York City striker Jason Walker has predicted this year's battle for promotion from Blue Square Bet Premier could be the tightest ever.

After the first ten games, only three points separate Tamworth in ninth from leaders Luton.

Walker told BBC Radio York: "I think it'll be the tightest league it's been for a while.

"Me personally I think it's going to be the lowest points score that's ever won the league."

Walker added: "There's a lot of teams that have strengthened. You look at Forest Green, they've spent a bit of money and are doing alright and Tamworth are up there with us."

York face current league leaders (and Walker's former club) Luton on Saturday at Bootham Crescent.

He continued: "It's always been a big game and it's two teams that are fighting for the title and for promotion.

"It's what you play football for. You like to play the big games and you like to play against your friends.

"I did that with Barrow and I scored and we won, so if it happens again I'll be delighted.

"My target is to win the league. I set my own targets, I don't like to tell them - if I'm being honest I want to score in every game, but that's not going to happen.

"The main thing is the team win and we get promoted at the end of the year really."
