York City 2-1 Notts County

Michael Coulson
Michael Coulson scored his sixth goal of the season

York City secured successive home wins for the first time this season with a 2-1 victory over Notts County.

Jon Stead struck the bar early on for County, before Michael Coulson lobbed Roy Carroll from 15 yards to open the scoring for York.

The Minstermen doubled their lead when Russell Penn's backheel allowed Kenny McEvoy to cross to Bradley Fewster, who converted from close range.

Lubo Satka's own goal, an attempted back pass, handed Notts a consolation.

York City manager Jackie McNamara told BBC Radio York:

"I'm delighted with the win. We had to withstand a number of corners but I thought we dealt with it. That was my main concern before the game - the superior height advantage.

"We scored a fantastic goal with Coulson and grew in confidence after that.

"The second half was a bit scrappy and nervy but I'm delighted. It's a massive three points."
