York City lost to League Two leaders Northampton Town to leave them stranded at the foot of the table.
Northampton took the lead when John-Joe O’Toole headed home following Lee Martin’s corner. The latter had thwarted Russell Penn with a goal-line clearance earlier in the game.
York - who had Luke Hendrie red carded late on - went 2-0 behind after Marc Richards netted.
Defeat leaves the Minstermen bottom of League Two, four points adrift of safety.
