York City paid for mistakes in a 2-0 defeat to a strong Premier League Hull City line-up in their latest friendly at Bootham Crescent.

Sone Aluko and Yannick Sagbo were both on target after respective slips from recalled goalkeeper Michael Ingham and central defender Keith Lowe following a scoreless opening half.

Robert Snodgrass had already seen an eighth-minute effort disallowed from Shane Long's knockdown due to the ball running out of play while Lindon Meikle's 30-yard reply was easily gathered by Allan McGregor.

David Meyler then nodded over from a corner for the visitors midway through the opening half before both Robbie Brady and Paul McShane were similarly off-target ahead of the interval.

Hull chief Steve Bruce made a number of changes at the break and was rewarded within five minutes when Aluko's 20-yard shot should really have been comfortably saved by keeper Ingham.

Home striker Jake Hyde tried his luck from the edge of the area but McGregor parried and Meikle next volleyed wide. Manager's son Alex Bruce soon headed over a Tom Huddlestone corner as the visitors tried to extend their lead.

That should really have arrived just past the hour-mark with Huddlestone releasing new signing Tom Ince but Ingham comfortably denied the recent Inter Milan target.

However, York came within inches of an equaliser as Michael Coulson received substitute Ryan Jarvis' 69th minute through ball and struck the top of the crossbar with Scottish international shot-stopper McGregor well-beaten.

Manager Nigel Worthington had begun making changes and replacement keeper Jason Mooney held Ince's shot-on-the-turn before fellow substitute Lewis Montrose drove wide.

The Tigers were though adding to their tally when Sagbo took advantage of Lowe's mistake with thirteen minutes remaining.

Anthony Straker immediately drilled over at the other end while Liam Rosenior produced a goal-saving challenge on Jarvis before Sagbo and Ince were each wide in response.

York City: Ingham (Mooney 69), McCoy (Morley 84), Lowe, McCombe (Winfield 46), Ilesanmi, Meikle (Murray 67), Penn, Platt (Montrose 62), Straker, Hyde (Jarvis 62), Coulson (Rzonca 84)
