Aldershot Town 0 York City 2 - Quick-fire burst seals welcome Minstermen win

TWO goals in seven minutes at the start of the second half saw York City claim their first win in five League Two matches with a well-deserved 2-0 success at Aldershot.

After a goalless first half, the Minstermen drew first blood when Jason Walker coolly played in Matty Blair, who finished to give the visitors the lead - netting his second goal of the campaign and first in the Football League.

City then doubled their tally from the penalty spot with Walker blasting into the middle of the net, the fourth time the frontman has found the net this term.

Mills’ troops then protected their lead adeptly to secure three valuable points.

Chris Smith recovered from injury to take his place in the York line-up for their clash against the Shots.
