York City 1-1 Mansfield Town

York remain just outside the League Two relegation zone after drawing with Mansfield.

Russell Penn's low cross set up Diego De Girolamo to smartly turn and score from close range for the Minstermen.

Striker Daniel Carr, on his full debut after joining on loan from Huddersfield, volleyed home from a Vadaine Oliver header to equalise.

De Girolamo and Michael Coulson went close for the home side late on but both teams had to settle for a point.

York City manager Russ Wilcox told BBC Radio York:

Wilcox on York City v Mansfield

"It was a game of two halves. We passed the ball and moved the ball well, we created some good opportunities and scored a fantastic goal.

"Second half we asked the lads to be brave again against a team that are very effective at what they do but we couldn't keep hold of the ball.

"I've only been in the building nine days. Positives from today is we're unbeaten in two because that's what you have to look at.

"There's always things to learn from to move us forward."
