Min­ster­men’s chief is un­der pres­sure

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

NA­TIONAL LEAGUE NORTH: An­gry York City fans called for man­ager Martin Gray’s sack­ing af­ter a dis­mal 1-0 de­feat at 10man strug­glers Gains­bor­ough Trin­ity.

The Min­ster­men look to be blow­ing their play-off hopes fol­low­ing a third suc­ces­sive loss with­out scor­ing and the trav­el­ling faith­ful directed their fury at ex-Dar­ling­ton chief Gray as the team dropped out of the top seven.

York were a man to the good for three-quar­ters of the game fol­low­ing on-loan Hull City left­back Ryan Flem­ing’s first-half dis­missal for a strong chal­lenge on Con­nor Brown.

But it was Ash­ley Wors­fold’s 54th-minute strike that set­tled mat­ters.

The former Har­ro­gate Town for­ward found an empty net af­ter goal­keeper Adam Bartlett had raced out of his goal only to punch weakly and flat­ten team­mate Dan Parslow.

A 2-0 home tri­umph over South­port saw Har­ro­gate stay within one win of lead­ers Sal­ford City with both teams hav­ing three fix­tures to play.

Ryan Fal­low­field set up a goal in each half for Mark Beck and Ge­orge Thom­son.

The full-back also blocked an equal­is­ing chance from Dion Charles on the line, and James Belshaw made a stun­ning save from Jason Gilchrist.

Adam Boyes kept Brad­ford Park Av­enue’s faint play-off as­pi­ra­tions alive with a brace in his team’s 2-1 vic­tory at Bos­ton, tak­ing his sea­son’s tally to 18 in the league.

Pil­grims cap­tain Jor­dan Keane had headed the hosts in front, but Boyes equalised with a firm header and won the game on 90 min­utes.
