York City continue fine run of form in a crucial win. York are very much still in contention for play-offs after great late run of form and faced 21st placed Telford United in a midweek clash in York. Telford ahead of the relegation zone by 1 point and ahead of Farsley Celtic who are in last.
The game started and York were all over Telford as expected and it only felt as if it was a matter of time until York took the lead. Jack McKay scored the deserved goal for York. Mitch Hancox got the ball to Jack McKay on the edge of the area and he curled it past the Telford goalkeeper to put the home side ahead. The half continued very much the same with York playing lovely football that Telford just couldn't deal with. York doubled their lead just before half time with a lovely goal from Akil Wright who drove forwards with the ball and fired the ball into the bottom corner from far out. The second half was more level but York were still the better side. There weren't many chances and Telford pulled one back around the 80th minute giving the travelling Telford fans hope. The goal was scored by Jason Oswell after getting on the end of a corner and punishing the home side. York killed off any hope of any comeback after they grabbed a third through Maxim Kouogun who scored his first goal for York City after he headed the ball in from a corner. The game finished in a 3-1 win for the hosts.
This win means it was 4 on the trot for York pushing up to 11th only 3 points off the play-offs with 2 games in hand. Telford sink into deeper trouble and are only 1 point away from the relegation zone having played a game more.
