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."
