Hope pens York deal
York boss Chris Brass
Brass says his team face a test of character
Defender Richard Hope has agreed a new three-month contract at York City.

The former Northampton and Darlington centre-back joined the Minstermen in August and has now extended his stay after an impressive start to the season.

"Richard has signed and we're happy with that," said York player-manager Chris Brass.

After starting with four straight victories, City have lost their last three games and Brass is looking to get back to winning ways against Darlington on Tuesday.

It's been taking us 45 minutes to get going and we've got to make sure we play well from the start against Darlington

"We haven't got time to dwell on that," he said.

"We're back at home now and with two games in a row, we've got to make sure we get the right results.

"If we had won on Saturday we would have been top of the table and we've got to remember that."

Brass added: "It's disappointing that we've not managed to extend the good start, but you learn more after you've suffered a few defeats.

"I'm finding out one or two things and it's a good test of character now.

"It's been taking us 45 minutes to get going and we've got to make sure we play well from the start against Darlington.

"With it being a bit of a derby and with a good crowd it should help us start the game with a good tempo."
