Late York ef­fort has Fl­itcroft shak­ing

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO - By Michael Hen­son

BURY boss David Fl­itcroft was frus­trated with his side as they threw away a two-goal lead to draw with York.

The Shak­ers went 2-0 ahead through An­drew Tutte and Danny Nardiello.

How­ever Jake Hyde and Luke Sum­mer­field equalised to take a share of the points and Fl­itcroft in­sists Bury need to start see­ing games out.

“We were men­ac­ing up un­til they scored,” he said.“We put some dan­ger­ous balls into the box and we got our just re­wards with the two goals.

“First half I was quite pleased with how the game was pan­ning out but sec­ond half there was no real verve and en­ergy to what we did. But we’ve got to see the game out at 2-0 up.You’ve got to get through the next ten min­utes.

“Their goal gave them real hope. It be­came un­com­fort­able and it didn’t need to be. I was dis­ap­pointed with the way the two goals were cond­eded. It’s be­come a trend and we’ve got to stop it. At 2-0 up, we’ve won the game and it’s a comfy af­ter­noon, and that’s what we should have had. But we’ll come good.We work too hard not to.”

The best chance of the first half came a minute be­fore the break and it fell to the away side. The ball fell kindly to Diego De Giro­lamo six yards out from goal but was un­able to get his ef­fort on tar­get and put his shot high over the bar.

An early goal in the sec­ond half kicked the game into life and it was Bury who grabbed it. Tutte un­leashed a shot from 25 yards out which took a slight de­flec­tion be­fore burst­ing into the back of the net to give the home side the lead.

It was 2-0 five min­utes later when Chris Hussey whipped a free-kick to the near post for Nardiello to glance in.

York re­duced the deficit in the 67th minute through Hyde as he headed in at the back post from Michael Coul­son’s cen­tre, be­fore the come­back was com­plete 11 min­utes later as Sum­mer­field buried a free­kick into the top cor­ner from range.

York are now five games un­beaten away from home in the league and man­ager Russ Wil­cox be­lieved they earned the point after be­ing 2-0 down.

“I thought it was a mag­nif­i­cent per­for­mance from our lads,” he said.

“There’s a tinge of dis­ap­point­ment in there but there shouldn’t be when we we’re 2-0 down against what I be­lieve will be a top-seven team.

“They’re on a bad run now but there is enough equal­ity in the group to fin­ish in the play-offs.

“We’ve cre­ated enough op­por­tu­ni­ties to win but, again, it’s about get­ting that first key goal.”
