The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

DAVE Winfield’s headed goal in the 73rd minute could be worth its weight in gold for York City as Russ Wil­cox’s men made a huge stride to­wards Foot­ball League sur­vival with a home victory over Chel­tenham Town.

There was very lit­tle to choose be­tween the teams, with Chel­tenham gal­vanised by the ar­rival of Gary John­son.

De­fences were on top for large pe­ri­ods, with the Robins rarely threat­en­ing in the fi­nal third, but deal­ing well with York’s set­piece threat.

But one lapse al­lowed Winfield to power in exRobins star Luke Sum­mer­field’s cor­ner to send the home fans wild.

It was cer­tainly not pretty or even that con­vinc­ing, but it may be one of York’s most im­por­tant re­sults of the cam­paign, giv­ing them a five-point safety cush­ion.

Mean­while Chel­tenham sim­ply must pick up a home win against Steve­nage on Easter Mon­day if they are to keep their hopes of staving off the drop alive, but John­son cer­tainly has them work­ing again.
