Manager Neal Ardley heavily criticised his AFC Wimbledon side and also claimed York City's winner had arrived after the referee tripped one of his own players.

"The goal is a ludicrous decision from the referee. He's tripped our player up and then given them a free-kick" - Neal Ardley
Michael Coulson grabbed the only goal of the contest four minutes from the break after Ryan Bowman was adjudged to
have been fouled. From the resultant free-kick the ball was eventually delivered by Lanre Oyebanjo for Coulson to prove himself the match-winner for the second consecutive weekend.

However, York should really have had more goals with Bowman missing an absolute sitter and also their strong claims for a handball on the line remaining ignored, although that was in the end of no consolation to an angry Ardley.

"We gave the ball away nearly every time we got it. We moved the ball too slowly, we were nervous in the way we played, which seems to be a common thing at home and I don't know why," he told SkySports. "When we did play around them and get our spare man in, we came backwards.

"The goal is a ludicrous decision from the referee. He's tripped our player up and then given them a free-kick," Ardley continued. "That's why I was furious and he knew it. It's up to us then to defend the second phase and we didn't do it."

Good game and decent teams - Penney

York City assistant manager Dave Penney believes it was a case of a couple of well-matched teams following the 2-2 draw with Spennymoor Town at Bootham Crescent.

York City 2 Spennymoor Town 2

Both sides were denied a sixth consecutive victory as York City twice led against promotion rivals Spennymoor Town at Bootham Crescent.

On loan defender Jonny Burn's third goal in nine games earned them a half-time lead that was cancelled out by Ryan Hall soon after the restart.

But Aidan Connolly restored the home advantage with seventeen minutes remaining, although that was swiftly matched by Andrew Johnson as the honours were eventually shared.
