York City 1-0 Yeovil Town

James Berrett scored against his former club to give York their first points of the League Two season against Yeovil.

Berrett, who moved from Huish Park in the summer, netted a deflected second-half winner from 20 yards to condemn the Glovers to a sixth straight defeat.

Yeovil goalkeeper Artur Krysiak denied Stephane Zubar from six yards out shortly before half-time.

He was tested again moments later when York midfielder Russell Penn's 20-yard strike forced him into a low save.

York City manager Russ Wilcox told BBC Radio York:

"I'm delighted to get off the mark. I think it's really important. You look at the table now and we're just three points off the play-offs.

"People might chuckle at that, but it's a positive mindset you can put towards the players.

"We were fortuitous with the goal, but if you don't shoot, you don't score."
