Match ends, York City 1, Accrington Stanley 0.
Keith Lowe's goal against Accrington Stanley earned 10-man York City their first league win at home this season.
Piero Mingoia and Matt Crooks both called York keeper Alex Cisak into action before Lowe headed in Michael Coulson's cross to put the hosts ahead.
Brad Halliday was then sent-off for a two-footed challenge on Tom Aldred with almost half an hour still remaining.
The closest Stanley came to a leveller was Lee Molyneux's 25-yard effort which hit the outside of the post.
York City manager Russ Wilcox told BBC Radio York:
"It's a monkey on the back and it's done now. To do it with a clean sheet and to do it with the spirit, endeavour commitment, attitude and application that the players showed today, everybody associated with the club should be very proud of the players.
"To play 38 minutes with 10 men against a team that's just taken four points out of the last two games is a great victory.
"I thought at times we saw the game out comfortably.
"It's a terrific three points and the fans were amazing."
