LEE GREEN – YORK CITY

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

GUT­TED, mugged, robbed and dev­as­tated are all words that we could use to de­scribe this game. It should have all been over half-time.

York had two strong penalty ap­peals turned down, and only the hero­ics of the Ac­cring­ton keeper Paul Rachubka along with a goalline clear­ance kept them in the game un­til the 46th minute when Adam Reed broke the dead­lock and put City in front at half time.

Ac­cring­ton were hardly out of their half in the first 45 min­utes, their only shot on tar­get was from a dis­puted free-kick from the edge of the York area.

The sec­ond half was a more evenly matched af­fair with York ap­pear­ing to sit quite deep and invit­ing Ac­cring­ton to at­tack. The pres­sure that York were invit­ing proved too much as af­ter a melee in the area Peter Murphy some­how man­aged to squeeze the ball home. The draw does less for York than Ac­cring­ton, but we have got enough to stay up!
