Late York effort has Flitcroft shaking
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.”
