SEMI-FI­NAL 1ST LEG YORK CITY 0 FLEET­WOOD 1

The Football League Paper - - NEWS -

FOR­MER Bootham Cres­cent hero Matty Blair silenced the York faith­ful with a sec­ond-half win­ner as their de­layed tie fi­nally took place 48 hours late.

Af­ter a del­uge caused the post­pone­ment on the Satur­day, Blair, who moved across the Pen­nines last sum­mer, scored the only goal five min­utes af­ter half­time.

Chances were few and far be­tween in the open­ing half with Calvin Andrew and Ryan Bro­bel try­ing their luck for York and An­toni Sarce­vic go­ing close at the other end.

But Blair made the break­though when he bun­dled in from close range af­ter Sarce­vic’s shot had been blocked on the line by Lanre Oye­banjo

David Ball wasted a glo­ri­ous chance to dou­ble the lead in the clos­ing stages when Nick Pope saved bril­liantly.

Sub­sti­tute Ryan Bow­man al­most scored a late equaliser but Town held out to end York’s 17-match un­beaten run.
