York City 4 Bristol Rovers 1: Chambers kept waiting for hat-trick decision as axe descends on McGhee

Have your say

YORK CITY ended their poor home run with victory over relegation-haunted Bristol Rovers, who sacked manager Mark McGhee after the game.

Gary Mills’s side had won only two of their previous 10 home league games, but their victory here was easy enough although they were a touch fortunate that Rovers did not take advantage of first-half mistakes by Chris Smith and Chris Doig.

York’s first goal after 13 minutes came when Ashley Chambers’s shot was deflected over Sam Walker by Gary Kenneth’s headed attempt to clear. The League will decide this week if it was an own goal, which would deny Chambers a hat-trick.
