Hartlepool United 2-0 York City

Hartlepool's two late goals condemned York to their first defeat of 2014.

York missed a good chance to take the lead when Keith Lowe lifted the ball over the crossbar from six yards out.

Luke James opened the scoring on 82 minutes, firing in a low shot from the edge of the area after getting on the end of a Jack Baldwin knockdown.

And the lead was doubled when substitute Jack Barmby, the son of former England international Nicky, curled in a high shot on 89 minutes.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

York City manager Nigel Worthington told BBC Radio York:

"The performance for 82 minutes was very good. We were very strong, we were resilient, we competed and it was a good game overall.

"But the situation of how the first goal came about disappoints you from the point of view of indiscipline.

"That knocks the stuffing out of you and you're trying to get back in the game. Then they get a second because their tails are up.

"So it's there, you deal with it and because of the game on Tuesday night we've got to get ready to go for that."
