SIMON Walton struck an 85th-minute penalty as Crawley Town broke the hearts of York City with a last-gasp 1-0 victory in League Two.

City were looking to end a streak of nine league games without a win under caretaker boss Richard Cresswell who is favourite to succeed Russ Wilcox on a permanent basis.

And despite the Minstermen going particularly close in the first half through Vadaine Oliver and Bryn Morris, it was the hosts who had the last laugh.

Cresswell said: “The outcome is not what we looked for but the performance was absolutely fantastic. I felt we deserved something back from the game. It’s hard to take.”
