York City 0-0 Exeter City

York claimed a point against Exeter City but remain in relegation danger.

The visitors enjoyed the better of the first-half with Liam Sercombe and Clinton Morrison both forcing saves.

The Minstermen improved after the break with Russell Penn's strike sending keeper James Hamon into action, while Wes Fletcher headed over.

Exeter are now without a win in seven games and are nine points off the play-off places, while York are above the bottom two places on goal difference.

York City manager Russ Wilcox told BBC Radio York:

"I think it's a game we should have won, especially with our second-half performance.

"I can't fault the players for attitude, work ethic, desire. You'd like a little bit more quality, but it is difficult out there on the pitch at the moment to create that quality.

"We've got to move on to the next game. It's a point. We have to speak about the positive side of it."
