York City striker Michael Coulson will take heart from the second-half-of-the-season revival at Bootham Crescent.

"I was out in the cold and I battled back" - Michael Coulson
The Minstermen surged from just above the relegation zone at the turn of the year to eventually claiming seventh place in
the table and a play-off position.

Coulson, 26, is certainly no stranger to fighting back having previously suffered three cruciate ligament injuries during his career. He had also been out of favour earlier in the campaign but finally ended it as a really key performer in the side.

"I have to take a little bit of courage from what happened this season," Coulson told The Press. "I was out in the cold and I battled back. It is pleasing to finish the season that way.

"In the end, though, it doesn't mean anything when you don't win the play-offs," he reflected. "I will be back again next season and we will see what happens then."

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.

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.
