Accrington Stanley 3-2 York City

Jackie McNamara suffered defeat in his first game as York manager as Accrington progressed to the second round of the FA Cup.

Sean McConville shot in off the post to put Stanley ahead but Vadaine Oliver soon tapped in to level.

Matt Crooks fired Accrington back in front after a stunning solo run, before Josh Windass secured victory from the spot after Billy Kee was fouled.

Michael Coulson's header late on was only a consolation for City.

York City manager Jackie McNamara told BBC Radio York:

McNamara on Accrington v York

"I thought some things were pleasing but from my point of view I thought the goals we lost were very poor. They were too easy.

"You can understand why we haven't won in 10.

"From middle to front we look a threat when we do things properly and quickly but defensively I think we play as individuals which we need to sort out quickly."
