York City 1-2 Hartlepool United

Hartlepool United needed a late deflected winner to beat York City and secure a second successive league win.

After both sides went close in a lively first half, Reece Thompson put the hosts in front when Pools failed to clear a Luke Summerfield cross.

Billy Paynter's fine curler in to the top corner on 71 minutes levelled things, before Michael Woods won it.

He needed a stroke of luck, however, as his mis-kicked shot went in after getting a touch off James Berrett.

York City manager Russ Wilcox told BBC Radio York:

Wilcox on York v Hartlepool

"I asked the lads to be more entertaining at home and I thought the first 45 minutes were certainly the best we've played since I've been here.

"We had 16 attempts at their goal today. But again it boils down to both boxes and being a bit more clinical.

"Certainly in the first half when we dominated you've got to score and we didn't."
