York Beat Town Again

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 14/03/2012

ON Saturday Grimsby experienced the joy of last minute victory. On Tuesday night the tables were turned and the Mariners tasted last minute defeat to York City in a game they had somehow clawed themselves back into contention having been losing comprehensively 2-0.

Town had fallen behind to a goal in the first half. York then doubled their lead right at the start of the second half and were good value for their two goal margin. By the time that Grimsby found the net through Elding York could easily had four or five, but somehow Grimsby managed to get a second through Coulson and a lucky point looked on the cards. However a last gasp goal by York after Town gave the ball away looking for a winner saw Grimsby fall to six points off the play-off places.

Top scorer Hearn was rested with an achilles problem which allowed Soares could play as well as Winn. Elding operated as a solitary striker.

Town had the first chance when Elding had an early header which the 'keeper tipped over for a corner. The Town striker had a second chance soon after when he tried to lob the 'keeper but it was just too high.

York then had a great chance but Blair miscued when in a strong position on the far post.

York then took the lead when a mistake by Townsend gifted a chance to Reed, who took the opportunity slotting it through McKeown's legs.

On 27 a terrific turn and shot by Winn saw his volley tripped away from a corner.

Another goalmouth scramble saw York almost score but McKeown denied them and then Town broke and Coulson almost scored as the match swung from one end to the other.

McLaughlin was played through in a great opportunity to put York 2-0 up. McKeown spread himself way to deny McLaughlin, who skied the rebound over the goal.

York went in at half time deservedly leading 1-0.

York scored almost straight from the restart. McKeown didn't hang on to a headed shoot and York reacted quickest through Smith to knock the rebound in.

Wood came on to replace Thanoj in midfield, then York almost added a third but the ball was cleared after another scramble.

With Town being totally outclassed in all areas Winn picked out the run of Elding who guided the ball past the 'keeper to give Grimsby a lifeline.

With 9 minutes left Town amazingly draw the game level when Coulson scored with another headed goal.

Just when it looked like Town might get at least a point, Fyfield won the ball in injury time and was allowed to run over half the length of the pitch unchallenged and blast it in.
