to Swindon on Saturday and, as players, you need to feel like that in every training session as well.”
