Accrington Stanley 1-1 York City

Accrington and York shared the spoils to keep both sides above the League Two relegation zone.

The visitors took the lead when Dean Winnard was judged to have dragged back Wes Fletcher, who converted the penalty for his eighth goal of the season.

But Stanley equalised on the stroke of half-time when George Bowerman found the bottom corner from eight yards out.

Stanley piled on the pressure at the end but neither side could find the winning goal.

Post-match: York boss Worthington

"We probably didn't play as well as we have done and it's one of those games that when you play like that you think we could have got three points from it.

"Having played some of the games that we've played recently and played very well and only got one point, it would have been nice.

"But Accrington have been on a good run over the course of the last 10 games and coming here is not easy.

"When you pick up a point away from home it's always good."
