MINSTERMEN ON THE MARCH TO SURVIVAL
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.
