AFC Telford United 0-0 York City

Promotion-chasing York City were frustrated by Telford as they were held to a goalless draw at the Bucks Head.

After scoring seven against Kettering on Saturday, York struggled to break down the Bucks.

Telford keeper Ryan Young had to deny Andre Boucaud, Matty Blair and Jason Walker in the opening 15 minutes.

Daniel Preston went close to a late winner for the hosts but his header from Sean Newton's cross went over Michael Ingham's crossbar.

Telford boss Andy Sinton made two key changes, bringing back midfielder Phil Trainer and defender Dan preston.

Trainer had not started a game since the 2-1 defeat at Forest Green in mid-October, while Preston was dropped after last month's 4-0 FA Cup first round thrashing at Chelmsford.


AFC Telford United boss Andy Sinton told BBC Radio Shropshire:

"We got on the front foot, exactly what I was asking for. We must start realising that we must treat every game like a York or Luton.

"We were outstanding and unlucky not to come away with three points. I thought our energy levels were superb.

"I thought the couple of people I brought back into the side were on top of their game."

York City manager Gary Mills told BBC Radio York:

"People might say you've got to beat teams like Telford to go on and win the league. Maybe you have, but we'll keep going.

"There's going to be times like tonight where teams come out second half and we have to dig deep.

"We have to keep our discipline. We have to keep our shape to come away with something and we've done that tonight so I'm proud of my players."
