York City 3-0 Braintree Town

York City strengthened their National League survival hopes as they eased past Braintree Town.

Jon Parkin fired home a superb free-kick from 25 yards to give the hosts a great start as they looked to move within three points of their opponents in the table.

Parkin headed against the bar as York looked to press home their first-half superiority, before Asa Hall doubled their lead in stoppage-time by nodding in Amari Morgan-Smith's cross.

Morgan-Smith made it 3-0 with 14 minutes remaining, giving Gary Mills' side their fourth win in six league games and moving them to within two points of safety.
