York City saw their fight to avoid relegation from the Football League suffer a setback at Bootham Crescent.

City needed a win, and looked set for all three points thanks to Vadaine Oliver’s first-half strike.

But on 88 minutes, Matt Bloomfield pounced for an equaliser.

The draw leaves York nine points off safety with fives games remaining.

York boss Jackie McNamara said: “It’s a game we should have had three points from - just like last weekend.

“We had a couple of opportunities to score a second goal by being clinical and we had limited them to very few chances.

“But the last goal came from a second ball we didn’t pick up and, when Scotty couldn’t hold on to their shot, their player was in the right spot to head it in. The players put so much work and effort in and we didn’t deserve that.

“The good football we played was there for everyone to see and we should have had so many more points from our last four home games. We’ve had a lot of matches where we should have been two or three goals ahead.

“I thought our front three caused them problems, the way they defend with their high line, but you’ve just got to finish the game off as well.

“We’ve got five games now to make up a nine-point gap and we still have to believe that can happen, so we will go to Hartlepool, play in the same manner and hope we get what we deserve.”
