Exeter City 0-0 York City

Exeter and York shared the points as they played out a scrappy goalless draw at St James Park.

A poor first half saw Stephane Zubar carried off injured, while a clash of heads between Troy Brown and Vadane Oliver led to another lengthy delay.

There was not a shot on goal in the first half, but both sides improved after the break, with Manny Oyeleke and Ryan Harley going close for the hosts.

Exeter rise to eighth in League Two, while York slip down to 18th.

York City boss Russ Wilcox told BBC Radio York:

"It is a fantastic point because Exeter were better than us on the day.

"I don't want to make excuses but we had eight hours on the road yesterday, we have had five games in 22 days and, to be honest, we looked dead on our feet.

"Look at character and how resolute we were towards the end - we'd probably have lost that last season, but we dug in and stayed solid."
