Accrington Stanley 2-2 York City

Accrington Stanley's Josh Windass scored a late equaliser to deny lowly York City a valuable League Two win.

After a goalless first half, the visitors took the lead through Luke Summerfield's deflected 20-yard effort.

But Sean Maguire, on loan from West Ham, pounced on a loose ball to equalise, before Jake Hyde restored York's lead with a close-range finish.

However, Windass's 89th-minute 20-yard free-kick ensured a draw to leave York one point above the relegation zone.

York City manager Russ Wilcox told BBC Radio York:

"I'm devastated because I thought we had the game in the bag and it's so cruel again.

"I feel like I'm saying the same things after each game.

"But again, game management. We've got to do better and keep our shape and discipline and don't give free-kicks away on the edge of the box.

"Is it a point gained? No, it's two lost but the lads are giving everything for this club."
